    I wonder if the house had steel casement windows originally?

    Lovin’ all the Moderne lighting fixtures!

      Steel casements would certainly fit the context better! Probably not the best choice in North Dakota, however. The house is too sophisticated for the nondescript windows we see now. I like the lighting, too! I would prefer whatever was in the dining room originally to the present 60’s/70’s fixture. I suspect that most of the woodwork was originally varnished, but paint does not detract from this particular house. Great bathrooms and glass block windows!

    This is a fairly impressive early modernist house for 1930. The whole modernist movement only started in the 1920’s. To have a house of this caliber and this purely styled completed in 1930 in North Dakota is a bit impressive have to say. And it looks like it has survived quite well and in tact. Even the windows to me do not look that bad to me. Yes, they possibly were steel originally, but obviously a tough choice to keep in ND. It looks to me that they were fairly careful to replace them with something better suited and at least minimally reasonable. Just painting them out black, or replacing them with new modern windows that would look more like the originals would be relatively easy now.

    Only $295K for this? Almost makes me want to consider moving to ND! Almost…..

    Well, I’ve never visited North Dakota and never thought about living there but this house has so much to offer. As is my habit, my fingers are itching to see what’s under the carpet, much of which just may have been recently installed. I note the wrinkles in the carpeting in the room with that wonderful glass block wall, for example. And what’s under that new strip flooring??? I would have to find out. But what a treat to be able to start with the floor rather than aspiring to get there “someday.” Wonderful light fixtures. And those bathrooms! Especially the first one. Love them.

    I visited the listing and took a look at the outside. There is a tall and thick mature shelter belt around three sides of the property. On both of the neighbor sides, they also have an equally thick planting. Very nice and excellent for privacy. The trees appear to be at least predominately evergreen. Living here would feel like living in my own private park. Using the streetview, I could see that this is a neighborhood of trees. Wonderful.
