This $1.25 million Mid-Century Modern home in Ann Arbor hasn’t been touched since the 1950s — let’s take a tour


While we await the invention of an actual hot tub time machine, the opportunity to live out our most spectacular 1950s fantasy is a reality for $1,250,000. Located in Ann Arbor's coveted Barton Hills community, this 3 bed, 3 bath, 2,758 square foot home with 360 feet of Barton Pond frontage is a Mid-Century Modernism lover's wildest fantasy. Designed by Colvin, Robinson, and Associates in 1954, this home, per the real estate agent, hasn't been touched since then other than, you know, meticulously maintaining its sleek and sophisticated grandeur.

In keeping with true mid-mod aesthetic, the home brings the outside in thanks to clean lines, roomy living spaces,  and walls of windows that offer panoramic views of the pond. The first floor is home to a double-sided slate fireplace that pulls double duty for those enjoying the living and dining rooms. If you like heat, then you'll be pleased to know that the slate floors in the foyer and dining room are heated. Really like heat? Well, the home's four-season room offers a vaulted ceiling and, you know, a wood burner stove, NBD. For those who like to keep an open mind, the kitchen is an open concept with ample counter space and cabinetry. Moving on up to the second floor, the vaulted ceiling trend continues in the three large bedrooms, where you'll also find an open loft area equipped with vintage cedar walls (so you can store your finest furs) as well as a built-in desk and built-in planter boxes.
