Apart from the snazzy red cars parked by the home’s courtyard entry, a flat-topped 1963 Hilshire Village property keeps a low profile beneath the canopy of mature trees on its large lot, which is located in the Burkhardt Plaza neighborhood west of Wirt Rd. and just north of the Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church on the eastbound I-10 feeder road. Updated in 2009, the midcentury modern with the not-so-modern decor landed on the market a week ago, asking $1.1 million. By the weekend, though, the price had dropped to $997,500.
Terrazzo dominates the interior’s common rooms, which include a step-down family room that’s spanned by beams painted to match the ceiling:
Instead, a wall of windows draws the eye (and a lot of sofas):
Dinner serves a side dish of courtyard view through glass panels framed in heavy trim:
A more informal dining area awaits in the adjacent kitchen, which floats an island pair above boldly patterned flooring:
A skylight (one of several dotting the home) doubles the room’s lighting:
Sliding doors at the far end of the kitchen lineup open to a back patio:
Another set of sliders lands in the study:
And extra-wide sliders span the master bedroom. Measuring 24 ft. by 17 ft., it’s about double the size of the 4 camera-shy secondary bedrooms.
This peek-a-boo bathroom appears to belong to the master suite. Two other full bathrooms and a half-bath land elsewhere in the 3,683-sq.-ft. floor plan:
Portions of a patio-deck are covered (or semi-covered by skylights):
There’s also an open air section that’s closer to a winding paver-and-pebble pathway:
At the back of the home, the study and master bedroom share a shallow potted-plant-lined decklet tucked beneath the roof’s overhang:
The back lot tapers to a jagged wedge that’s mostly lawn:
Low fencing marks the ravine lot’s edge:
