Another by the same hand.

Somewhat grander, with an even paler brick. The very nice living room is seen only briefly, at 2:15 and 2:50; kitchen is newer.

The first house is better. At $249K, $91/sf, it is a good buy.

Quite tasteful and not blatantly derivative. Didn't know of Hallet, thanks for posting an "unsung hero"!

The living room is better seen at the 0:30 mark.

I found this house to be quite interesting....in the fact that the main living space has no fireplace. I'd been wondering for awhile now what a classic "Wrightian" living space might look like without a hearth. This house gives me at least an idea. (However, there is a fireplace in the sunken den, which appears to be visible from the main living space, if looking down the stairwell... Surely that's not by accident... Also makes you wonder what the original den looked like; was it designed with an aesthetic continuation from the main living area?)

On top of this house being a good value, Midland is filled with mid-century modern homes. Most of them were built by Alden Dow and his associates.

Midland is a very nice mid-size town of about 40,000+ population. Many of the town's civic buildings, (library, museum, college campus, etc.) were designed by Alden Dow. Midland is also the home of Dow Chemical.

Readers will have noticed that Mr Hallett worked for Dow before going it alone in Midland.

Nice, no ? One wishes for more exterior views---but what is seen in delicious.

I can imagine wanting to replace the shingles with another appropriate cladding, eventually; copper, perhaps, or more likely lapped or butted-and-flashed horizontal boards ?

Does anyone make a formed continuous self-flashed exterior siding hanger like this ? I see it in copper or bronze, or maybe as an extrusion . . .
