Mid-Century Modern: A phrase you hear a lot these days, often misused. But not here! This home is superb example of true Mid-Century Modern design.
Built in 1954, this home was conceived as a flagship of modern homebuilding for the developer/builders that opened this irrigated neighborhood in what was then, north Phoenix. Indeed, this is a dream home for anyone who cherishes and understands the incredible scale and optimistic detail found only in true Mid-Century Modern homes!
A rare find, this amazing home has been comfortably updated while retaining ALL of its original design details. The second owners have cherished this home after buying it from the estate of the original owner. They have completed a series of thoughtful upgrades and assured this home a bright future.
Originally featured in the Arizona Republic as early as 1955 and again as recently as 1995, the Paul E. Jones Residence, as the home was known, offered a very forward-thinking house design singled out for its “indoor-outdoor living” and its unique concept as a “patio-home”: with covered outdoor spaces intended for use to allow the owner to stretch their day-to-day living into the outdoors.
The home was constructed by Blesh-Sells Builders. Many of the original fixtures and details are still with the home. The home endures today in wonderful condition. There’s so much special here: a unique curved concrete block wall (which we think echoes an early computer punchcard!) and the generous overhangs which are perforated with round openings that let the sun playfully dance against the home throughout the day. Dramatic “V” shaped steel posts add support and style. Inside, inspired details such as the original wood screen doors and backlighted coved ceilings let the home feel both connected and comforting. The house offers a generous and very private yard, design and details are superb, and the upgrades and restorations are in perfect harmony with the original design! The home has stood the test of time.
This home is the rarest of finds; do not delay in attending the opening preview. Note: Call us for details regarding certain exclusions from this sale.
