Property of the Week: $525,000 Mid-Century Bi-Level

It features mid-century furniture staged by Becca Black of Bex Vintage.



 

Where it is

6608 18A Street S.E. in Ogden

The history

This five bedroom was designed and built by its original owner in 1961. 

What to love

Much of 6608's mid-century charm has been preserved by the current owners. It has warm wood-paneled ceilings, large wooden beams, concrete block feature walls, two wood burning brick fireplaces, large windows and an open-concept floor plan. The home was staged with mid-century furniture by Becca Black of Bex Vintage and many of the pieces can be purchased from her website.

What to consider

It's easy to forget that 6608 is more than 50 years old because its mid-century design aesthetic makes it feel surprisingly modern.
