Classic 1958 modern home designed by architect Arthur L Miller with an open floor plan and set on almost 3 acres.  The walls of windows in the living room, family room and office enhance the strong indoor-outdoor connection to the private outdoor rooms and additional acreage.  Dramatic interior and exterior stonework, originally quarried from the site, give the home a very warm and solid feel.



 





Some of the early 20th century modern architects drew upon the concepts of the indoor/outdoor connection of traditional Japanese homes, similar to what is achieved in this home built in the 1960's.

LINK TO the work of the Mitchell/Giurgola firm

The Mitchell Residence is one of the best examples of mid-century residential architecture in the region, combining grand spaces with an intimate overall scale. This house incorporates the Philadelphia mid-century trademark use of stone and walls of glass in a perfect blend, giving the home a feeling of substance, yet open to the outdoors.
