Mid-Century Modern Monday: Woo-hoo Wauwatosa!

We've written before about the late great John Randal McDonald, a Milwaukee-based architect whose use of natural materials in natural settings have led to comparisons with Frank Lloyd Wright (click here for some of his other works). Known as 'Longbow,' McDonald built this house in 1951 for a wealthy businessman named Gilbert Diehl in the town of Wauwatosa, just west of Milwaukee. The Prairie School design of wood, glass and stone has 4 beds/2.5 baths and 3700 square feet. Besides the 3 story great room and an indoor atrium, there are serene views of the surrounding trees from every room (you're on a dead end street, next to the Blue Mounds country club), along with a balcony, patio, walkways and your own private pond. $549.5K moves you in—whadya say?
