The Allandale neighborhood, as well as a few of the ones around it, is known for its midcentury modern homes; according to Mad for Midcentury, 1964 is the median year for homes built in the area.
This home, built in 1953, shows hallmarks of the style, particularly on the exterior, street-facing side, with its flat roof and large windows. There are some original looking features inside, as well, the mint-green ceramic kitchen tile, the kitchen cabinets, and the wooden floors being prime suspects.
The landscaping, front and back, also has a modern feel that suits the home, with a tendency toward emphasis on lines and simplicity rather than a floral, cottage garden sort of bent.
Still, as the pictures reveal, the 1,619-square-foot, one-story brick home has been adapted in ways that make it work with a variety of styles, which change from room to room.
The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as custom lighting, stainless appliances, updated Silestone counters, crown molding, a clawfoot bathtub, and an updated master suite with new carpet and oversized walk-in closets, separate tub and shower, double vanities, and custom cabinets.
