Almost matching wings of a deep set 1960 “rancho deluxe” mod extend across the front of a wedge lot formed by the street curling off Forest Oaks Dr. in Meadowcreek Village. When listed last week, the asking price was $215,000 for the property — believed to have been custom built back in the day for the owner of Moore Paper Co. It’s still a swank spread offering many period details — and a few curiosities . . .
There’s a scenic seaside folly beckoning from the wallpaper mural in the formal (and combo) dining-living room:
A brick mock fireplace provides a quasi-divider between the family room and kitchen:
First, though, there’s the corner still full of custom cabinetry from a vintageÂ built-in stereo system:
The exposed timber spine of the vaulted ceiling extends across both rooms and matches . . .
the cabinetry (with grab-angled hardware) and wall paneling. Several appliances, such as a NuTone food processor to the left of the sink, appear to be built into the backsplash:
Across the tile, the metallic remains of a paper-cup dispenser sit above the old built-in sound system by the microwave:
In the master suite, there’s a warren of spaces off the sleeping area . . .
which also has a bay window somewhere under the cascades of drapery:
Both doors flanking the bureau lead past closets to the master bathroom.
The door near the head of the bed heads past a vanity and into . . .
the sanctum of Mamie Pink tile. Between the split sinks, there’s a paper towel dispenser, currently used as a hamper:
Commode and tub have handy access to the home’s secondÂ paper-cup dispenser:
The adjacent closet area off a small hallway leading to the foot of the bed starts with a built-in dresser with a mirror that takes the long view:
The 2,519-sq.-ft. home has 2 secondary bedrooms:
Here’s one of the other bathrooms, updated at some point with Corian countertops. There’s also a half-bath near the utility room.
A portion of the back yard has a patio. The listing also mentions “detached bonus space”
The lot is 12,300 sq. ft., much of it front lawn:
