Built in 1950, this 1,898-square-foot home in Rosedale has a more traditional, almost cabin-like look than is usually associated with the midcentury modern style. But it does have the feel and some of the features—including the front-door window cutout, some built-in shelving, wood floors, and the inevitable kitchen window that now looks into another room instead of over the backyard—that we associate with Atomic Age suburbia.
The three-bedroom, two bathroom home seems to have updated everything else, including kitchen cabinets, backsplashes, and counter space, in a way that blends well with its original era's style. The master suite has a private balcony overlooking the backyard, a clawfoot tub, double vanity, and separate shower.
The two-story home also appears to have an office space that could be a fourth bedroom. Best of all, out back (under very large shade trees), there's a studio/shed/workshop decked out in the colors and style of the main house. It's not a big thing, but it's a charming touch.
