It’s cool seeing how people update Mid-Century Modern homes today, but if you’ve ever wished you could go back in time and see what these houses looked like when they were first built, you’re in luck.

“In memory of his mother, who passed away last fall,” says listing agent Susan Rissover, one Amberley Village homeowner “completely re-did” the house he grew up in “and put it back together exactly like it was before.” Now, the five-bedroom brick ranch (built in 1965 and purchased by his parents in 1990) with a vaulted wood, glass, and stone front entry, plus three full and two half-bathrooms, is on the market in search of a buyer.

The home boasts $100,000 in updates (security cameras, a lawn sprinkler system, heated garage with epoxy flooring, new generator, new electric panel, new driveway, and Pella replacement windows), but we’re tickled pink—the same color, incidentally, as the master bath tile—that it still has so many original decor details in place. Our favorites include the avocado green laminate countertops and custom table top in the kitchen; white onyx tile and decorative metal gate in the front hall; the original pristine powder blue carpet in the living room that was cleaned and re-stretched, plus smoky glass panels on the wall; and wood paneling and the original game table in the family room. And it’s safe to say Rissover’s marketing the home appropriately, with the hashtag #amberleygroovy.
