Location: Clifton, New Jersey
This cool midcentury modern home in Clifton, New Jersey, was designed by local architect Arthur Rigolo in 1952 and has since been restored and updated.
Measuring 2,700 square feet, the split-level home features a dynamic layout that includes an open-plan living area with a massive brick fireplace and built-in reading nook and shelving, which then flows into a dining area and large kitchen. An open-tread staircase leads downstairs to where a cozy family room—also with a brick fireplace—and an office nook reside.
Natural materials and many original architectural elements are found throughout the bright house, including cork floors in the family room, the aforementioned heartwood, redwood, and birch paneling and built-ins, and brick wall accents.
Outside, the nearly half-acre site includes verdant lawns, brick patios, screened in porch, and a shed. An oversized carport marks the entrance to the dwelling, whose facade is characterized by red-painted siding and brick. Located at 56 Woodlawn Avenue, the home is offered at $719,000.
