Set in a neighborhood of other mid-century modern residences, this White Oak post-and-beam-style home was designed by local mid-century modern architect Rudy Hermes. Hermes is perhaps best known as the designer of artist Charlie Harper’s Finneytown home (although the pair also collaborated, says Lincoln Road listing agent Susan Rissover, on several drawings of fantasy homes for a 1959 issue of Ford Times magazine).
The thing that’s so cool about mid-century modern houses are the unique touches sprinkled throughout. Here, we’re big fans of the stone-walled carport that doubles as a modern kind of porte cochère, the wooden walkway leading up to the orange front door, the parquet-floored kitchen with a built-in table for four, and that dramatic open staircase flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows. Unfortunately, this home was snapped up, sale pending, almost as soon as it was listed, but we wanted to share it with you anyway, because who doesn’t love a peek at a well-preserved mid-century modern? Safe to say they just don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
