Price: $1,395,000

There’s some gorgeous midcentury modern architecture popping up for sale throughout Texas, and the latest gem to come on the market is this 1952 home in Dallas. Although it appears to have been updated over the years, many original details are intact, making the 3,000-square-foot residence an ideal combination of vintage design and contemporary comforts.

The low-profile rancher features a flagstone facade and a basic L-shaped layout that creates a nice flow in the interiors. Anchoring the space is a large living room with a stone fireplace, built-in shelving, concealed wet bar, brick floors, and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that frame views of the expansive backyard. A formal dining area and a kitchen with original cabinetry and updated stainless steel appliances and counters (plus the original stove and oven) follow through a corridor.

Three bedrooms and two and a half baths (including one connected to an office) round out the home’s private quarters. Located on just over a half-acre at 9234 Rockbrook Drive, the property is listed at $1.395 million.
