  1. I would be an honor to look for a house for you Dana. Thanks for the big giggle I got from your Spaz, major clutz remark. We are just a couple of Spazos.

    I want this house. I wish there was one in St. Louis. I’m going to have to make you search for one for me in this area in a couple years. I, too, love the turquoise couch and the kitchen table set. How crazy that it has come back to this style of home currently with the open spaces and windows.

    By the way, I’d be a Spaz, because I am a major clutz!!

    Love this post!

  3. Wow, so interesting Candy that your home sold in ONE day and that you would buy it back now too. Your home was even larger than this one too.

  4. I still love this style of home. I had a three level split that looked very much like this one. If I had the money I would buy it back in a heart beat. Open spaces and really big rooms! I think my house was around 2700 sq feet. I had so much fun renovating and remodeling it. It sold the first day it listed.

  5. I love the clean straight lines of a Mid Century Modern home. This is style you don’t see much of here. I enjoyed all the slang.

  6. I am so happy to know you now Cyndi and interesting to find out you like Mid Century Modern too.

  7. I’m such a fan of Mid-Century Modern, and would love to own one – especially an Eichler home with their to die for atriums. But…you could talk me into this one if I were living in the area. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  8. I wish I could be a real estate investor and buy this lovely myself too.

  9. I’d love to get my hands on one of these- sorta bring it up to date while not losing the overall intent of the style. Great post- again.

  10. All I can say is ..Wow Carol. Your family house and history is so interesting and amazing that not much has changed other than the design of the cars! Snap a photo and share someday.

  11. Thanks Anj, you’re right, I did not think of the Brady Bunch house too.

  12. This truly was Memory Lane for me. My parents built their ranch house in 1950 on family property with relatives sprinkled across the same land in old farmhouses. In 1954, they sold much of the land between all of the family houses and tracts were built. The tract houses surrounding us were much like the Lucien Hood house you featured. I remember marveling at the windows, brick walls and the interesting slant to the ceilings.

    My sister now owns the family house, most of the farmhouses still stand surrounded by the mid-century moderns and not much has really changed since the 50s in the neighborhood except the design of the cars in the driveway.

  13. love this home reminds me so much of watching the Brady bunch when i was a kid
    Happy St Patrick’s day thanks for the flash back
