John Yeon architecture in Bloomington! Known by friends and Bloomington architecture lovers as "The Atomic House," This 1955 two-owner beauty is a recreation of a 1938 Portland Oregon home by renowned architect John Yeon (right from the pages of a 1947 House Beautiful Magazine). Current owner/designer has created an amazing front porch and limestone feature wall. With tasteful updates (master bath, 5-CAR GARAGE and brand new kitchen), this represents Bloomington's finest example of Mid Century Modern. The quality of construction by both owners is obvious throughout the home. Built by two nuclear physicists (and one's wife) that worked on the Manhattan Project (sandwiched by long careers with I.U.), this home is an amazing period piece with finishes and original features to marvel at in every room. You'll find walls and ceilings made of hardwood flooring, built-in cubbies, filing cabinets, many original fixtures, (some original furniture goes with the house), limestone fireplace, and perhaps the highlight of these mid-century conversation pieces: the built-in "mycarta" dining room table that doubles as a kitchen counter and slides between the two rooms. Quartz counters and stainless appliances bring the brand-new kitchen into modern times but still "of the era." This light filled 3,000 sq. ft. 4bd (w study), 3ba, 2-Car (plus 3-car connected garage), is situated on a private .36ac lot 6 blocks South of campus near Bryan Park is in fantastic cosmetic and mechanical condition. The HVAC, extensive electrical and plumbing have all been replaced in the last 5-12 yrs and a huge investment in hardscape has been made (retaining walls, driveway, sidewalks, limestone vaneers, underground water drainage and landscaping. The master suite has modern updates with its Jacuzzi tub and high-end fixtures 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 inf
