Built in 1958, this house has only been home for two families in its 60 years. It had been well-maintained, but was in an aging condition when Andrea and Chris bought it; they were intent on restoring it to its former glory. Over six years, they shaped it into the beautiful relic of history it is. They furnished it only with original vintage furniture thanks to long searches, great discoveries, and bargain prices. They hired professionals for big projects, but almost every other home project was DIY. And it's not just the style that's remained intact — many of the home's original appliances still work! A true testament to the resiliency and simplicity of mid-century design.
