Swiss Miss style in New Hope, Pennsylvania

Midcentury modern homes might be best known for their butterfly
roofs and expansive windows, but the style also popularized the
Swiss Miss A-frame. With a peaked, chalet-inspired shape, the
made-for-Instagram A-frame is experiencing a resurgence in
popularity—there’s even an increasing number of A-frames
available for rent
.

And while you might expect A-frames in mountain towns or
midcentury hotbeds like California, check out
this three-bedroom, four-bath home
in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
Built in 1958 by noted midcentury architect Jules Gregory, the
low-lying home is bifurcated by a steep, dramatic A-frame roof that
rises straight from the ground.

Inside, the A-frame creates a dramatic double-height living room
with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the 1.42 acre
property. Recent renovations brought a more contemporary feel to
the space; gloss-black hardwood floors contrast with white walls,
beams, and counters. Other perks include a 16-foot island in the
kitchen, large closets, and a rear patio with bar, BBQ, fire pit,
and pool. Ready for your own midcentury masterpiece?
