In a quest to build quality housing for everyday people, architect Gregory Ain, FAIA, created a community called Parked Planned Homes in 1947. These twenty-eight residences are renowned for their Mid-Century Modern aesthetic, visionary planning and construction.
2805 Highview Avenue is in near-original condition and presents a rare opportunity to own one of these architecturally significant properties. Its open floor plan offers three bedrooms, one and three-quarter baths and ample natural light. The kitchen and adjacent dining area open onto a walled courtyard. This private outdoor space provides an ideal setting for dining and entertaining. The living room, with a twenty-four foot wall of glass and clerestory windows, faces the lushly landscaped back garden. Recent updates include copper plumbing and polished concrete floors.
Here is a fabulous example of design that is still quite Modern today.
