Quick Take: Hidden Gem in Your Price Range

You want to know about the cool houses nobody else is talking about. And here you go! This 1960 modernist home is in a great location (just North of Old Towne Orange) and has over 1800 square feet. Some might call it untouched, but I’m going to call it largely unmolested (okay, the kitchen and baths have been “updated” with granite — ugh). But it’s minor. We’ve got big ceilings, lots of glass, clerestory windows, and a home the same size as the average Eichler for a lot less money. Is it an Eichler — no, but it’s currently $135k less than a smaller Eichler in the nearby Fairmeadow neighborhood. That’s a pretty compelling discount and encouragement to do something unique.
