Casa View Midcentury Cottage Gets Modern Makeover

Casa ViewOur Tuesday Two Hundred, by definition of its price point, tends to be a showcase of starter homes — and this week’s updated Midcentury Ranch in Casa View is a great example of a starter home that can be quite long term.

So often, we hear the term starter home and assume it means that the buyer will be in it for a handful of years. But when you have a well-done remodel with a sensible garage conversion to increase the square footage of this 1957 home to a rare (for Casa View) 1,782 square feet, it becomes clear that this home has been remodeled with a family in mind.

The three-bedroom, two-bath home at 10040 Casa Oaks Dr. has been completely remodeled in neutral tones — meaning a buyer’s existing furnishings will easily enhance the surroundings.

The living area is actually fairly generous for this older home, and is open to the dining area that overlooks a substantial backyard with gorgeous green grass.

The galley-style kitchen is sleek and stylish with new dark cabinetry, granite counters, tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances — including a gas stove.

Off the kitchen, a double-sized utility and laundry room means that not only can you catch those dirty clothes as they walk through the back door, but you can also drop them right in the washing machine — a boon for a family with young children, or who like to garden.

And did we mention that the backyard is plenty big enough for some raised beds and even a chicken coop? It also has a water-tight storage shed.

Back inside, a spacious master suite offers plenty of closet space and an updated and sophisticated en-suite. Two more bedrooms and another updated bath provide plenty of space for a growing family, or for guests.

The home is also within walking distance of Harry Stone Park, making it pretty much the ideal spot for a family looking to buy its first home.

The Casa View abode is listed for $249,000 by Paige Poupart with Compass.
