“A hillside design providing for adult living on the upper level, with a sweeping deck for outdoor enjoyment, and a lower level for the youngsters’ activities,” the original brochure says. “The master bedroom can be placed downstairs, and the upper bedroom can be used as a guest room-study, if desired.”

With walls of double-pane glass and large wraparound deck, the wood-and-brick clad house blends inside and out, connecting the interior space to the nature of the lot, which backs up to Little Paint Branch Park and trail.
