Welcome to 435 Arden Road, a Robert McElroy-inspired mid-century home featuring a dynamic roof line, walls of glass and vaulted ceilings nestled into a lush, wooded landscape. Floor-to-ceiling windows define the home, offering splendid views of the surrounding woods. An enclosed greenhouse and a sweeping front deck lets you enjoy the surroundings al fresco. The upstairs main living area follows a classic open plan, with living and family rooms that flow seamlessly into each other with a center brick fireplace with built-in bookshelves that unite the two. The asymmetrical vaulted ceiling with dramatic wood paneling stands in stark contrast to the windows which integrate with nature. All of the rooms have multiple outdoor views, or multiple access points, encouraging an appreciation of healthy living. Partial walls of varying heights create different depths in the space and a pass-through window from the living room offers a view into the kitchen. Both the kitchen and living room feature sliders allowing the outside in and light to enter rooms from multiple angles. The large expanses of glass are used to break down the interior spaces from the exterior spaces and allow the home's interior to seamlessly connect to its verdant surroundings. Next to the kitchen, the sun-drenched dining room with sputnik light fixture is spacious and begs for a large dinner party. Across the hall is the gracious Master Suite. Its bathroom features vintage tile and a separate water closet. The lower level features two bedrooms with new wall-to-wall carpeting, a vintage tiled bath, laundry room and access to the two car garage with a workshop and additional storage. Other upgrades to the home include fresh paint and carpet throughout, new vinyl flooring in the kitchen, new pavers, 3-year-young central air and furnace and a new roof. A clean, minimalist aesthetic, an emphasis on bringing the outdoors in and the presence of angular structures are the hallmarks of this home with a nearly equal emphasis on function and form.
