Fannin Terrace Midcentury Ranch Hits All the High Points

Chris Beckett and Pine & Beckett Realtors is not kidding around — this 1959 Midcentury Ranch in Fannin Terrace is indeed “hip of the hip,” making it the perfect pick for our Thursday Three Hundred for the week.

This three-bedroom, two-bath home at 2503 Terrace Ave. in the Fannin Terrace neighborhood of Midland has everything you look for in midcentury architecture — high ceilings, custom shelving, tons of windows and transoms, and, Beckett said, “original brass inlay Terrazzo floors.”

The 2,264 square foot home has a small office off the kitchen that is perfect for those days when you need to work from home, or as a quiet homework nook.

The open floor plan provides plenty of room for entertaining, with two living areas and a formal dining room. The spacious kitchen is open to the den, which means no pausing that movie while you make the popcorn refill.

A generously-sized master suite has plenty of light, and a master bath has seen an update, with a soaker tub, separate shower and plenty of counter space. The other two bedrooms are perfect for kids or guests, and the main bath has seen an update, too.

But as pretty as the house is on the inside, you’ll want to spend time on the outside, too. Beckett pointed out the “great entertaining backyard with in-ground heated pool, potting shed/pool house, and gorgeous trees.”

This Fannin Terrace stunner went on the market seven days ago, and is listed at $345,000.
