Look familiar? A 1964 Tara Oaks home re-relisted last week after washing its face (top) of its once-touted all-encompassing custom paint motifs (above), which drew a lot of attention after an appearance on Swamplot back in May 2013. In the interim, the tweaked corner-lot property also dropped its asking price to $1.975 million, down from the $2.395 million sought in 2 previous runs on the market between May and October of this year. Last week’s new listing calls attention to the home’s newly neutral color scheme, otherwise known as white. Here’s a waltz past the interior’s Now and Then looks:

Somewhere within this newly listed 1964 Hunters Creek home in the Tara Oaks neighborhood, a plain-old white ceiling or 2 has evaded upgrades. Most of the rooms, however, cap their decor with what the description dubs “carefully chosen finishes,” be they color, exposed beams, soaring vaults, more color, skylights, or some combo thereof. (No glass ceilings or debt ceiling, however — the Memorial Villages asking price hovers at $2,395,000.)
