Property We Covet

After World War II, Americans eager to start families struck out for the suburbs, where they erected open-concept homes with informal living rooms, high-tech kitchens, and massive windows framing patios and yards — the same features, in other words, that today’s homeowners crave. What most buyers don’t want, of course, is a house that looks largely as it did during the Truman administration, which is why this 1952 Cape Elizabeth property is such a find. Thoroughly updated with wood floors, a neutral color scheme, and a renovated kitchen and bathrooms, while retaining its home historic charm (note the wood paneling and large stone fireplace), the home feels more like a nod to a fascinating era than a full-on embrace.
