Mark’s Preview Notes:

I really like this eclectic mix of Mid-Century and modern elements in this custom home of 1973.  All the cues are there, post and beam construction with vast windows, tongue-and-groove ceiling, and the cantilevered mantle covered in slate is a really nice touch.  This should be a nice oasis for someone looking for a quiet retreat within a natural surrounding.

A unique opportunity to own a custom Mid-Century Modern home that backs to the creek in a very cozy neighborhood.  With a little vision and a budget you could do a really great makeover here for a fun Atomic Ranch!

Mark’s Preview Notes:

Ok, 1977 may not technically be categorized as Mid-Century and there are only a few elements to this house which one would classify as Modern, but I just felt compelled to write about this house.  This is a time capsule — it has not changed one bit since it was built in 1977!  With a good vision for modernizing and upgrading all the fixtures, I think you end up with a very desirable home in great schools with nice views.  This should be brought back to the hip-hangout it was meant to be!  Come on, how often do you see a step-down living room with bench seating surrounding the fireplace?!  Immediately makes me think of the Meglio Stasera scene from the Pink Panther:
