At the height of the mid-century modern craze, an architect named Jules Gregory built a studio on 10 wooded acres between New York and Philadelphia.
He and his wife then camped out beside it to determine which way the windows of their new home should face, and Gregory rendered a classic 1960 mid-century modern home — except for the roof.
The lid is all about the wave — or in architectural parlance, the curvilinear.
The roof's center beam is actually straight, and it appears to have two cones rolling across it for a wavy effect throughout the home. "It's basic geometry but also part of the poetry of the house," said listing agent Dana Lansing of Kurfiss Sotheby's International Realty.
The property is listed for $729,000, which includes the acreage, the 1,200-square-foot studio — or guesthouse, with one bathroom — and the main, wavy house with its four bedrooms and two baths.
Looking this groovy has made the home a party magnet as well. "It has a lot of incredible vibes to it," Lansing said.
