You Won’t Believe What We Found in this Fort Wayne Mid Century Modern Home!
If you’ve ever wanted to step straight into the psychedelic 60s—here’s your chance! A perfectly preserved time capsule, this gorgeous home is in mint condition with all the groovy, far out design elements of the era.
Built in 1960, and featured in Better Homes and Gardens in 1961, timeless characteristics of this classic style can be seen from the outside in. From uncluttered and sleek lines accented by geometric forms to the mixed use of contrasting materials, this home embodies a contemporary, almost futuristic aesthetic. The clean, minimalist exterior features angular structures and a recessed front entry flanked by giant sidelights and transom windows.
Inside this immaculate time warp home, you’re immediately greeted with an explosion of color from the abstract wallpaper to the multi-colored patterned tile. One of the hallmarks of mid century modern homes includes an emphasis on bringing the outside in. This can be seen in the earthy green tones of the decor, including the flower power Tiffany-style foyer lamp, as well as the architecture, which works to incorporate large windows, an open floor plan, and scenic views with lots of light.
A long and elegant living/dining room with an asymmetrical, double-sided exposed brick fireplace wall separates the true statement center of the entire house: a mini greenhouse extension. With stunning floor to ceiling windows, this quasi three season room serves as the glorified back exit starring two indoor garden areas and sliding glass doors to the patio. Skylights in this multi purpose room make it one of the brightest, most dazzling spaces in the entire home … but wait—there’s more!
The retro kitchen with green plaid wallpaper and scalloped window dressing will turn you into a domestic goddess in no time. Speckled formica countertops, gorgeous light fixtures, and vintage cabinet hardware are just a few of the extra touches making this eat-in kitchen an absolute treat.
Wild flower wallpaper pops against peach colored tile in one of the bathrooms, with bright purple tile, and entirely shingled walls rounding out the other two. The massive basement is an amazing blast from the past with a wonderful juxtaposition of lime green geometric cement bricks and wood paneled walls.
Did we mention the covered carport? From cute to quirky to show stopping—this three bedroom home is a complete and iconic vibe.
