Friday Five Hundred: Revamped Midcentury Modern With Gorgeous Pool on Better Drive is The Best

Published November 2, 2012 by Joanna England

Everything is better about this home at 10239 Better Dr. Why? Because it was taken to the studs a few years ago by an owner with vision. They kept the modern soul of this Midcentury Modern home built in 1953, but brought it into 21st century, making it worth the $599,000 asking price, in my honest opinion.

The interiors are cool and modern, but not cold. I think that’s mostly thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows and patio doors paired with the slate tile throughout much of the living area. This is a modern home with lofty ceilings that is perfect for oversized furniture.

Here are the stats: You get three bedrooms, two and a half baths over 2,614 square feet and two garage spaces in this Midway Hills home. There are tons of upgrades in this house, and even the most discerning homeowner will fall in love with the finish-out.

The kitchen is beautiful and fits seamlessly with the rest of the home. Dark wood cabinets go perfectly with the stainless steel appliances and Silestone counters. It’s a balance and contrast with high-end appliances such as a SubZero fridge and a Viking stove. I am in love!

The master bedroom looks to the backyard with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. If you’re a bit shy and you’re thinking of putting in blinds or window treatments, this is not the house for you.

 

The master baths is gorgeous, too, with an angular tub and beautiful double vanities. Check out the shower, too! This is a home for a true lover of the contemporary.

The pool, well, it’s the real eye-catcher. This is not any ordinary concrete hole in the ground, as the lush lawn edges right up to this rectangular oasis. There is an additional courtyard patio in the front of the home that is perfect for entertaining.
