This midcentury modern in the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood of Saint Paul, Minnesota, was built in 1957 and has been exquisitely preserved over the years—with just a few updates in parts. Designed by Milton Bergstedt and Jim Hirsch in 1957, the sprawling home unfurls across 3,353 square feet, showcasing the era’s best design principles.

The residence features four bedrooms and three baths across two spacious floors characterized by soaring, open-plan spaces with high ceilings, wood paneling, walls of glass, built-in storage, and many other delightful details.

In the great room, a large brick hearth establishes the space, which looks out onto the lush grounds and vast lawn by way of full-height windows. A dining area and what appears to be a period kitchen follow, as does a fully glazed porch. On the opposite side of the living room are the paneled master suite and another bedroom that is currently being used as an office (a system of built-in shelving and transom windows make it ideal for this purpose).

The lower level, which could use a bit of a refresh, is just as spacious. It boasts a family room with a mason block fireplace and two additional bedrooms—one with a section of aquamarine pegboard, another with a built-in desk and blue-painted mason accent wall, and both enjoying wood paneling. Two of the three bathrooms appear to have been updated recently, while the third retains its original tiling.

The home’s exterior is nothing to scoff at, either. Orange and yellow color blocks accent the paneled and glazed facade, lending it a vintage vibe, while cantilevering volumes add lightness. Located on a sloping site at 324 Stonebridge Boulevard, the property is offered at just under $600,000. Take a look.
