Admiring from afar

Though my first home-buying experience was, to put it lightly, not at all pleasant, I've not yet given up hope on one day owning my very own perfect MCM gem.

No, I'm not in the market yet.  There's far too much going on in my life and the economy in general to consider another move at this point, but that doesn't mean that I can't wistfully page through the Zillow listings.

I've seen quite a few decent homes come and go, but this one in particular caught my eye.

Right in my price range, great schools, nice neighborhood, entryway garden, spacious yard, all original fixtures/kitchen/baths, A FREAKING BOOMERANG ROOFLINE...

Yeah, this place has just about everything, but it looks as if an offer was accepted last week.  Here's to hoping that the new owners appreciate Mid-Century Modern design, because if I see busted up vintage cabinets and tile sitting on the curb, man tears will be shed.


  1. Dude! Loving the original Birch kitchen cabs and that seafoam bathroom tile is sweet! Tons of Mid Century madness possibilities here!

  2. Great house! When the day comes to sell our 1927 bungalow this is exactly what I'll be looking for. It's probably just as well for the sake of the store and making money that I don't own this home. A lot less might be available for sale. :)

    1. Oh Puuleezz A Mod!!! Nature hates a void...and so do we! You'd have that joint stuffed with amazing finds and wishing (like the rest of us) for more space in no time!
