Known as The Captain’s House, this mid-century gem was built by noted architect Roy Johnson and gets its name from its protruding glass “bow” and “stern.” The vintage abode is airy and bright, with the bring-the-outdoors-in feeling essential to Mid-Century Modern homes.
Stylish décor and fixtures are present throughout the rooms, and the exterior includes an ample yard and patio, plus an outdoor movie screen. Added bonus: a separate two-car garage, which is unusual for homes of this age.
Embrace the Mid-Century Modern vibe. Updating the home to any other style would require major renovations. Buyers seeking traditional flooring may be turned off by the natural stone floors throughout.
