NO – Not our house, but another 1959 Mid-Century Modern located down the street in Laurenburg, NC. About half way from Lewisville, NC to the coast is a small town nestled in the pine forests. This is part of a series where we explore furniture and homes from the 1950’s, 1960’s and early 1970’s. I saw this listed on Facebook and grabbed the chance at capturing this wonderful period correct home. This one is going for only $149,900 and seems to be in excellent condition. I am sure it will make someone a happy home.

Anytime we see a house like this, we want to capture the essence of the place to reflect on changes we are making. Some things are almost impossible to replicate however you can get design ideas that will help in your projects. As one example the dinning room chandelier. We have been looking for one in this style (almost impossible to find in vintage good condition). This one while we don’t know if it is original confirms this is what we were looking for and it would work in our house.
