This charming A-shaped house on a double lot is the first of its kind built by Wally Reemelin. Own this magnificent piece of history for $1.28 million.
Although he did not invent the A-frame himself, Reemelin was among the mid-century designers and builders who revived and elevated his position in the field of urban architecture. In the first half of the 20th century, modern architects shunned A-frames, seeing them as a European gimmick. “Say ‘A-frame’ and certain words come to mind, such as gingerbread, yodel, and sticky,” the Baltimore Sun wrote. But thanks in part to Reemelin, “the A-frame’s role in the history of American architecture extends far beyond its misguided reputation as a counterfeit Swiss chalet.”
