Mid-century modern happy place

Written by: Peg Ashbrock

Covington homeowners Fritz and Judith Kuhlman believe serendipity was involved in finding their gem of a home eleven years ago. Looking at the Florida-style ranch wasn’t really in their plans when they saw a realtor
putting a For Sale sign in the front yard. On a whim they decided to look at the home that provided views of a nearby park. Built in 1955, the house had been built by the owner, a builder and WWII combat engineer who also built four other homes on their cul-de-sac.

“We’re lucky that the builder of the house wasn’t interested in building a run-of-the-mill ranch home,” explains Judith. “He obviously had studied architects like Frank Lloyd Wright,” agrees Fritz. “He had good instincts and without professional training just gave himself the freedom to mess around with it.”
