Love windows? Check out this light-filled two-bedroom, two-bath home in Monterey, California. The midcentury modern structure was first constructed as a 500-square-foot studio in 1950. Used as an artist’s retreat, the design featured a loft-style window that faced north to minimize shadows as the artist worked.
Two years later a separate bedroom was added—mimicking the studio’s dramatic roof lines and geometric windows—and in 1990 the owners kept building with a separate 550-square-foot guest house. Eventually both houses were connected by a spacious gallery (check out those clerestory windows) to make a 1,576-square-foot, two-bedroom home.
Recent renovations have made the living spaces feel seamless, decked out in exposed white beams and gray walls. The original artist studio is now the living room, and throughout the home the triangle and square-shaped windows take center stage. Located on Huckleberry Hill, 2300 Prescott Avenue is on the market now for $865,000.
