Midcentury homes come in all shapes and sizes, from Frank Lloyd Wright masterpieces to renovated abodes that blend 1960s style with modern conveniences. But some midcentury obsessives prefer homes that haven’t been renovated—or tampered, some might say—with modern sensibilities in mind.
The latest time capsule listing to cross our desk is this four-bedroom, two-bath home in Jonestown, Pennsylvania, about two hours northwest of Philadelphia. Constructed in 1960, the home features gently sloping, low-slung overhanging roofs and long horizontal lines.
Inside, a large stone fireplace is the focal point of the living room, and there is also clerestory windows, large floor-to-ceiling windows, and wood paneling. A light pink kitchen still boasts a lot of original features despite one or two newer appliances, and the dining room area features built-in cabinetry, parquet flooring, and more wood paneling.
But nothing makes midcentury diehards swoon quite like an original bathroom, and this home has it. A light pink and teal version features two sinks, original mirrors, seashell fixtures, and a pink tub.
