At $280K, homebuyer gets 'untouched' interior, 'lush gardens'

In the description of this 2,080-square-foot midcentury modern home, the listing agent paints a picture of idyllic, Disney-esque nature in the backyard, complete with "lush gardens and a bluebird sanctuary."

The interior is described as "untouched," with tongue-and-groove wood ceilings, original decorative fireplace hood vents, and original black walnut kitchen cabinets. The only apparent hint of change is a few stainless appliances and some updates to things like faucets. Midcentury purists are sure to swoon.

The agent presciently warned prospective homebuyers to "hurry ... this diamond won't last long." And, she was right; the place was listed at $280,000 over the weekend, and by Monday morning it had entered the due diligence period of a contract.

Built in 1966 and nestled in Northcrest — an ATP (at the perimeter) neighborhood near Spaghetti Junction that's full of fellow MCMs — the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home also has a large picture window overlooking that aforementioned natural beauty in the backyard.

Let's hope sledgehammers will have no place in this home's future.
