Midcentury Modern Ranch Will Satisfy Your Mad Yen for Nostalgia

This week’s Odessa for Under $500,000 is a midcentury modern ranch that has still retained all of its Don Draper-era charms in all the best ways.

Located in the coveted area of The Country Club, 2516 Bainbridge Dr. is a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath, 5,254-square-foot home that has all the bright, airy, light-filled rooms you’d expect from a midcentury modern ranch home, and all of the natural elements, too.

The home was built in 1961 and is currently priced at $498,000. And seriously, look at these pictures. If you squint, you can see Betty Draper lingering over a cup of coffee in the breakfast nook. Go into the den and Don is sitting on the couch, reading the paper with a Manhattan near his left hand. Check out that fireplace — it’s a showstopper.

This home looks to be an impeccably maintained time capsule waiting for someone who loves the look of the midcentury modern ranch home. Flagstone flooring through most of the living areas, along with ceramic tile and then carpet in the bedrooms. A spacious formal dining room can easily handle your family at Thanksgiving.

Can we talk about the master closet? It goes for miles, it seems. There are New York City apartments smaller than this master closet. You may want to buy this house just for the master closet alone.

And the yard. Did you see that yard? It’s a huge, lush green space that screams for a party (or a swing set if that’s where your life is at right now). There is plenty of entertaining to be done out there, and a covered patio to hide from the hottest part of the day.
