The place

A big, mid-century home with a very vintage interior.

The history

The house was built in 1958 and hasn’t been renovated in a significant way since 1971.

Here’s the porch area:

For a certain type of buyer, this is good staging. You always want to be sure there’s room for a baby grand:

The living room has space for an impressively huge sectional:

The dining room seats a bunch:

The solarium kitchen kinda looks like it’s inside the fuselage of a space shuttle:

The family room has those textured ceilings that were all the rage in the ’70s:

And there’s another kitchen:

A game room:

And an office large enough for multiple employees:

Here’s the back patio:

And the enormous backyard:

Big selling point

There’s a full-size indoor pool for year-round swimming, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows along one corner:

Possible deal breaker

The design of this home is dated, but buyers who like a retro feel may appreciate its quirks. For those who aren’t into the ’70s look, the 100-foot lot should make it possible to tear this place down and build something even bigger where it stood.
