Mid-century artist’s studio turned home asks Monterrey for $ 865,000


Do you like windows? Check out this bright two-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Monterey, California. The mid-century modern structure was first built as a 500-square-foot studio in 1950. Used as an artist’s retreat, the design featured a north-facing loft-style window to minimize shadows while the artist was working.

Two years later, a separate bedroom was added – mimicking the studio’s dramatic roof lines and geometric windows – and in 1990 the owners continued to build with a separate 550-square-foot guesthouse. Eventually the two homes were connected by a spacious gallery (look at those skylight windows) to form a two-bedroom, 1,576 square foot home.

Recent renovations have made the living spaces homogeneous, adorned with exposed white beams and gray walls. The original artist’s studio is now the living room, and throughout the house, triangular and square windows take center stage. Located on Huckleberry Hill, 2300 Prescott Avenue is currently on the market for $ 865,000.

The home’s current living room is comprised of the property’s original 500-square-foot artist’s studio.

An open plan kitchen and dining area has two red chairs and a small wooden dining table.

Adjacent to the living room is an open concept kitchen and a small dining area.
