A veritable time capsule, this unchanged gem was designed by Ted Smith, a renowned mid-century architect, and custom built by Rainey & Bourne, notable builders of their era. Meticulously maintained for the past 62 years by its current owner, its open living spaces, walls of windows and a crisp neutral backdrop set the stage for this Brady Bunch abode. It features a large living room with vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows. The classic kitchen is genuinely original! Upstairs are three bedrooms and a timeless hallway bath. Downstairs is a family room with a walk-out to a private patio, a full bath and laundry room. There's also a carport with storage and covered walkway to the house. Situated on a picture-perfect corner lot, this home is just across the street from Miller Nature Area, and an easy walk to Veterans Memorial Park, West Park, the shops at Maple Village and downtown Ann Arbor.
