This house’s extra-wide brick fireplace wasn’t just unusual for its size, but also for its shape.
Rather than a typical horizontal edge across the top of the opening, or even instead of an arch shape, this home had a low-peaked triangle on its living room fireplace.
Even more interesting was the fact that the angle seen here — about 150 degrees — was a motif used throughout this home, and was seen pointing both up and down.
That specific shape was found on the roofline and exposed wooden ceilings, window frames, doorways, privacy shutters — even in the repeated angles of the dining table.
Still, we think that the triangular fireplace shown here, constructed of brick with a rustic whitewashed painted finish, was the best feature of this 1960s home.
