Mid-Century Modern Dream in Kensington Terrace – Ralph Haver, AIA

This Mid-Century Home designed by Ralph Haver, AIA has it all! Charm, excitement, form & function combined. Nestled in Kensington Terrace, a “Haverhood” of just 12 homes, this home showcases Mid-Century Modern design & front-porch living. Original Owner/Architect, Harry Younkin AIA (revered for his local design contributions), created a seamless addition tastefully integrated into the whole. Renovations include sandblasted block, euro cabinet minimalism and design choices that allows MCM elements to shine! Iconic vaulted roofline, exposed beams, deeply shaded porches and colonnades add to the feel; balanced light from clerestory windows, floor to ceiling glazing & reveals allow the house to float in the space. Designed landscape is special beyond compare with mature trees and gracious gardens. Generous Primary Suite and closet will amaze you! This is one unique and irreplaceable MCM home with a fabulous architectural heritage.

Ralph Haver is know as one of the most prolific and iconic Mid Century Architects in the valley.  His use of vaulted rooflines, clerestory windows, large format 6 panes, beaming are a piece of our history.  His ability to bring connectivity between the exterior world and that of the interior house is unrivaled.  His use of light and glazing to blur those lines enhance the whole experience of living in “A HAVER”.  So well loved that his enclaves of homes are best known as “Haver-hoods”.  This little nook of homes in Kensington Terrace is no different, they all sit on a single cul-de-sac allowing for all of the neighbors surrounding to enjoy a similar aesthetic while creating a sense of community.  Sitting at the end of this cul-de-sac, this home has prime placement and is a fine example of his work along with a pristine example of stewardship.

The meticulous pride-of-ownership renovation includes sandblasted block, shining wood floors, minimalist clean lines throughout and added interest at every turn.  Not forgoing the outside-in Haver concept, renovation created outdoor spaces as special as indoors with lush greens, vertical interest, soft mixed with strong, water features and farm to table gardens to elevate the entire property. The charm of Mid Century, provenance of Ralph Haver and the floor plan and infrastructure of 2024, this home has it all.
