A colorful condo that’s been essentially uninhabited since 1974 is this week’s most popular home on realtor.com®. Decked out in groovy shades of green, the one-of-a-kind time capsule mesmerized us, and we wrote about it last week.
Apparently you were equally impressed—your clicks propelled this ’70s hit to the top of the charts. The listing agent for the leisure suit-come-to-life pad was also aware of the intense interest.
“Since I posted the link to the article on my Facebook, I’ve gotten a lot of likes,” says Nancy Maranan. “We currently have multiple offers.”
She says a couple of interested buyers intend to keep the 1970s interiors intact—a development we’re thrilled by. Photographers have also reached out to Maranan to set up shoots in the condo, but she says a surplus of shutterbugs would get in the way of potential buyers who want a tour.
“We’re looking for buyers,” Maranan says with a laugh.
Stepping outside the time capsule, you also clicked on a sleek mountain retreat in North Carolina, a fabulous A-frame perched somewhat precariously on an Arkansas mountainside, and a top-to-bottom renovation in Louisville complete with an on-trend black exterior.
Soak it all in while you can by reveling in all of this week’s most popular homes.
Why it’s here: Buyers searching for wide-open spaces should take a look at this recently remodeled farmhouse-style ranch built in 1956. The three-bedroom home sits on a 4.5-acre lot that backs up to a county park. It includes a barn, detached two-car garage, covered front porch, and hot tub.
Why it’s here: This dramatic Georgian-style Colonial was built in 1929 and is being sold as a short sale. The price looks like a bargain, and the listing photos show no evidence of major structural issues. The 2.5-story, four-bedroom brick home features hardwood floors, slate roof, remodeled kitchen, gas heat, and central air conditioning.
Why it’s here: Right on trend, this all-black exterior is sure to catch a buyer’s eye. Originally built in 1900, this three-bedroom home was recently renovated. Now a modern, industrial showplace, it features matte-black tile, original hardwood floors, black cabinets, concrete and butcher block countertops, and a kitchen with a garage door that opens to the backyard for entertaining.
Why it’s here: Nestled on a quarter-acre in the Pisgah National Forest, this shapely retreat is just a few minutes from downtown Asheville. Constructed by a local builder who specializes in modern design, the 1,500-square-foot home features sliding glass doors and windows with views of the surrounding forest. Currently, the home is a wildly popular short-term rental on Airbnb.
Why it’s here: It’s a fun ’50s time capsule with a funky front door that hints at the potential for this rambler to be revived as something spectacular. Sitting on a corner lot, this three-bedroom house includes a basement with half-bath, a large rec room, and plenty of storage. We particularly love the original cabinetry in the untouched kitchen. Ample windows fill the home with light—and there’s even a space for shuffleboard.
Why it’s here: It’s in a spot that’s become famous thanks to HGTV’s popular show “Home Town.” Sitting on nearly a half-acre in Country Club Hills, this three-bedroom home has been kept in immaculate condition since it was built in 1997. Highlights include granite kitchen counter tops, new laminate wood flooring, and new carpet on the second floor.
Why it’s here: The design of this impressive 8,100-square-foot industrial estate was inspired by a 300-year-old sycamore tree. Built in 2015 as a health retreat, the home has water flowing around it from an 1840s springhouse. That spring is used to heat the floors and fills the on-site fitness center’s aromatherapy sauna, indoor spa, plunge pool, and saltwater pool. Outside there’s a treehouse, zip line, pole barn, and walking trails throughout the 11-acre property.
Why it’s here: This 1906-built Colonial is picture-perfect. The five-bedroom residence has plenty of room for guests with more than 5,600 square feet of living space. The electrical, plumbing, and heating systems, roof and windows, floors, siding, and more were recently updated. The home’s nearly 2-acre lot includes a pool and woods to explore.
Why it’s here: Take just one look at this A-frame perched on a hillside, and you’ll want to see more. Built in 2018 with three floors and a rooftop deck, this light-filled property is being sold with 2 acres of land. The interior of this fabulous four-bedroom residence is filled with clean lines, which let the views of the surrounding woods take center stage.
Why it’s here: The decor caused a click frenzy. Built in 1974, this 1,800-square-foot condo has been mostly uninhabited since. Professionally decorated in daring shades of green, it’s an ode to ’70s excess. The carpet looks immaculate, the wallpaper looks vibrant, and the custom furnishings show no signs of age.
