Mark’s Preview Notes:

This is a great opportunity to own an Ultra Modern home in downtown PA for a very reasonable price, so don’t let the exterior picture fool you.  I love the use of slate in the shower surround and the wall-mounted toilets (which very few designers are using today).  It has tall ceilings with glass sliders, an open kitchen with a great room for entertaining, and a very reasonable back yard.  On top of this you actually get land and an attached 2 car garage!  This one is not to be missed.

Mark’s Preview Notes:

If you are looking for a Mid-Century Modern project home this might be the one for you.  All original wood paneling and kitchen (with original appliances) give you a good starting point.  I hope someone doesn’t just tear this down to build a monster.

What a refreshing combination of Ultra Modern and farmhouse simplicity.  I really love the modern feel of the fixtures and finishes in bathrooms and kitchen, yet combined with the dining chandelier and wood floors it gives you a much warmer feeling.  This should be on the top of your list to see this weekend!

Mark’s Preview Notes:

It’s fun to see how a family from 1952 could comfortably thrive in a 3/1 of only 990sf living space.  I guess we just lived simpler lives without so many possessions back then.  This home might have been built by Mackay, but the corner windows in the bedrooms makes me a little uncertain.  I think this is a great start for a small family or single who wants to put a new modern spin on a very small space.  You have a great start here!

Mark’s Preview Notes:

One of 2 Anshen+Allen homes on the market this week!  Likely built by Gavello homes, this is basically the same floorplan and model as the home we helped feature in HGTV’s Flip It To Win It show last year right around the corner on Allendale.  It has been superficially updated so you have a good clean start.  I love the Ikea glass doors mounted on the original kitchen cabinets; what a great idea!    ​
