You did great! That house appears to have been immaculately maintained by someone who really loved it. The paneling, room dividers, obscured glass, fireplace -- all wonderful. I know you'll enjoy being the new steward of the home.

Thanks for the kind words, the paneling and room dividers are mahogany and there is another fireplace just like this one downstairs.

Kolob, with a name like that you must have Utah ties, no?

Wow! It looks like it has a lot of great details, and it appears to be in terrific shape.

Great house!

About exposing your home and thoughts on the internet: The truth is, the only folks who are going to see them are those that are interested. I think you can restrict viewing your photos to only those you invite. This place is known for being friendly. So share away. We will only be a little mean if you decide to redo the bath and install vessel sinks. :D

Some pics of the kitchen and baths would be nice. Realtors almost never show those. For those of us "into" the period, they really tell the story. Of course in your case, the details are all over the place!

First thing I thought was that your house was the one they used as a pattern for the house in 'The Incredibles'.

Thanks again everyone, I added some more pictures. Keep in mind that we just moved in and have not repainted or put everything away. The yellow/ tan wall color is one of the first things we are getting rid of.

Welcome. Fantastic home. So rare to find a "time capsule" like this one. I'm sure you'll do it proud.

Look forward to sharing thoughts and pics with you. You'll likely be getting an influx of "contact" requests on Flickr. These are all from MCM friends. Send mine... now.

Beautiful home.

I wish I could have found a home like this to be my first home. Instead, I got what someone here called a MCCC: mid century cape cod.

Enjoy it! Take the time to live in it before deciding what to renovate or restore. It's worth it.

Really, really nice. I like the asymetric roof arrangement, just fantastic.

And a great view!

When you settle in, photo the neighborhood.

I see other nice homes around you.
