70s Contemporary Makes Good

You won’t find any shag carpeting, walls of mirrors, or a trapped and forgotten Brady hiding in this 1970s contemporary home — and that’s a good thing. We’ve love been a fan of these homes coming into their own — because they really combine the best of both worlds — the bright airy feeling of mid-century modern homes, with the functionality and practicality of newer homes: more space, bigger rooms, and actual storage. 

This remodel isn’t perfect, but what you have is a beautiful space that works for nearly all furnishing types. The kitchen is modern with a healthy dose of playfulness (and the skylights really work). The seller’s decor is leaning just a little too far towards the rustic, but that’s an easy change with the right furnishings. Unlike some 1970s contemporary homes, which can feel like the set of some dystopian future, exuding the sterility — this home feels warm, bright, happy, and clean. 

It’s on a huge lot, too, in the East hills above Fullerton. If you haven’t checked this neighborhood out, you should. With over 14,000 square feet, this is a big lot and there’s a lot you could do with it. We won’t ignore the elephant in the room — it does back to State College and there’s no denying that it’s a major thoroughfare, but the acoustics can be funny sometimes and this home is set right in the middle of the lot. It’s one where it’s worth seeing for yourself to assess the noisy characteristics — don’t go by the map. 

This house is like sifting through rocks and discovering a piece of gold. If you thought your family situation and geographic location were exiling you to a life of style-less tract homes — think again. There are cool houses that will meet your practicality needs. 

But don’t take our word for it, contact us for a private showing.
