From the Agent: "Two eras of design merged to create this singular living space. On a prime stretch of Woodrow Wilson Drive, this 1961 post and beam by architect Perry Neuschatz is a modernist’s dream come true with its striking postmodern 1980 addition by noted architect Peter de Bretteville. The combination of these two accomplished architects and styles creates a one-of-a-kind environment that shines at every turn. Situated on two levels with open living spaces on both floors, this three-bedroom home feels spacious and well connected to the outdoors with walls of glass and an abundance of windows."
