This home just went on the market Thursday, and as of Friday morning I have received five messages and emails about this home. Something tells me that this cute Lochwood mid-century modern won’t be on the market for too long!

Everything in this 1961 split-level has been remodeled or replaced, according to listing agent Meg Skinner with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, making this four-bedroom, two-bath home really shine. Jump to see inside!

The exterior of 10882 Caprock Circle got a complete makeover that would baffle even the most skilled makeup artist. New paint, new Low-E aluminum casement windows, new front door, fresh pool hardware, new cedar fence, and fresh decking in the backyard.

Inside, the 2,136-square-foot home got a new HVAC condenser and new furnace, new water heater, refinished hardwood floors, new tile, fresh paint, a brand new kitchen and appliances in 2007, new lighting and fans, a custom stair rail that is totally sleek, and new hardware.

All of that renovation is reflected in the price of this beauty, which has to be inching in on some kind of record in this neighborhood. It’s listed for $490,000, which comes out to $229.40 per square foot. Some people will consider the pool and outside spaces worth that price tag, though.

For me, I’m pretty much smitten with every room in this house, save for the kitchen. While most of the rooms are transitional, contemporary, or modern feeling, the kitchen is very traditional looking. The granite counters and tumbled stone backsplash, brushed nickel fixtures, traditional oil-rubbed bronze hardware, and builder-grade cabinetry are just a little out of character from the rest of the home. It might be worth it to the buyer to replace the hardware, paint the cabinets or reface them, and replace the fixtures and lighting. However, I just don’t see the sense in pulling out the backsplash and counters.

But I won’t let that overshadow the good-looking-though-small bathrooms and the plentiful bedrooms, plus that great backyard. What do you think of this house?
