Fronted by tall maple trees, this spectacular midcentury modern home in View Park was built in 1962 and appears to have been lovingly maintained in the years since then.

The house was designed by accomplished residential architect Charles Wong, one of many modernists who incorporated Japanese-style details into the minimalistic post and beam residences popular at the time.

Featuring three bedrooms and four bathrooms, the sprawling home has 3,593 square feet of living space. Interior features include gleaming wood floors, walls of glass, planked ceilings, sunken gardens, and built-in cabinetry with paper-lined doors. The open living room is framed around a large fireplace and flows into the dining room and updated kitchen.

Long decks line the side of the house and merge smoothly with interior space, separated only by sliding glass doors.

The house sits on a 10,778-square-foot lot with a neatly landscaped yard and an attached two-car garage. It’s being sold through the plumBid auction system, and bidding starts at $1.099 million.

The house sits on a spacious lot with neatly trimmed gardens.

The open living space has planked ceilings and sunken gardens.
The renovated kitchen has stainless steel appliances and a large center island.
An office opens to the home’s long side deck.
Glass walls and clerestory windows can be found throughout the home.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the home’s architect in the subheading. The designer is Charles Wong.
