February 26, 2017Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Arvada, Colorado
Ok folks! We’ve got a super cute 1956 split-level ranch for your viewing pleasure today. It has tons of original features, and some definite 60s-70s design additions. What I really like about it is you could keep it an eclectic mix of 50s-70s décor and it will still look stylish! And, would you take a look at that garage door! So cute!!
This home is located at 6340 Vance St, Arvada, Colorado on a nice lot close to parks and trails. It is a 3 bedroom, 1 bath, 1,921 square foot home built in 1956 that is being offered at $315,000.

This Mid-Century Modern Contemporary home near Olde Town, Arvada establishes itself with unique charisma and eccentric charm as soon as you cross the threshold. The enclosed patio at the rear of the entry way will quickly become your favorite hangout, with the floating fireplace acting as the centerpiece, you’ll find yourself gravitating to this room often. Gleaming wood floors, period tiles, built-ins and decorator touches bring a sense of nostalgia. Expansive family/recreation room in the lower level. New furnace and water heater. Bike or walk to Olde Town, parks and trails.
LIVING ROOM & DNING ROOM
(There’s a lot to love about this kitchen!!)
(Nice built-ins and I even kind of dig the red shag carpet!)
(SWOON!!! This room would be such a cool hang space!)
(Wow! Carpet in the bathroom would have to go but I like the 60s-70s wallpaper.)
You know, I think I’d keep it eclectic with the 50s-70s elements if it were mine. (Except the bathroom carpet of course.) It really seems like a hip and fun space to me. I would definitely freshen up the paint and change out the non-vintage light fixtures but I actually like the wallpaper in the kitchen and bathroom. And that tree mural is super interesting- I may try and work with that. (However, I’m very intrigued about the purpose of that black rectangle in the living room.) How do y’all feel about this one?
