5347 MacArthur Boulevard
This Week’s Find is a Mid-Century home that evokes a time of mini dresses, Vespas and Mods.
This five-bedroom house was built along MacArthur Boulevard in 1969, the same year that the Brady Bunch hit the small screen. The exterior has large, engraved red front doors and sections of overhanging roof, and there are so many trees on the massive 6,923 square-foot lot, that the house almost gets swallowed up.
The interior looks a bit more modern, and a recent renovation updated the first floor. The marble tile in the kitchen and the floating staircase along a wall of windows add a more contemporary touch. The kitchen has space for cushy seating as well as an island, and there is a long, 450 square-foot, screened-in porch along the side of the house. There are several decks off of the first and second floors that look onto the yard.
Some bedrooms and the bathrooms still look a little dated and may not have gotten quite the same attention as the living areas, but the two biggest bedrooms are appealing, with vaulted ceilings and access to another screened-in porch. More details and photos below.
