Located on Pomeroy Road and built in 1949 for the Pomeroy Family, this midcentury-modern gem in Rosswas built just as the architectural style began to unfold.

The single-story house at 10 Pomeroy Road, designed by Clarence W. W. Mayhew, features floor-to-ceiling windows, an open-air atrium, gorgeous wood bas relief in the formal dining room, and more.

A member of the Pomeroy family tells Curbed SF that the engraved bas relief was created by Ed Quigley.

It also comes with a huge lawn, old growth trees, a garden, outdoor pathways, and a contemporary deck.

Some of the interiors could be refreshed to bring out more of the home’s midcentury aura. For example, the tile floor could be ripped out and replaced with something better. (This terracotta-esque tile seems to be prevalent in many ’70s-’80s midcentury renovations.)

Asking is $4,995,000.
