November 17, 2013Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Modern Masterpiece in Mineola, TX
by Eartha Kitsch
This week’s home is a bit of a Mid-Century Modern dream. Clean lines? Check. Natural lighting? Check. So packed full of all-original features that it makes me shriek with glee? Check! Check! It also has quite the lineage as it was designed by E. Davis Wilcox who studied under Frank Lloyd Wright.
This home is located at 615 N. Johnson Street in Mineola, Texas. It has three bedrooms and two baths and a total of 2,471 square feet. It was built in 1950 and is listed by Virginia Cook Realtors. It is priced at $299,000. From the listing:

While looking at the photos, I kept reminding myself that this house is listed for $299,000. Consider my mind blown! I’d be all over this house if it was located here. I would bring in some brightly colored vintage furniture and decor and live happily ever after. Did you see that gigantic Dining Room with seating for sixteen people?
What say you, readers? Are you as mad about this house as I am? Which features do you enjoy?
