It’s a square-off. One of Arquitectonica’s colorful, cube-studded townhomes on Graustark St. is back on the market, a year after its last sale, for $345K. This time around, the 30-year-old contemporary property’s asking price is $449,200.
Inside the white-washed space, most of the color pops come from the current furnishings. The western front’s shrouded quad-panel picture window illuminates the dining room (above) and adjacent kitchen. Smaller square portholes punched throughout the crisp-and-clean interior focus and filter lighting between rooms:
The living room, with minimalist fireplace (shown in the photo at the top of this story), is at the back of the 1,831-sq.-ft. home, so the floor-to-ceiling windows catch the rising sun. Most rooms have hardwood flooring:
The back door leads to a fenced patio, located down a short stack of stairs:
Helping draw light into the interior, a totally tubular central staircase (and echo chamber)
is topped by a gabled skylight 3 levels up.
Both bedrooms are on the top level:
A balconette off the front bedroom has both public and private sectors. The view west takes in neighboring Ranch Estates:
There are 2 full bathrooms . . .
and a powder room:
Viewed from above, the updated patio pit is also a cube fest:
The puzzle tiles are a recent addition. Here’s how the same space appeared in the home’s previous listing: (That tweak appears to be the biggest change to the home in the interim.)
Palm trees at curbside salute the row of townhomes’ carport bays. The listed property is second from the right in the photo below, which also shows how the understated front door all but blends into the wall’s grid:
The perky property is located west of Mt. Vernon St. on a street with namesake bridge spanning U.S. 59 a couple blocks to the north. Travel 4 blocks south and 4 blocks east and you’ll reach the city’s fine and contemporary art museums. There’s an open house scheduled for Sunday, around brunch time.
