Recently, we wrote about the efforts of preservationists to get two Southfield neighborhoods placed on the National Register of Historic Places for their abundance of midcentury modern homes.

Well, one of those midcenturies recently hit the market. This 2,444-square-foot, four-bedroom home on River Crest Drive is listed with Thomas Styf of RE/MAX for $469,900.

Built in 1963, the one-story home has a classic midcentury modern look. It’s got a long, geometrical structure with repeating vaulted ceilings and a single hallway connecting all 16 rooms in the open floor plan. Plenty of natural light enters the house through its numerous windows, both wall-length and triangular.

The kitchen got a contemporary renovation and now comes with quartz countertops and new appliances. The master bathroom looks like it was redone as well—there’s a soaker tub and huge walk-in shower.

Other features include a large fireplace in the center of the den, oak hardwood floors, heated garage with epoxy floor, and finished basement.

Perhaps the most attractive part of this home is the way it integrates the natural environment on the one-acre lot. There’s a deck at the back of the home that overlooks a ravine and woods, creating a feeling of seclusion. Take a look for yourself.

A white sectional couch framed the den which has a small flatscreen TV and fireplace. A large window at the end of the room looks out to the woods.
The kitchen has two parallel white countertops. The cabinets are also white.
A dining room with a long wood table surrounded by metal chairs with black cushions. It connects to the kitchen as well as a large window looking out to the woods.
The master bedroom has a large bed with gray sheets and pillows. Again, a window looks out to the woods.
The bathroom has a double white sink and soaking tub. In the mirror reflection, you can see the walk-in shower with glass doors.
