Very Cool Red Warner Ranch For Sale – With Furniture!

OutsideWow.  Do you want a super cute house AND furniture!  Then this house is the house for you.  It was designed by Red Warner, who designed houses in the style of Alden B. Dow (a big deal around here) and Frank Lloyd Wright. Everyone around here goes crazy for these.  And this one is unique in my opinion because it is very affordable.  At $145,000, it is the least expensive Red Warner I have ever seen.

In any case, what cute curb appeal.  I love the yard. The colors used on the outside are great, too. Love how that tan looks with the green.


This is a pretty sweet living room.  Oh, and according to the listing, that is a Dunbar sofa and Paul McCobb Directional side chairs. Love them! Adore them!

Living Room

Uh! Love that veiw. And the Knoll chairs are pretty sweet too. Those are also for sale!

Three Season

The kitchen looks like it has the original cabinets.  Too bad the appliances were “updated” in ’88. And a shot of the floor would be nice!  Since it isn’t in the picture, I am assuming that is original, too.


Ahhh….I love original bathrooms!  That sink is great.


One of the bedrooms.  More Knoll chairs and some fir built-ins.  Sooooooooo pretty.  Bedroom

Well, head on over to the site and check out the rest of the pictures!  They are pretty sweet!  Hope you all are having a good Friday!

    I grew up in a Red Warner home in Midland Michigan. It had 3 levels: Main floor, upstairs, downstairs, and a basement. There were redwood celings, upper gardens and 2 story windows in the entrance. I have tried to find out more info on Red Warner with NO luck. The home you are showing is similar to the one I grew up in, but much smaller. So nice to see it!!

She loves retro, as we all do here. PLEASE email her at nopatternrequired@hotmail.com and give her the scoop on all your Warner houses there in Midland – we would all surely LOVE to hear everything we can about them.

    Hi Leslie!

    Yup, this is my blog, as Sara mentioned above, and I do all the posting! I am so excited to have you visit my blog. When we purchased our house, we toured a ton of you and your Dad’s houses that were for sale, and they were all beautiful. And I think a friend of mine lives in your old house (I love the dining room in that house!).

    Any information or pictures you want to share would be greatly appreciated! I am glad you found the blog!

    I just bought a Red Warner home on James Dr. in Midland that will be my retirement home. It is a smaller, simpler version of the home above. I grew up in Midland and always wanted to live in a Dow/Warner/Schwartz designed home. Red Warner was one of the owners of the Holiday Inn, I worked there in the late sixties and knew him somewhat. I am interested in knowing the exact stain color used on the interior wood of his homes, and who was the manufacturer of the windows used in Mr. Warner’s homes.

      Hi Jim –
      There is a new Mid-Century Architecture enthusiast group in Midland: https://www.facebook.com/midcenturymodernmidland/ I bet they would have the answer to your question. And they would probably be very happy if you joined up as well and told your fun story! Thanks!
