Rare opportunity to purchase an architecturally significant mid-century modern home in Wyomissing Borough. This spectacular mid-century modern design was the work of the Muhlenberg Brothers architecture firm in 1957. This 2 bedroom, 3.5 bath home has the qualities of a modern classic, with a light-filled interior that seamlessly connects to its beautiful outdoor setting. The scale of this elegant home is ideal for entertaining with its grand spaces, but also has an understated, intimate feel. Original architect-designed details have been preserved and maintained, including warm wood paneling, custom cabinetry and hardware, sliding wood panel doors allowing for a flexible design, and original recessed window treatments. Dramatic walls of windows craft views to outdoor spaces where the natural aesthetic is enhanced by mature landscaping, reflecting pools, a koi pond, artful stone walls, and a modernist flagstone pavilion. The tan brick walls and grey stone floor of the front entry offer a visual and material contrast to the warm wood paneling throughout the home. The foyer flows into the spacious living room with custom shelving and a wall of glass which extends into the dining room and family room beyond. Original wood and glass panels can be moved along the ceiling rails to enclose the family room from the adjoining dining room and kitchen. The naturally lit kitchen with highly functional original layout and cabinetry is the heart of the house. Its East wall is an expanse of glass opening to the courtyard, facilitating views and al fresco dining. The private bedroom wing is separated from the public spaces of the home by a glass-walled den or sitting area. With a master bedroom overlooking the private courtyard, the master suite includes separate his and hers bathrooms, a private desk area with courtyard views, and large dressing room flooded with natural light. The guest bedroom and adjoining bathroom overlook the putting green, one of many thoughtfully designed outdoor areas. Even the laundry room enjoys dramatic floor-to-ceiling views of the outdoors. With ample closet space, numerous custom cabinets, and an oversized 2-car attached garage, the home offers storage options that allow for a clean, modern aesthetic. Located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Berks County, this home is steps from the Wyomissing Park System with its extensive trails and 350 acres of land along the the picturesque Wyomissing Creek. Only one mile to the Reading Museum, Neag Planetarium, parks, tennis courts, pool, Wyomissing Public Library, and Reading Hospital.
