Extreme midcentury-modern makeovers aren’t exclusive to Atlanta.

About two miles from Forsyth Park, this 1950 ranch occupies a palm-studded section of Savannah called Lamara Heights, which is chockfull of low-slung brick homes from the era on generous lots.

Suffice it to say this renovation stands out now.

Marketed as an “absolutely stunning midcentury modern gem,” the four-bedroom, three-bathroom property is listed for $450,000. That buys practically the same place in an intown neighborhood like East Atlanta.

A recent overhaul resulted in jazzed-up, painted-brick exteriors and an interior of gleaming white floors wider than the Intracoastal Waterway.

Nice touches include the living-room built-ins and fireplace, the modernized (but yet throwback?) kitchen with upgraded appliances, two patios, and the fenced backyard’s style-appropriate fire pit area.

Also spotted: honeycomb tiling last seen in a refreshed West End bungalow.

Offering 2,300 square feet, it’s not the only ranch reaching north of $400,000 in the area, though others are larger.

Here on Sussex Place, the WalkScore registers at a not-bad 68, but Savannah lovers could want more from this paragon of open-container pedestrianism.
