If you love mid-century design and also the work of master architect Frank Lloyd Wright, this Texas home is the design mashup you've been waiting for. Take a look inside for yourself.
David Foster George, who lived to be 100, was a Texas-based architect who was a fan of the Craftsman style and studied under Wright at Taliesin West. George built this home in Irving, Texas in 1969, and while you can see the influence of the organic modern master, "David's synthesis of architecture, nature and people, along with his intelligence and God-given talent, inspired him to develop an architecture of his own," according to a tribute from the Fort Worth chapter of the AIA.
The 2,500 square foot, four bedroom, two bathroom home features a butterfly peaked roof that allows for dramatic vaulted ceilings on both sides, with exposed beams, walls of windows, and brick columns, fireplaces, and accents. Even the door and gate are notched—giving it a distinctly '60s vibe. The double height entry foyer is grand without being ostentatious. Another cool thing: Each of the bedrooms have oversized hexagonal windows (and built in closets).
While the interiors are mid-century, they don't veer into historical reproduction; the space feels on brand, but also updated. (Indeed, the kitchen and baths have seen renovations since 1969 with solid—if a bit boring—stainless appliances and granite counters.) A lot of the wood throughout the home is painted white, giving the space an airy feel.
The property also has landscaping, patio space and a two car garage.
The listing is held by Coldwell Banker and is currently asking $367,000.
