Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Gorgeous Mid-Century Modern in Saginaw

So, a lot of interesting houses for sale this week, but not many in my hometown of Midland.  I ended up going to Saginaw for houses, which is only about 15 minutes away from Midland.

Now, don’t get too excited about the specs on this house, guys.  Sure, it is tasteful and gorgeous and cheap, but no one wants to move to Sagniaw.  Mostly because there are no jobs. Which is why they have a ton of houses on the market right now.

This MCM house is about 1300 square feet and is currently going for $92,900.  No,  I didn’t not type that wrong.  Yes, that is how much it is. And it is very pretty. But you don’t want to move to Saginaw.

Love the outside, very nice.  The iron accents are great. 

Interesting kitchen. What do you think, orignal cabinets?  I was thinking no, but around the right corner is a very vintage looking shelf.  Maybe just the shelf is original.

Cute retro kitchen table. I like it.

Once again, cute.

Very simple furniture, but it looks good. I love the fireplace, that is the same door we have on our fireplace, and the mulit-colored slate hearth is an excellent touch.

Even the laundry has a great mid-century touch.  Love that light!

Love the wood floor.


Oh my god! It looks like ice cream!

I LOVE this bathroom. Soooo dreamy.  And this is the first time I have ever seen that mint green with peach fixtures.  And I have to say, I love it! The shuttered cabinets are great, too.

But don’t move to Saginaw.  Just…no.

    Love the house, but, I don’t think those kitchen cabs are orginial. They look too 21st century. That bathroom is making me swoon! I have built-ins in my bathroom and I love them!

    The Detroit area suburbs are loaded with homes for sale, some pretty cheap, but like you said, Ruth, NO JOBS.

    what a cutie….it just kills me that there are all these darling places to live, but nothing to DO job-wise. I’ve always heard that Detroit has some killer architecture, and obviously where you are ROCKS. I hope it gets better soon for everyone there.

    Ah, to be independently wealthy and not HAVE to work…then you could go anywhere.

    It looks like they made an Ikea run to sparsely stage the house. There would be fistfights here in CA if houses were that cheap and that big. That’s 300 square feet bigger than my house and I paid more than double that. Whew.

    Yeah, let’s win the lottery and then we can all move to Michigan and have a community of all MCM home lovers! Sounds good to me! I LOVE that bathroom!!!

    Luckily I already live in Saginaw MI, and I love MCM. That’s how I found this post. Too bad we bought a basic boring ranch 2 years ago, before I discoved that what I really liked was MCM. oh well, it looks like an awesome house.
