33 Farragut, Piedmont

Today we feature another exceptional mid-century home, this time in Piedmont proper. There is no mention of who the architect might be, but this home is certainly thoughtfully designed. Outside there is a wonderful layering of roof planes at right angles to each other with the door and massive chimney at the juncture. The roof rafters and fascia protrude out beyond the edge of the roof leaving a skylight of sorts around the perimeter of the building. Inside the spaces are large and filled with light from the oversized windows. There is a nice combination of original materials and details including an interesting copper-capped corner fireplace with inglenook adjacent.

Any guesses on the architect? It has some details in common with a home we represented the buyer on last year. That house was by Marv Gunderson, but I do not know that he built any homes in Piedmont. Any other suggestions?
