September 23, 2011What’s Behind Those MCM Doors?
By Sablemable aka Jan
As I sit here, recovering from an upper respiratory infection (still!), I was thinking of something to post for today. Then I remembered how frustrated I’ve been while searching for time capsule homes to feature on Sunday and discovering that whenever I found the perfect MCM home, there are little to no photos available. Fudge.
So I dug out a few examples to show you.
The first set of photos are courtesy of Keller Williams (www.kw.com).
This 1955 brick ranch in Livonia, Michigan really wigs me! The description says, “Hard to find unaltered beauty,” and “Step back in time.”
In Franklin Township, Michigan, this 1955 brick ranch is just waiting for someone to love it the way it is, unconditionally. You can barely see the original aluminum storm door behind the pine tree.
In Dearborn, Michigan, this 1954 brick ranch looks like it’s saying, “Come on in, check me out!” Well, if only there were some photos……….
The description on this 1958 Atlanta, Georgia home says, “Enjoy this beautifully preserved 1950s traditional ranch style home,” and, “Authentic in every way.” Be still my beating heart!
Get out your hankies, guys, as you will surely cry your eyes out over these two (2) Atlanta, Georgia homes.
Number 1 was built in 1950.
Number 2 was built in 1952.
So why the hankies, you ask? Both are described as “tear downs.” Waaaaaaaah!
The last set of photos are courtesy of Realtor (www.realtor.com) and are located in my neck of the woods.
In Benton Harbor, Michigan, this 1956 contemporary home is described as “Vintage, as most of its original design remains intact.” Oh, Lord, I’m choking.
Another Benton Harbor home is this 1960 quad-level down by the river. Do you think I’d raise suspicion if I brought a ladder to peek into the windows?
And, finally, this 1966 brick ranch in St. Joseph, Michigan.
Oh, the pain! Oh, the agony!
I hope I didn’t ruin your weekend, readers.
