This mid-century ranch home is De Luxe! Award-winning kitchen features professionally-restored Youngstown metal cabinetry + washboard sink unit that were sourced from the North Park Central neighborhood, rare vintage 1950 Maytag white enamel gas dutch range/oven, stainless steel dishwasher + refrigerator and checkerboard porcelain floors. The Youngstown steel cabinets are painted close to an original Youngstown color “meridian blue”. The kitchen cupboard space was increased beyond the space of the original kitchen and now has the equivalent of 2 kitchens worth of Youngstown cabinets. The Dishmaster “Imperial Four” faucet is a mid-century reproduction piece that looks just like a 1950s faucet, but is new and fancy. The American Institute of Interior Designers (ASID) presented this home with an award in 2014 for Design Excellence in the category “Historic Spaces”.
This home has the original double floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking rear yard; it is basically a full glass wall with a door. The original model home for North Park Central featured this dual window plan, but you don’t see these ones come on the market very often. The living spaces and bedrooms have wood laminate floors. The bedrooms have plantation shutters and ceiling fans. The bathrooms are vintage-cool with original, mid-century tile work.
A new energy-star rated roof was installed in 2016 and is still under warranty. The huge original inside laundry room (not included in the square footage figure) has storage cabinetry with pet food drawer and porcelain tile floors. Gorgeous park-like backyard with sissoo, elm, desert willow and eucalyptus trees.
Homes of this vintage are getting harder to come by with “vintage” still left in them. This is a great example of keeping a 1950s home’s character intact, while updating a home.
