Open House Obsession: A Mid-Century Post+Beam Ready For The 21st Century, $1.4MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 19 Hemlock Lane, Montclair Hills/Oakland
When: Sunday, September 30, 2:00pm-5:00pm
What: A sophisticated reinvention of a Mid-Century home by architects Megan Carter of CB Design and Bridgette Shank of Timbre Architecture, this 3-bed, 2.5-bath home brings a new environmental sensitivity to a Post+Beam classic. The astounding views don’t hurt, either.
It Takes A Village: Completely upgraded seismically and with new systems, a complex project like this calls for an expert team. Guided by the architects, structural engineering was done by Sheerline Engineering, geotechnical engineering by Geotecnia, with MK Construction as general contractor. Staging by Trybe Collective.
What We Love: No part of of the house, visible or invisible, remains untouched, but it retains its warm, fundamentally ’60s spirit. It’s also the perfect venue for a collection of Mid-Century furniture and objects.
Two bedrooms and the master suite occupy the lower level.
