It's mind-blowing to think that two years worth of buyers tramped through this 1956 home without seeing its potential. But this was years before the ranch-style house revival.

Of the above interior, Samon notes, "The living room, anchored by a thoroughly redesigned fireplace, is a sophisticated mix of color and form."

Note the generous horizontals in the fireplace apron and mantel. These long, expansive lines are one indicator of the ranch style.
