The midcentury reawakening shows no signs of settling back down, for better or for worse. Homebuyers will still fork over big bucks for the clean, thoughtful-yet-restrained look of these prized homes.
Here’s one that’s sure to turn a few heads: Featuring two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,370 square feet, 71 Fairlawn Drive has been well preserved since making its 1951 debut. The original paneled walls, box-beams and wood-paneled ceilings, and globe lighting are here and remain in lovely condition. The fretwork screen in the bathroom is a treat. And the shingled facade, which might give one pause for concern on lesser abodes, works well here.
New additions include kitchen updates and windows. The yard has also been given a contemporary twist with Japanese maples and drought-resistant plants.
Asking is $879,000.
