Located in Charlottesville, Virginia, this three-bedroom, three-bath home boasts an impressive architecture pedigree. The building was designed and constructed in 1952 by prolific American architect Edward Durell Stone. Most famous for designing Radio City Music Hall and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, as well as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., Stone spent much of the late 1940s and early 1950s designing single-family homes.

The 2,920-square-foot glass and brick building sits on just under an acre, features an overhanging roof, and takes advantage of southern exposure with a long set of windows. The one-story building was recently renovated in 2017 with careful consideration for Stone’s design. New cork flooring replaced the original cork flooring, and the focus was on keeping the home light and airy.

The living room boasts built-in shelving and windows on both sides; an interior courtyard features brick and glass walls. The all-white kitchen provides views to the yard, while a cozy office features built-in shelving and intricate wood inlays. Bedrooms also look out onto the courtyard, and the master bedroom boasts another fireplace.

If horizontal lines and walls of glass speak to you, 2020 Spottswood Road is on the market now for $1,495,000.
