A charming midcentury modern home awaits a new owner in Little Canada, an inner ring suburb of Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota. Built in 1958, the two-bedroom-two-bath is on the market for the first time, with many of its original details in tact.

A shingle-roof and a timber-clad exterior with garage and carport mark the entrance to the two-story residence, which features an open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area divided by a white-brick fireplace on the first floor.

Here, carpeting makes up the floors, while sliding glass doors open onto a wraparound balcony and the shores of Lake Gervais. The period kitchen includes what appears to be original cabinetry and a breakfast counter. With the right touches and updates, it could sing a mean midcentury tune—which goes for the rest of the house as well. The updated bathroom could also use a further facelift.

With its strong bones, ample outdoor-living opportunities, and lakefront access, the fixer-upper located at 633 Country Road B2 has potential to shine for $449,900. Take a look.
