Another Beautiful 1970s Dream Home

It seems I have a crush on homes from the decade of my birth. I know they're not everyone's cup of tea, and I hope that works in my favor in my house hunt. Maybe I'll be able to get a good deal because other people think these mid-century modern homes are "ugly".

The home I'm about to show you is ALSO unfortunately listed out of my price range, about the same amount as my other 1970s dream home I've rhapsodizing about all week on here. It has already had a significant price reduction, so I doubt I could get it for a price I could pay. It's fun to dream, though. I'll console myself because the yard is small and unfenced, with most of the lawn in the front yard of the property.

It's MLS #1086993, listed by Tony Kanski of Cornerstone Real Estate Professionals, 435-760-3780. It is bigger than we need, at 4482 sq. ft., with five bedrooms and six bathrooms on a .28 acre lot. Isn't it lovely? Or maybe I just think that because they used all the same paint colors I just used in my remodel. It was built in 1972, and has had lots of updates. Several of the bedrooms and bathrooms aren't shown, though, so I'm not sure what state of remodel they are in. Maybe there's a surprise lurking in the basement here, too?

It's in a nice neighborhood near Lundstrom Park in east Logan. It looks so nice to move into something and worry only about decorating instead of remodeling. (Maybe a little remodeling if there are rooms that haven't been done yet.)














(Not sure why the toiled faces two huge windows)






So what do you think? Is this more your cup of tea? Do you think the outside is hideous? I promise next time I show you a house it will be one in my price range.

  1. Lovely. Especially like the kitchen/living room area. Looks like it was professionally decorated.

    1. Definitely looks like someone's been doing some Pinning, huh?

  2. I like this one! Don't love the outside but the lovely dining/living PLUS the huge windows letting in oh so much light make up for it. But, honestly, SIX bathrooms? Why? And how much of the square footage is taken up by these six bathrooms? I would leave 3 of them permanently closed.

    1. I love the tall ceilings and the light! For some reason I have a taste for that kind of exterior, too, so it's all good with me. Six bathrooms does seem excessive. Two full baths and two half baths on the main floor (along with two bedrooms), two 3/4 baths in the basement (along with three bedrooms). I'm not sure why two half baths were needed, or the additional bath in the basement? Maybe it's a heart-shaped tub in an "exercise room"!!?!

  3. Oh, I love that living room. The bright white is so pretty and clean! Makes the colors pop! Great natural lighting, too, jealous...

    1. Thanks for stopping by Suzannah! Yes, this place does have lovely light. I wish I could afford to put an offer in :)
