The Balogh House in Plymouth, built in 1958-1959 and designed by Michigan architect Tivadar Balogh, is for sale. This is the first time the house is leaving family ownership. The asking price is $750,000.
Balogh designed the house for himself and his family. He was a professor at the University of Michigan’s College of Architecture, and the design rendering of the home won a Progressive Architecture Award in 1957 before it was built. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in September 2013.
The 1,905-square-foot house includes two bedrooms and a loft upstairs. It features high-ceilinged living spaces, two bathrooms and a half bath, and sits on a wooded 2.7-acre lot.
The home is clad in redwood, features a cube form, and appears to hover above the ground — there’s a partial basement on one side and support posts on the other.
The home is listed by John Goetz of Real Estate One. There will be an open house from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13, along with an event for members of the American Institute of Architects.
More information and a virtual tour of the house are available here.
