Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Clemson, South Carolina

By MidModMichelle

Well hello, we meet again! Today we’re checking out a super swell 1950s atomic ranch sent in by reader Katey G.! I am really loving this one, it just has so much potential to be at the top of its game. I love a good project and I’m telling you, it wouldn’t take much work to restore this baby. Let’s take a look!

This home is located at 104 E Lewis Rd, Clemson, South Carolina on a 1.43 acre lot in a desirable neighborhood. It is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 2,555 square foot home built in 1956 that is being offered at $292,000. The listing is courtesy of Teresa Jones at Carolina Real Estate. For more information and additional photos you can check out the listing here. From the listing:

This spacious one owner custom built home sits on 1.43 acres in desirable Clemson Hgts. and right off Cherry Road, super convenient to the stadium and Clemson University. Big kitchen with abundant cabinetry spills into large family room, both with volume ceilings and expansive windows that overlook private and picturesque back yard. More formal LR / DR are spacious as well with an additional wall of insulated windows that creates excellent natural light. Four BR’s and 2 baths, ( master bath more recently updated) compliment the remaining first floor. Hardwood floors are under most of the carpet other than the kitchen and family room. Basement area has a full bath as well with several unfinished rooms excellent for storage, workshop, projects or rainy day activities for little ones. Exterior of home has mixed and interesting plantings and landscaping. This home has been lovingly cared for over the years but is now waiting for new owners to add their personal touch.


(This home has great lines, and I love that minty trim color!)

(Very pretty lush lot!)


(The big window is awesome, this room has so much potential!)


(Lovely knotty pine and gorgeous turquoise sink! Would relocate washer/dryer and add retro appliances to match the sink!)


(Being a fan of knotty pine, I really love this den!)



(Black and pink bathroom is soooo cute!)

(Obvs updated, but you could change out the vanity/lighting for a more retro look.)

So what did y’all think of this one? I am already planning the restoration out in my head! Haha! The mister and I would have been all over this one when we were house-hunting if we lived in that area! I know knotty pine is often a love/hate relationship even within our community, but I personally love it. Do you think there is too much of it in this home?

    Wow, this house is a real time capsule. The knotty pine offers all kinds of options for a creative buyer. And that huge front window with vaulted ceiling begs for some houseplants.

    That kitchen! Definitely get appliances to match the sink. I’d keep the washer and dryer where there are and try to get vintage turquoise versions. The kitchen looks large enough to accommodate it all. And so much counter space!

    I love the knotty pine-it is so cozy! What a great kitchen, and I would love a closer look at that yard. I’m guessing tons of perennials.

    It looks like that first room originally had a vaulted ceiling, and is back to back with the piney room, with the fireplace in the middle. I’d love to replace that overwhelming fireplace with a slimmer, two sided fireplace, break open the walls on either side, and restore that vault. And, sorry, this much pine makes me feel like I’m living in a squirrel’s tree hole. That kitchen layout is just dumb. I’d keep the sink and redo the whole shebang.
