Real estate-obsessed readers of Upstater know that we love a Mid-Century Modern home. Give us a wall of glass, some wood paneling, and a kitchen filled with avocado-colored appliances made in the 1960s, and we are all a-flutter. However, sometimes, in order to find the coolest Mid-Century Modern homes on the market, you have to scratch below the surface. A quick trip around the listings will often reveal homes that look like this on the outside. Note the Ranch style design, common in those 1950s-1970s Mid-Mods we love so very much:

Stay tuned for more this week on Upstater…
