Sometimes you see traces of what an older home used to look like through the slick veneer of fresh paint and new flooring. Perhaps the cabinets in the kitchen get a refacing and the paneling in a bedroom is stripped and recoated, but under decades of haphazard updating is a mystery.
If the anthropologist in you is always curious about these things, head over to 6509 Prince in Caruth Terrace on Sunday to check out a 1955 ranch in original condition for $334,900.
This house has four good-sized bedrooms and three baths, and totals more than 2,500 square feet. Other than your typical replacements — flooring, windows, sprinkler system, and I think one appliance — this home looks just like it did when it was purchased almost 60 years ago.
Each of the bathrooms, which have the original Daltile of course, have a different color scheme. The largest bathroom is a lovely combination of pink and gray, while the other bathrooms feature a more neutral cream and a pea soup/evergreen scheme.
In the backyard you’ll see a built-in grill and a carport with storage, but no garage. Want to see it in person? Head over to 6509 Prince on Sunday, Sept. 30, between 1 and 3 p.m.
