Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

By Sablemable aka Jan

Our “open house” today is located at 1036 S. Trail Lane in St. Joseph, Michigan.  The house was built in 1965, has 2,470 square feet,  3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a basement and 2 car attached garage.  It’s listed at $154,900.00 and the agency is Core Real Estate, Inc. (269) 429-8001.  Thomas Christie is the agent. 

THE FRONT, SIDE AND BACK

THE LIVING ROOM

THE KITCHEN/DINING AREA

ONE OF THE BATHROOMS

THE FAMILY ROOM (I THINK)

FIRST FLOOR LAUNDRY AREA (W/JALOUSIE WINDOW DOOR!)

With the exception of the new storm doors and the ugly ceramic tile floors in the kitchen and bathroom, this is a gorgeous example of Mid-Century Modern!  I don’t know what it is about the area in which I live, but everyone wants to rehab/destroy the interiors of MCM homes.  I think I’m gonna cry.

    I LOVE the front door on that house, it’s gorgeous!

    I think the destroying of MCM houses is sadly everywhere. I like the keep an eye on the MLS here for fun, and even though there’s tons of houses in the town that I live in that are the right age, they have generally been renovated to within an inch of their lives!

    Andreaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!

    The rehab disease spreads quickly, eh? We’ll cry together then.

    Yes, the front door and also the side and back doors are the same and I love them, too!

    Sable – I think you already know the rehab disease has spread rampantly down here in Az! 🙁

    Great house though!

    I like the garage door! The rehab disease spreads here in the south, too. It’s really sad. Mr. B and I are in the middle of negotiating buying a 1963 Shasta Astrodome camping trailer. It needs work, but it has really good bones. The guy even has the wings! I’m so excited, and I hope it works out. If it does, I’ll have to send you guys some pics of our progress.

    Those doors just knock me out! Love that picture window, too. Great house with very few changes, thankfully.

    Sadly, in our area, there is very little even to be affected by the rehab disease. The few MCM-er’s around here fortunately have managed to survive by some strange default, perhaps because most of them are second homes. Maybe the heightened awareness of MCM will keep them off the demolition list. I don’t know, though; this area is rampant with the McMansion Mentality.
