Custom, Vintage 1960 MCM in Alexandria – $725K

I went to see this untouched 1960 custom mid-century modern home in Alexandria this past weekend. The 3 bedroom/2.5 bath is on a third of an acre corner lot right off King Street and just a couple miles from Old Town. Looks more like California, or nearby Hollin Hills, although there is nice Lustron Home down the block amid more traditional homes. The living room has slate floors, wood walls, clerestory windows and wall of glass leading out to the back patio. The kitchen has vintage mid-century lighting, an original Frigidaire wall oven and what looks like a tasty recipe for Butter Pecan Cookies painted right on the wall. Listed for $725K.
