The price is right on this architect’s-own midcentury modern home completed in 1963. Though it retains many of its original details, the 1,890-square-foot three-bedroom is certainly a fixer-upper.
Still, it wouldn’t take much effort to bring the Orange Park, Florida, residence back to its glory days. A recessed A-frame structure flanked by two mirror-image carports forms the main entrance, and judging by archival photos, remains virtually untouched.
This high-pitched volume extends toward the back of the house and comprises the foyer, a dining area, and a sunken living room anchored by a central fireplace. Turquoise trim and built-in shelves add character to the space, while a wall of sliding glass doors opens onto a deck and a “preserve of oaks and azaleas,” according to the listing.
Three bedrooms and three bathrooms in need of a refresh, plus what appears to be an updated kitchen, complete the property. Located at 526 Lakefield Lane, it’s offered at $215,000.
