This $319k Michigan mid-century modern cutie puts the ‘fun’ in functionality


Nothing will kick those seasonal depressive feelings to the curb quite like the curb appeal and brightly colored interior cuteness of this mid-century modern home in Midland. Built in 1964 (so you know it's legit) this carefully updated home spans 2,296 square feet and boasts 4 beds, 3 baths, and a whole lot of mid-mod elements that will inspire the urge to entertain — you know, when it's safe to do so. The home puts the fun in functionality with its bold colors, vaulted ceilings, and through the use of geometric lines, and natural materials like redwood, Tennessee limestone, and Douglas Fir trim. The open concept living area with a massive stone fireplace opens into a large dining space and an updated kitchen with ample storage. There's a screened-in porch, too, for year-long hangs and spacious bedrooms with built-in storage, shelving, and vanities. As for the bathrooms? Adorable. One features baby blue tiling throughout while another adopts pinks and whites. Need more space for living? The lower level offers an entertainment space (guitars not included) and an additional bedroom and full bath. Per the listing, the home also has some notable updates: a metal roof, custom windows, and a freshly stained exterior. Damn. We're feeling cheerier already!
