Spectacular opportunity for midcentury architecture aficionados in Phoenix!  This Ralph Haver home, circa 1960, is a showstopper and located on a lovely, elevated half-acre lot in desirable Arcadia.

For home buyers looking for views and historic character, this is definitely one of our favorites of the last six months in Phoenix real estate.  The main house of 2248 sq. ft. features Haver’s trademark walls of glass, wood beamed ceiling, and an abundance of organic materials and finishes.  Check out the stone fireplace:

We can imagine some incredible, balmy evenings relaxing on this wraparound balcony and surveying the vistas below.

This is a one-of-a-kind time capsule with some major atomic age vibes.  Such a refreshing change from the pale gray, faux marble, open floorplan flips of the last few years.  Midcentury architecture feels somehow timeless and comforting, especially in times like these when so many of us are feeling upended and anxious.

The kitchen is completely 2021-ready with cement floors in a warm terracotta tone, ample storage, upgraded appliances and a fabulous copper hood.  I love that the current owners did not whitewash the stonework, which is such an essential element of this home.

The bathroom, too, has been thoughtfully redone and even incorporates a period-perfect sputnik ceiling pendant– so no midcentury Pepto-pink tile here.  What a simple-yet-luxe sanctuary. A+!

Bedrooms in midcentury homes, unlike the small bungalows of the 20s, featured generously-sized proportions and closets.

Don’t you think these ceilings and clerestory windows are just amazing?  The idea was to allow light into a space without sacrificing privacy, which has certainly been achieved here.

But wait, there’s more!

Haver designed this home with a 300 sq. ft.+ guest house and took great advantage of the exceptional lot.  There are multiple areas to enjoy, a lap pool, built-in BBQ, and grassy area for kids or pets.  Everything down to the river rock planter and offset paver tiles has been carefully considered and designed to integrate with the architecture of the home.  Even the pool is ringed with the same stone we find in the living spaces.  This seamless and cohesive design is missing in a lot of homes we see.

We’re huge fans of this special property, but what makes it doubly swoon-worthy is its lot.  Location is one thing that can’t be changed, and we always advise our clients to pay more attention to the way a home is sited as opposed to say, the tile in the kitchen.

According to Redfin, this home has been viewed over 1,000 times since last night, so if you’re looking to buy a midcentury home in Phoenix, let’s get moving and see it today!
