Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Spacious Rancher in Springfield, MO


By Eartha Kitsch

We’re back in Missouri this week with another fantastic home. I love the open floor plan in this one and the high ceilings. And like a moth to a flame, I’m as smitten with the original kitchen and baths as a person can possibly be. Missouri is known as “The Show Me State” and it’s certainly showing us some beautiful mid-century homes lately!



This home is located at 2306 S. Meadowview Avenue in Springfield, Missouri. It has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and is 3,096 square feet. It was built in 1953 and is listed for $195,000. It is being offered by Janet Parsons with RE/MAX . From the listing:

This California Contemporary home sits on a half-acre lot in desirable Southern Hills. Features more than 3,000 sq. ft. on one level, fireplace in living and family rooms. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. Designed by Hal Hawkins with vaulted ceiling, wood parquet flooring, Pella windows, cedar lined closets. Two sheds for additional storage. The room off of large utility room could be used as an office. 3 living areas including large open sun room.

Let’s take a look inside of this home!

Exterior and Yard




This one seems like a dreamboat of a house to me. It has SO many original details and I really like that glass sun room that doesn’t block any of the view to the backyard. And did you see the vintage wall refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen? If not, catch a glimpse of it here along the back wall.

    Um WOW…. Just wow. I can’t get over what an amazing place you could own for that low price! So I’m going to pack now- moving to Springfield. LOL 😉

    Wow, what a beautiful mid century atomic ranch! I can’t believe the price either–a great buy, especially for the footage here. And, MO has great low taxes as well! I live in the Chicago suburbs, and this home would probably be over 550,000 here! The lucky person who gets this has a gem!

    Wow! This is a marvellous home! Can’t decide if I like the living room or den more—both have such fine fireplaces. That sunny kitchen—and those bathroom!
