Architect Warren Heid designed the 'modern' masterpiece, positioning walls of glass to face soothing view sheds of a spacious, shaded lot.

In its place, Heid designed a modern home masterpiece, positioning walls of glass to face soothing view sheds of the spacious, shaded lot. All five bedrooms have their own sliders and private lanais.

"I think the layout works very well for today's living," says McCafferty, citing in particular the space buffering the bedrooms and the potential for easy improvements. The sizeable backyard is "very useable," she said, noting, "If you wanted to build an au pair unit or a pool, you could."

The realtor said not much has been done to the house in its half-century-plus, which suggests some improvements may be desired because, "It's original from 1966, so…I think you'd want to update the kitchens and bathrooms."

Likewise, with extra space surrounding the master bedroom, she said, "I think today's owner would probably want a walk-in closet and a luxury bath."

If you're going to be the one who considers making these changes, however, you may have to move fast. The sparkling design and walkable proximity of the neighborhood to Saratoga'a charming downtown drew numerous inquiries by the day after it was listed.

"I'm [scheduling] a lot of showings," McCafferty said happily, attributing the listing's popularity to several factors including the design style: "It's a true mid-century modern."

"It's Saratoga," she added of the community's desirability. "Very rarely would you find a house [here] with this much square footage."
