The last several years have seen a huge resurgence in the popularity of all things midcentury modern in housing. If not “straight” midcentury, then a dash of atomic era flavor. People seem to crave the clean architectural lines, emphasis on natural light, and open design concepts.
In Richardson, a popular “inner-ring” suburb of Dallas, there’ an abundance of houses built in the 1950s and early 1960s. Our Tuesday Two Hundred is an example of this style, with dashes of midcentury design throughout.
It is located at 805 Melrose Dr. in the Greenwood Hills neighborhood of Richardson. This 1960 ranch’s defining midcentury feature is an oversized brick fireplace and divider wall in the entryway and living room. Truly a fabulous design element in this three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,639-square-foot home.
