It’s hard to say if this home was originally going for modernist or ranch in terms of style—probably neither—but it has elements of both, updated for contemporary needs and tastes.

Built in 1956, it’s among the many homes of its type in Brentwood, the north-central neighborhood, built as a subdivision, that now boasts a location near revitalized retail and restaurants on North Lamar Boulevard and North Burnet Road.

The one-story, wood-frame home measures 1,497 square foot and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It has been renovated to the studs, as they say, with new utility systems, windows and doors, paint and siding, an on-demand water heater, roof, and insulation.

It has an open floor plan and features a kitchen with custom cabinets, quartz countertops, an island, vaulted ceilings, and stainless steel appliances. It has hardwood floors throughout, as well as a screened-in porch, a fenced backyard, and a covered carport.

The house features high ceilings, French doors and recessed lighting, and the master bathroom has a double vanity, a full bathtub, and a walk-in shower.

The property includes fruit-bearing peach and olive trees.
