April 14, 2013Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Golden Valley, MN
Hey there, everyone. I have to admit that I never thought it would be so hard to write a post about such a beautiful house. Here on NPR we’ve gone back and forth a lot on whether or not to continue this feature after Jan’s passing. In the end, we decided that we didn’t think Jan would want anyone to stop appreciating mid-century homes ever, and so we will be continuing Won’t You Be My Neighbor as a tribute to both mid-century architecture and to Jan.
And in that spirit, we have Anthony to thank for giving us a head’s up on this amazing home. Thanks, Anthony!
I am going to call this one escutcheon paradise because…well…you’ll see.
This home is located at 1875 Kyle Place in Golden Valley, MN. It is for sale here through Coldwell Banker, and the asking price is a whopping $1,250,000. Whew. Apparently this week we are heading into dream house territory!
Here is the description from the listing:
Mad Men Perfection! One of a kind, 1961 modern masterpiece set upon 1.4 acres on Sweeney Lake. Very private w/ towering trees and 150′ lakeshore. Expansive lake views from both levels, this home has been perfectly preserved, & is 5 min from downtown.
Look at the double doors with starburst escutcheons! Wow.
This gorgeous house has four bedrooms, two full baths, two partial baths and is about 4100 square feet.
Oh, and this amazing entryway!!
