Mid-Century in Raleigh Park


I listed this home less than a week ago, and I'm really excited about it. The home was built in 1947 and has both traditional and mid-century qualities, so one can take the decor and remodeling of this home in either direction. One mid-century piece is the generous eaves that give a lovely line to the home but also have protected the wide lap siding these many years from the wet and provide shade during the summers. The architect designed home sits back snugly on the lot and belies the 3400 sq ft that lie within, another hallmark on mid-century design, as well as it's many windows and doors to allow the outside in. The lot is over 11,000 sq ft and gives the rear of the home a great deal of privacy, but also room for raised beds, a sport court, deck and play structure.

The interior layout allows for privacy between family members with bedrooms both up and down, three full baths, and both living room and family room.

The kitchen is light and bright with large windows and skylight illuminating the gleaming granite counters. A kitchen nook with a built in bench is perfect for casual dining and a formal dining room is just beyond the kitchen for more intimate gatherings.

This prized, close in neighborhood is close to New Seasons (a must), a neighborhood park, library, elementary school, post office- and in 20 minutes you can be sitting at the bar at Clyde Commons with a cocktail in your hand if the parking gods are with you. $559,950
