This Upper Arlington house is the ultimate Columbus area mid-century mod house. Here’s why.
- Built in 1952 by notable architect Noverre Musson
- Main living floor is completely open because of a unique free-span beam design
- Extensive use of natural organic materials like stone and wood
- All main floor rooms open to the outdoors
Noverre Musson not only built this home, and he also lived in and built this unique Bexley home:
Many more photos of the Bexley house can be found here – I bring it up because it’s also a fantastic house and worth your time.
But let’s get back to the Upper Arlington home. The entire main living level is a free-span beam design, which, in layman’s terms, means the ultimate open floorplan. Musson used glass, stone, and wood to bring all of the most important elements of mid-century modern esthetic to life.
On the whole, the home is very peaceful and tranquil, offering plenty of spots to chill out and unwind after a stressful day. Originally a four-bedroom home, the house has been reworked to include a three-room owner’s suite with a den, walk-in closet, and stunning marble bath.
The home isn’t currently on the market, but it most recently sold for $1,050,000 in December 2018. If you’d like to take a look inside, you can click here.
