This David Osler-designed house in Ann Arbor is a mid-century oasis — and it’s not on the market yet


Oh, how we want nothing more than to drink a Manhattan while cutting a rug on an actual rug to a Françoise Hardy record in this incredible David Osler-designed home in Ann Arbor — which hits the market in May.

A minimalist masterpiece, this 3-bed, 3-bath, 3,029 square-foot mid-century oasis is listed for $850,000. Erected in 1964, the home sits on a .70 acre lot and was designed to coexist with nature, which might explain why the property is preciously tucked into lush fauna and perennial gardens, with walls of floor to ceiling windows and door walls, which give access to the wrap-around deck from every room.

Skylights, built-in shelving, a custom mahogany buffet with china cabinet, and galley kitchen with breakfast area are among some of the home's many standout period features. The first floor is home to the master suite, which offers garden views, and a second bedroom, while the third bedroom/study can be found on the lower level, along with laundry, storage, and garage access.

This home is listed by Elizabeth Brien of Charles Reinhart Realtors.
