On the market for the first time in 35 years, This Week's Find is a mid-century modern ranch house on DC's western boundary.
The three-bedroom house was designed and built by commercial builder George Tipp in 1961 and features natural materials while creating ample opportunities tp access fresh air and sunlight. A flagstone path leads up to the front of the house, where screened-in french doors are surrounded by windows and lead into a skylit vestibule.
Pocket doors off the tiled-floor foyer lead into the living room, which has wood-paneled walls and a stone corner fireplace with raised hearth. The family room has a slanted ceiling with built-in shelving covering one wall, and at the opposite end of the room is an elevated dining area.
Sliding glass doors lead from the kitchen, living room, and owner's bedroom into a screened-in porch with a vaulted ceiling that doubles as a slatted skylight; this room also has redwood-paneled walls, terrazzo flooring, and a brick chimney-like corner grill.
The three carpeted bedrooms each have vaulted ceilings, and a basement has a spacious office/rec room with tiled floors, wood paneled walls, and a wine closet. The lower level also has a full bath and a storage room/workshop with painted concrete floor. The backyard is elevated above the driveway.
