Recently the home of Joseph and Louise Marlow came on the market. Not surprisingly, it was under contract within a week.
A remarkable residence from 1948 with original features we consider contemporary…waxed concrete floors with radiant heat, for instance. The Marlow’s designed the home for their own family and it is still a very livable, family friendly space. Here is a photo spread from the 1952 Architectural Record book “A Treasury of Contemporary Houses.” (Click the thumbnails for larger pictures)
The home has been altered slightly to create a larger master suite and the kitchen appears to have been updated in the 80’s. The concrete floors have been tiled over and the wonderful original fireplace has been enclosed. I don’t think it would be too difficult to get the house back to its original loveliness and we hope the new owners are preservation minded!
