March 20, 2011Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Omaha, Nebraska
By Sablemable aka Jan
Our feature home caught my eye in terms of architectural design and oh, Lord, all of the original lights and front door! At 3525 S. 49 Avenue, the home was built in 1957; there are 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3,421 square feet. It appears that the walk-0ut basement had been converted into an apartment, so the kitchen, bath and entry door has been changed. Darn. There’s also an addition of a deck, one of those ubiquitous monstrosities that you see today. Yuck. However, all is not lost, as the home still breathes MCM style and class. The price for the home is $189,900.00 which isn’t bad. For more information, contact Keller Williams Greater Omaha at (402)884-4800. Photos are courtesy of Keller Williams (www.kw.com). PS: some of the rooms I couldn’t figure out what their purpose was, so I’ll be guessing.
THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE
I love all of the modern angles and love the front door!
THE LIVING ROOM
Okay, from what I can gather, the living room is down from the entrance. Don’t you love the hanging lights, wrought iron and stone planter?
Nice vintage stove. What kind is it, my vintage appliance experts? Looks as if the owners changed the cabinets, but you don’t care, do you Saraaaaaaaaaaa because you would tear them out, eh?
I THINK these are bedrooms! Love the built-ins and the view in the second photo! The second photo may be the bedroom over the garage. Maybe.
A PINK(!) BATHROOM
THE BASEMENT APARTMENT
The kitchen cabinets would have to go, but keep the appliances and the round fluorescent ceiling light.
Here’s the ugly new door.
This final photo is a mystery to me. Could it be a family room, part of the living room or maybe a master bedroom kitchenette?
This would be a fun restoration project for the price and amount of square feet involved. Tell me, readers, what would you do to bring it up to MCM snuff?
