    Default A two-bedroom midcentury modern house in Dallas


    Allison V. Smith for The New York Times
    A two-bedroom midcentury modern house is on the market for $259,000 in a residential neighborhood in Dallas.



    Allison V. Smith for The New York Times
    The house, built in 1952, was renovated in 2006. The brick fireplace, formerly covered in several layers of paint, was exposed; the beamed ceiling was restored and repainted.

    I've always wanted to live in a day care centre.

    I want it. I would re-paint the walls and get rid of all the orange (the chairs and a small touch here or there is fine but orange walls are just nasty)

    I absolutely love this place...it's totally different from anything I would buy or seek out, but it just works. I love all the windows and the open feeling. Very cool space.

    Um no thanks. I grew up in the 70's and have no desire to re-live it.

    Yuck. Not a fan at all of any architecture from the 60s & 70s. Takes me back to the Brady Bunch.

    The very first thing I thought is that it looks like a smaller version of my elementary school.

    1) They have a couple nice furniture pieces that I would keep.

    2) The space is AWESOME.

    3) I would repaint the entire thing

    4) I would toss most of their furniture.

    After that, it would be amazing. Ugh. Want it.

    I was just going to type up the Brady theme song. Blech, living through the 70's was just fine for me.

    That house was built in the 50's, it's not it's fault you had to live in it in the 70s

    Yes it is, it's a well documented connection between that romper room and my age. And now I'm having flashbacks of lime green and dayglo yellow pants with giraffes, thank you very much.
