A modified 1959 mod home with tinted clerestory in Westbury has changed hands 5 times in 8 years — after decades with the same owner. Last week, the now-even-more-open-plan property appeared on the market once more, this time with a $425,000 asking price. It last sold in March 2013 for $348,000. Back in 2005, before all the flipping and renovations, it sold for $152,367. Other sales scored $129,000, $374,990, and $389,000. Somewhere in that chain of ownership came a big fan of glass-panel doors. They’re installed throughout the home, starting with the living room (above).
The dining room is a bit of a hub and pass-through space; it abuts the entry hall, located beyond a partial brick wall (above), the kitchen and columned flex space leading to another door pair:
The kitchen has a glass-panel door as well, but it’s a single, not a set. County records indicate a 2010 remodeling. The listing mentions flooring tweaks in 2011 and calls attention to the eat-in kitchen’s Silestone counters and honed and sealed Travertine floor.
More see-through doors, accessing another patio, show up in the master bedroom suite:
One of the 4 secondary bedrooms has been used as an office:
Another, with a door to the yard, has done time as a den. It’s between 2 back bedrooms:
This patio is in the side yard off the living room:
A modest overhang throws a splash of shade on a house-hugging patio area by the remaining yard on the home’s treeless west side.
Updates mentioned in the listing include French drains, under-slab plumbing, Hardiplank siding, low-E windows and doors, plus a recent roof and electrical wiring (plus all that window tinting in the living room, dining room and kitchen).
At 2,822 sq. ft., the home is one of the larger for its block, which is located north of W. Bellfort Ave. near Chimney Rock’s divided thoroughfares flanking the spillway. The quarter-of-an-acre property is one lot and a side street away from a fenced, landscape-shrouded low-rise city water tank. Nearby commercial properties include a pet groom and board resort.
