Midcentury Home With Just the Right Amount of Updating Asks $1.46M

Rollingwood house blends best of 1965 and 2016 with restrained remodel

Most midcentury updates do away with features that might hint of heading into the 1970s: wood paneling, wall-covering white brick fireplaces with built-in cabinets, original kitchen cabinetry, and (our current favorite) brick half-walls that do double duty as planters.

This 1965, 3,096-square-foot home—to which, once again, reliably interesting, mod-focused site CreedeFitch led us—does the opposite. Updates to the three-bedroom, three-bathroom house are spot-on, making it seem new, but not like it's actually 1965. It gets extra points for furniture and staging, too.

Adding to the nuclear-family appeal arre the .63 acre lot, two screened-in porches, front deck, private courtyard, back patio, dog run, two driveways, and arge storage/workshop space. This might be close to a dream house we can see people actually living in.
