An outstanding example of mid-century architectural bliss awaits in this home designed and built by nationally acclaimed architect Tician Papachristou. With a nod to streamlined Usonian and Japanese architecture, Papachristou designed this home to hug its topography with the gentle slope of the lot creating a lower-level garden. Known for creating Boulder’s iconic mid-century houses and collaborating with I. M. Pei to design the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Papachristou later joined forces with modernist Bauhaus master, Marcel Breuer, in New York.

Building materials of brick, wood and glass seamlessly harmonize into a perfect design that transitions the outside in. Original detail of paneled and brick walls, clerestory windows and brilliant ceiling design captivate the senses. A major renovation has modernized the space for daily living — including radiant heat throughout, a completely reimagined kitchen with luxury appliances, a primary suite with a private courtyard and two gas fireplaces. Control4 home automation for lighting, sound and security is an added amenity. Poised on a quiet corner in Cherry Point within ½ a mile from the Highland Canal, residents enjoy easy access to shopping and dining.
