1342 E Southdowns, Bloomington, IN 47401  

The quintessential "atomic house"! This 1955 version is an wonderful recreation of a 1938 Portland OR home built by renowned architect John Yeon and represents Bloomington's finest example of Mid Century Modern. Built for two physicist that worked on the Manhattan Project and then joined the Indiana Univ. faculty, this home is an amazing period piece-there are so many original features that remain! You'll find original wood walls, floors, and ceilings, the original kitchen and 2nd bath, a limestone fireplace, original fixtures and hardware, and many exceedingly clever built-ins highlighted by a sliding dining table that doubles as a kitchen counter and slides between the dining and kitchen spaces-you have to see it! This light filled 3,000 sqft 4bd(w study), 3ba, 5 car(yes 5 car!), is situated on a private .36ac lot South of campus near Bryan Park and is in fantastic mechanical condition. The roof, HVAC, electrical, plumbing are all new/updated and there's been extensive exterior work done w/ retaining walls, sidewalks, limestone accents, underground water routing, and landscaping. The master suite has had modern updates with its Jacuzzi tub and walk in tile shower-but its retro styled of course! Don't miss this amazing example of the past as it blends with modern functionality! **See attachments for specific information re: the original owners and the history of the home** http://portlandmodern.com/2014/12/about-john-yeon/
