The Architect Leo Peiffer built the house for himself in 1963 bringing his mid century modern principles to a Midwestern environment.
The structure of the building is made of interlinked cubic volumes on a one-acre big lot with a challenging drop from front to back.
This mid century modern beauty includes an upper level consisting of a rectangular living space and dining area overlooking a tree-filled view through a big glass wall. At the same level are the bedrooms with glass doors and the kitchen communicating with an also glass-surrounded patio.
The walnut staircase brings down to the ground-level where other bedrooms and the more private rooms are.
Of course the interiors were carefully chosen to respect the mid century modern aesthetic of the period using red tones to complement the green landscape enjoyable from the numerous floor to ceiling glass walls and windows.
