A house built in the 1950s can be a wonderful thing. This is especially true when the owners have maintained the home’s vintage charm, but updated it with modern amenities.

This is the case our Tuesday Two Hundred at 10812 Wyatt St., a lovely Lochwood ranch with a long list of recent updates, but a definite sense of its 1958 construction date. In 2014, the house got new HVAC, water heater, dishwasher, kitchen cabinets, recycled glass countertops, disposal, kitchen sink and faucet, kitchen porcelain floor, bathroom tile and fixtures, Whirlpool bathtub in the full bath, refinished hardwood floors, fresh paint, ceiling fans, and light fixtures. (Try saying all that in one breath!)

This home has three bedrooms, one full bath, one half bath, and 1,236 square feet. It was listed June 29 by Tara Westbrook with Tara Westbrook Real Estate for $275,000.
