Modern in Rosendale, $429,900
This mid-century modern home is right on the main drag in Rosendale, although with 11 acres you might not have to worry so much about neighbors and traffic. Although I’m a sucker for sleek lines and Danish mod furniture and such, this place is still feeling more Brady Bunch than Frank Lloyd Wright to me, eyebrow windows and all. I do appreciate how the windows are arranged, smaller in front for privacy, longer in back to let the light in. I think they’ve done a good job making it feel contemporary — nice kitchen, for instance — and I think with another round of de-cheesing it could be pretty cool — take out the carpet, remove the Venetian blinds, etc. I think it’s quite a bit overpriced, considering a 40-acre property with four inhabitable buildings nearby is $799,000. If you want modern and you want Rosendale, I’d go see it and make a more modest offer. It’s been listed for at least three months. Stats on the jump.
