Location: Bradford Woods, Pennsylvania

Price: $439,000

This sprawling midcentury modern home in Bradford Woods, Pennsylvania, unfurls across a single level that flows from room to spacious room. Built in 1955, it retains many of the era’s best elements, including paneled walls, tongue-and-groove beamed ceilings, an open floorplan, and more.

Entering the 3,900-square-foot residence, one is greeted by colorful slate floors and a vaulted great room—and it is indeed very large—boasting the aforementioned vaulted cherry ceilings. An impressive stone fireplace and hearth holds court in a corner, while a row of sliding glass doors opens onto a patio and the 1.4-acre site beyond.

A spacious period kitchen “with tremendous renovation potential,” as the listing notes, is located at the far end of the living room, with a huge sunroom with glass sliders—currently used as an office but could easily be transformed into family or entertainment room—adjacent to that and connected by an open entryway.

As for the private quarters, there are four bedrooms, including an ensuite master, as well as three full baths and one partial that are charmingly period but could also use an update. Downstairs, a finished walk-out basement, storage, and a laundry room round out the house, which enjoys private wooded grounds, a stream, and fire pit. Located at 164 Bradford Road, the home is offered at $439,000.
