Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Monessen, Pennsylvania

By MidModMichelle

Well hello again folks! Today we’re going to step away from million dollar mid-century homes and look at a totally affordable and kitschy ranch. This home was sent to us by Nancy Kate Grayson, the admin of the Mid Century Modern Real Estate World Wide Facebook group. If you haven’t checked them out you definitely should. You will not be disappointed! Now, let’s take a look at this gem!

This home is located at 333 Ridge Ave, Monessen, Pennsylvania on a large lot near a city park. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, undisclosed square foot home built in 1957 that is being offered at $119,000. The listing is courtesy of Jack Sung at Northwood Realty Services. For more information and additional photos you can check out the listing here. From the listing:

Mid century ranch 3 bedroom house located near Monessen City Park. This house is well built with 12′ bricks and very well maintained. Elegant looking driveway, nice size front and back yard with gardening area. HUGE porch side of the house to relax and enjoy nice view. Spacious living room and bedrooms, Large eat in kitchen. Finished basement for entertaining with family room and separate laundry room area. Friendly quiet family neighborhood. This home is perfect for family living!!!


(The storm door and railings are so cool!)


(Love that planter, wish we had a better photo of it!)

(What an amazing fireplace!!)



(Oh my stars, I’m in love with the cabinets!!)



(I’m dying over this pink and blue bathroom! Wow! Wish they had a photo of the other bathroom!)


(Future tiki bar! 😉 )


(A nice huge patio for entertaining!)

What a delightful little ranch! I’d take out the carpet and do some painting, but other than that, this home doesn’t need much to make me happy! And that price is incredible. I know some of our readers are more into modern and some are more into kitschy, so let’s hear your thoughts!

    Kitschy cute! That kitchen is so adorable. It reminds me of the furniture that I had in my bedroom as a kid. I could totally work with this house.

    You can count me among those who love the kitsch! I get a thrill out of seeing the mid-century modern abodes, as well, but there’s an extra-special place in my heart reserved for sweet little family homes like this one.
    I thought nothing could get better than that adorable kitchen…until I saw the pink and blue bathroom! I could definitely imagine moving in and changing very little. Love it all!

    That price!!! You can hardly buy a car for much less so this is a deal.

    That kitchen is lovely! I also adore the ironwork on the patio and the fireplace in the living room.
    I read about the term “fairytale ranch” somewhere. Would it apply to this house?
