Full Description:
Rare opportunity to purchase an architecturally significant mid-century modern home in the Philadelphia area in restored condition. This home designed by Frank Weise in 1951 is an early steel frame home. The steel support gives the home the appearance of a floating second floor resting gently upon the glass corners of the lower floor. Frank Weise, a student of Walter Gropius at Harvard, designed the most unique, cutting edge, mid-century modern homes in the Philadelphia area. This home was built for Frank's brother Bernard, and is considered his finest. The home has an open floor plan with a surround of glass walls and delicate support structure further enlarging the feel of the spacious rooms. The structure and all systems of the home have recently been carefully restored to their former glory, preserving all original details! The 1960's kitchen by the NYC firm St. Charles Kitchens is a highlight (this firm was used by leading modern architects such as Philip Johnson in the Glass House). Ideal LOCATION, close to major roads and train for easy commute to Phila or NYC. The Bernard Weise Residence was on a recent tour featuring the best mid-century modern homes of the Philadelphia area and is featured on the website: ModernHomesPhiladelphia
