Atomic Ranches in Bizarro World

This isn't a real estate blog so I don't talk about house listings too often. But I happened to see a listing in Crestview, a mid-century neighborhood in Austin, and I had to share because it's the Bizarro version of our atomic ranch.

It's a single story ranch with a similar mid-century modern color palette, just reversed.

It also has a Crestview Door, a Pasadena in green instead of our Westhaven in blue. And they have the same mid-century modern house numbers that I bought last weekend for a little DIY project (which I'll post about soon... hopefully.)

The interior mid-century paint color is the same shade of gray as our.

Their mid-century outdoor patio looks almost exactly like our carport, which we're still planning on making a livable space.

Something we don't have though, and I might steal the idea, is lights around the top.

I also might also steal the idea of painting the ceiling a bright mid-century modern color. That really makes it pop.

It's also a 3/2, like our place, but kitchen and bathrooms don't look much like ours. You can see the rest of the pictures here.


  1. Great house...I like a lot of the things they did to it.

    1. Yeah, they did some interesting things and some things that I like so much I'm going to copy. I really like the kitchen floor.

  2. Fabulous use of color, especially in the kitchen! Kitchen floor is fantastic!
