A classic ranch-style/modern home originally built in 1956, this Crestview house has been updated in a way that dodges many of the pitfalls that hazard such renovations.
While the home has not been renovated in a way that particularly recalls its midcentury origins, it keeps the lines and essence of the era. Neither does it err on the other side of a too-precious redo; sometimes it seems like designers who don’t know what to do with a house simply strip everything down, paint everything white, and call it done.
Rather, the 1,825-square-foot house carries a feature of its exterior—a light-pink brick facade—and carries it through the house to give it enough character to standout without overwhelming homebuyers who want to bring their own styles to the party.
The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Existing windows and sliding doors, along with long, horizontal additions, flood the home with natural light
The open living space leads to a panoramic slider onto a rounded deck. Other current features include stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, LED lighting, soft-close cabinets, water efficient plumbing fixtures, and refinished, original hardwoods.
