When it comes to unconventional architecture, it’s hard to top Mount Washington, where you’ll find geodesic domes, homes made of corrugated metal or Arroyo stones, and a number of A-frames, including this peaked property at 371 Mavis Drive.
Built in 1965, the 1,605-feet residence has been recently overhauled by architect Roberto Sheinberg, design director of Lehrer Architects. It sports a modern kitchen, updated bathrooms (there are one and a half), and new plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. Other features include hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, a gas fireplace, built-in shelving, and expansive walls of glass framing dramatic mountain and city views.
Along with the three-bedroom main house, the 9,164-square-foot lot holds two additional detached structures, one of which is used now as a studio, office, and den, while the other, per the listing, “would made a perfect recording studio or guest house.” There are also two garages.
Last sold in 2017 for $1.035 million, the compound property is now asking $1.375 million. Scott King of Deasy Penner Podley has the listing.
