January 16, 2011Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Raleigh, North Carolina
By Sablemable aka Jan
Next to finding a time-capsule MCM home, I love doing this post because I can search the web for homes wearing my jammies and drinking gallons of coffee all in the comfort of my own MCM home! And, you, readers, can do the jammies/coffee thing while you read the post! Win-win situation, I’d say!
Our featured home, built in 1959, is located at 4820 Whitehall Avenue in Raleigh, North Carolina. This was a rare find, as most of the homes have that southern antebellum feeling and what MCM homes are found in the South have usually been remodeled.
This home would be great for a single MCM’er or retired MCM couple. There are 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1,627 square feet. No basement, but the house sits on a concrete slab. A detached garage was built and sits behind the carport. The only thing that looks new is the toilet, otherwise, this home is near perfect. The price for this home is $144,900.00 and is listed with Wieland Properties, Inc. You may leave a voice mail at (919) 831-5312. Photos courtesy of www.realtor.com.
