A Galindo home built in 1959 blends styles and retains its original essence

1106 Fieldcrest Drive
Via Compass

As the farther southern reaches of 78704 continue to heat up, a compelling little midcentury home in Dawson has popped up on the market. Built in 1959, it has a classic ranch-style, late-modern exterior with a low-angled roof line, a big picture window fronted by a small porch that extends to a carport.

Inside, the herringbone tile floors, soft-mod kitchen updates, and vaguely bohemian staging is confusing, though not unpleasant, at first, but the 1,443-square-foot home is still a cheery modern at its core—plus there’s still some nicely kept vintage tile in one of the bathrooms.

The one-story, brick and frame house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms total, with a laundry and bonus room off the kitchen. The roomy, fence backyard features an attached deck, some large trees, and a storage building. There’s fresh-looking landscaping in front and tidy pathways all around.

The listing for the home at 1106 Fieldcrest Drive is held by Austin Stowell at Compass.
