As you turn down a tree-lined private drive, tucked away on a large lot, you will find this unique Mid-Century Modern style home. Custom designed in 1947 by the distinguished architectural firm, Higgins & Root, this house is a piece of San Jose history. Situated on almost half an acre of land, you will feel a sense of seclusion while maintaining the convenience of the city. The front entrance leads up to a cozy veranda, overlooking a beautifully landscaped yard, where you can soak up the peaceful scenery. Entering the house, you will enjoy the 1950s open floor plan, original wood floors, and a large wood-burning fireplace. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room enhance the solid Douglas Fir wood accent walls and the built-in bookcases. The bedroom has an iconic Mid-Century Modern room divider. There is also a formerly updated kitchen, a full bathroom, and a well-lit den. This property has never been listed, so don't miss your opportunity to own this remarkable home.
