This unique mid-century modern Ranch influenced by the Streamline Moderne style could be saved, but needs to be relocated.

Built in 1952, the single family Tufts-Hines House is a significant example of a “high-style” single-story Ranch dwelling. The fairly standard Ranch exterior displays simulated stone cladding, and features throughout the house epitomize the latest in early to mid-20th century materials, technology and design. The house consists of an open floor plan kitchen, dining room and living room. There are two bedrooms, one bathroom, a den, large breezeway or summer living room connected to a two car garage. The kitchen has metal cabinets and Formica counters with metal edges. Streamline Moderne features include kitchen display shelves and end cabinets with rounded edges and the use of 12” Carrera glass or Pittsburg glass tiled kitchen wall sheathing. The bathroom also has glass tile walls and a curved clear glass dressing table. The majority of the exterior is clad in Permastone-simulated masonry, with some areas of wood shingles. There is a variety of windows including a tri-part prominent picture window, and double hung and horizontal sliding windows. There are two large, floor-to-ceiling windows located in the breezeway and sunroom. Built-in architectural details throughout the house include custom fabricated Permastone planters inside and out, two Permastone fireplaces, original light fixtures, aesthetic interior planting areas, and wrought iron rail features. This building is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.

This sale is for the house only and does not include any land, other structures or improvements on the parcel. The minimum bid is $500.00 and shall include a proposal describing relocation and preservation plans to ensure long-term protection of the character defining features of the structure in accordance with the Secretary of the Interior’s “Standards for Rehabilitation and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings.”
