For some, a house is purchased to create a family home, for others a home is purchased to create and support a lifestyle. Each year since the middle of the 20th century (i.e., mid-century), the Home Builders Association hosts the annual Parade of Homes. This was, and still is, a time when custom and semi-custom builders showcase masterpieces introducing beautiful architectural features; attractive neighborhoods, and the latest home amenities. "See everything that was New in '62! in the Parade of Homes" when this home originally debuted. This truly custom home represents iconic mid-century Frank Lloyd Wright "Usonian" design as uniquely crafted by architect Lory Ice and appropriately named "Butterfly House" as you'll see when viewing the main floorplan. When you walk in the home you will immediately see the artistically crafted staircase that is a focal point in the home. The great room offers an "original open concept" floorplan creating amazing entertaining space with a deck that begs you to enjoy the beautiful views of the city lights. The freestanding fireplace adds both character and warmth and the space is large enough to fulfill unique needs for living and dining areas. The kitchen has been masterfully updated to maintain the original character of the home, yet bring in modern conveniences. The bedrooms offer custom designed curved walls that put an exclamation point on custom and mid-century. Heading down the staircase you'll find more living areas including an office area, recreation area, bathroom and a courtyard that is home to the hot tub. The back yard has ample space to entertain, grow your own fresh garden; and enjoy your own private outdoor al fresco oasis. Not only is this home a piece of art, but the location is ideal as you are minutes from being able to enjoy hiking on Green Mountain, get quickly to the mountains and downtown via 6th avenue, offering great amenities within minutes of your driveway. Live your best life at Butterfly House!
