This expansive mid-century modern home feels like it belongs in one of Joseph Eichler’s well known California neighborhoods rather than in the middle of highly desirable Homewood Hills!
185 Ashton Drive is a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom contemporary home reminiscent of Frank LLoyd Wright’s organic architecture finding harmony between structures and their environment. It is situated on a full acre lot sitting high on a hill with fabulous views. The angles and slopes fit into their surroundings seamlessly, bringing the indoors out, and the outdoors in. The architect designed matching cantilevered awnings built around a beautiful tulip poplar with a deck that connects these spaces together.
The bright red door makes a bold statement as you enter the home into the airy foyer open into the living room and dining room. The living room boasts sliding glass doors, a built in desk and shelves, a modern mirrored fireplace, and gleaming hardwood floors. This flows seamlessly into the dining area which features windows highlighting the twin awnings. The kitchen is spacious with plenty of cabinets and storage space including room for a dining area….a great space for entertaining! Beyond this common living area, there are a few steps down into a hallway with cork flooring with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The first bedroom is enormous with an en suite bathroom. The other three bedrooms share a hallway bathroom with original 1965 tiles, cabinetry, and countertops- truly fitting for this time period. One of the rooms has built in cabinets and desk perfect for an office. All these rooms have new energy efficient ductless Lennox mini-split heat pump/hvac units.
Beyond this is a two story wing that is currently the master suite and bonus room, easily converted to an in-law suite. The generously sized master bedroom is tucked away privately and has a built in desk and shelves, beamed ceilings, and two closets. The master bath features marble floors, double vanities, a large soaking tub, and a walk-in shower. The bonus room is enormous with a flagstone wood-burning fireplace, a wet bar, and built in book shelves and cabinets.
Outdoors, there is a deck with a pool and a brand new basketball court. The yard is partially fenced and is filled with delightful flowers and plants. This amazing home is a classic example of the mid-century modern and has so many original features that are rare to come by. This is an incredible value for a house of this size and quality.
