Texas native O?Neil Ford was considered a leading architect of the American Southwest, and was appointed to the National Council on the Arts by President Lyndon B. Johnson. He is also the only person to have been given the designation of National Historic Landmark.
Now, a beautifully maintained Ford-designed midcentury modern home has come on the market in San Antonio, Texas. Measuring 3,108 square feet, the four-bedroom features many architectural elements of the period including a flat roof with deep overhangs, clean lines, plenty of windows, and a flowing open-plan layout.
Other details include stone walls, tiled floors in the common areas and hardwood in the bedrooms, and handsome wooden built-ins and paneled ceilings that work to create warm, inviting interiors. A formal dining, separate study, three bathrooms, updated kitchen (both of which could frankly use a refresh), deck, and patio round out the space.
Located at 151 Thelma in Olmos Park, the home is offered at $1,275,000.
