Location: Sumter, South Carolina

Price: $247,900

Priced at $247,900 and hovering just above the national median price of homes—$240,700, according to the latest data from the National Association of Realtors—is this handsome, "Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired" three-bedroom midcentury modern in Sumter, South Carolina.

Built in 1959, the low-slung rancher features original details including reeded glass partitions, clerestory windows, working Frigidaire double ovens and "flip down" stove, and an open central fireplace. Though it needs a little refreshing (the kitchen and bathrooms in particular—though that pale pink tiling is darling), the 2,594-square-foot house invites in plenty of sunlight through its plentiful windows—as well as strong potential to shine. A wide front yard, cozy backyard, and the nearby Swan Lake Iris Gardens provide greenery. We wish the photos were a little better, but from what we can glimpse, this house could be something.
