My tuppence worth.
Folks who like MCM would ideally like to:
1. Live in an MCM house
2. Surrounded by MCM furniture and other MCM elements
but sometimes where they live (location) means that #1 is difficult to impossible.
However, #2 is possible in most houses and apartments. Check out Atomic Ranch's books, such as
and you will see some great interiors.
We lived in Boston (twice) where MCMs are rare but that did not stop us having MCM-influenced interiors.
Regarding your house, the Realtor lists it as "Contemporary" which is what it probably is compared to other more traditional houses in your area. As johnnyapollo states, the portico entrance is the element that stops it looking more like an MC-Ranch but I note that it is tied into the roof so changing that would require funds.
So the decision you need to make is whether you will be happy with living with MCM furniture and other MCM elements in what seems to be a spacious house with lots of natural light.
As robbhouston's list shows, there are lots you can do with the interior and you just need to get past the prior decorating choices of the owners and envisage the interior as a blank canvas that you can "paint" your MCM designs on.
