Midcentury ranch-style homes abound in the University Hills-Windsor Park area and surrounding neighborhoods—not surprising, since both areas were developed in the 1950a and 1960s. This one-story, brick house in University Hills stands out among them, because of both the slope of its gabled roof and the interior remodel, which shows a fairly light touch and keeps the home’s mid-60s spirit alive.

Built in 1965, the 1,734-square-foot home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms and features acacia wood floors, recessed lighting, a fireplace, updated kitchens and bathrooms, and vaulted, beamed ceilings. It also has an especially large, fenced backyard with two small patios and lots of potential.

The asking price for the home, which is listed by Uptown Realty, has dropped $35,000 since it was placed on the market in July.
