An award-winning home that was added to the National Register of Historic in 2013 is for sale for the first time ever.
The Balogh House in Plymouth, designed by architect Tivadar Balogh for his family in 1958, won the Progressive Architecture award the same year. According to Michigan Modern, it cost just $32,000 to build, in large part because the Baloghs did a lot of the construction work themselves.
It’s a stunning example of midcentury modern architecture. Nicknamed the ‘Cube,’ the home looks much bigger than its 1,905 square feet thanks to its expansive, covered outdoor living space. That and other features, like the skylights and wood siding, beautifully integrate it with the surrounding nature.
Inside, the home is tastefully filled with midcentury furniture matching the geometrical lines, shapes, and clean surfaces typical of the style. Landings and windows admit views of the home’s various levels and open floor plan.
There’s no other way to say it: The home is stunning in every way. We could write a lot more about the two-bedroom residence, so just take a look at the photos for yourself.
49800 Joy Road is listed with John A. Goetz of Real Estate One for $750,000.
