- Deftly demonstrating a diverse range of influences - from Bruce Goff to Mies Van de Rohe - the Barthel residence makes an exuberant architectural culmination to the 1950s. In a neighborhood of fine Mid-century Modern homes, this architect John Barthel-designed home with a geometric angular folded roof stands out. From the outside, this captivating design features a minimally detailed carport and covered patio pass beneath the aerial intersection of the roof planes.
- The interior remains just as the architect perfectly designed it. The front entry announces that the interior is also a work of art with the mural room divider painted by the architect. Other original paintings and works of art done by the architect can be found throughout the house. The kitchen and dining room are at the heart of the home and open to the elegantly minimalist covered dining patio. The large great room with it's soaring ceilings, brick fireplace and windows that wrap around each of the four corners creates an impressive interior space with peaceful views of the gardens. The bedrooms and bathrooms with original mosaic tiles occupy the matching wing of the house. Never offered on the market before, the architect designed this home for himself and has been the only owner.
