Built in the 1950s, this one-story home features many of the trademarks of its midcentury lineage—as do most of its neighbors in Allandale, as the former dairy farm was developed as a then-suburban subdivision in the 1940s and 1950s.
The redesign does an excellent job of keeping the home’s original bones intact (the front of the house in particular is faithful to the original spirit). Interiors, however and been stripped down and updated in a style that drifts fairly far from midcentury modern. The new, contemporary materials are stylish and subtle, and there are a few touches—such as the handmade barn doors in the master bathroom—that stand out. If the neutral palette doesn’t suit the buyer, adding color with paint, furniture, and decor is a pretty easy fix.
The 1,808-square-foot home has an open floorplan and wood floors throughout the main living areas and bedrooms. The features waterfall quartz countertops, custom cabinetry, an eat-in bar, and a large pantry.
The home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite has a roomy walk-in closet; built-ins; the aforementioned handcrafted barn door accent; an oversized, walk-in glass shower; and a dual vanity.
Large windows and doors in the main living area open to a fences, landscaped yard and outdoor living area, and there’s an automatic-entry garage with an additional storage room to boot.
