Larry Booth's Modernist Old Town Crib Sells For $1.795M

New, 2 comments

Heck yeah! We're pretty jazzed to see one of our favorite contemporary homes sell for a very healthy amount. This Larry Booth-designed Old Town Triangle home was put on the market last September by another notable architect, Dirk Lohan, grandson of Mies van der Rohe. He held fast to a $1.95M ask for several months, but ended up with $1.795M. The lumbering yet beautiful 1978 three-bed has 4,000 square feet of blisteringly white interiors with great flow, a central spiral staircase, minimalist fireplace, huge kitchen, and lots of nooks and crannies including an elegant courtyard. The home's inward-orientation gives it a private, secretive presence in an area of jaunty old frame homes. Lohan should be credited with expanding and accentuating the original work of Booth, and now he's free to move on to new projects.
