Sometimes a house is just a house, you know, walls, floors, roof, etc... Other times a house moves people. 6492 Ascot Drive moves me! It was my favorite house on Broker's Tour this week. Classic mid-century modernist design for the purist who relish preserved original features. This house appears to have original green slate floors, original floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors and huge open spaces. The chrome vintage Frigidaire oven is a piece of art, the original built-in cabinetry in the entry makes organization easy and the rumpus room downstairs gives this house great separation of space. Frankly, I want to sell this house to a buyer, so I can come back and visit.
This house is so much more that the mere details that I mentioned above. It is also about the light, the privacy and the feeling that this house gives once you greet it. The cantilever design of the house that Realtors, Linda Elkin and Art White from Red Oak Realty call quietude reminds me of the celebrated Dave Brubeck's home.
