Snag This Freshened-Up Midcentury Time Capsule in Georgia for $435K

By Kathryn M.
Built in 1957, the airy Eichler-esque home spans over 3,000 square feet and comes fully furnished with period-correct decor.

It is not every day that a turnkey midcentury pops up on the market for less than $500,000—but that’s the case in Rossville, Georgia. Nestled on a tree-lined street along the historic Missionary Ridge, the single-story home was built in the late 1950s and has since received meticulous care.

Tucked away on a nearly 1.5-acre lot in Rossville, Georgia, the 1957 midcentury offers plenty of living space—both inside and out. In addition to the 3,115-square-foot interior, the home has an expansive landscaped lot with verdant vegetation that ensures privacy. There is also an attached two-car garage. 

Upon arrival, a generously sized entry hall opens up to one of the home’s three living areas. A large skylight above the beams draws in ample natural light, brightening the neutral color palette. 

Measuring 3,115 square feet, the Eichler-inspired abode is an eclectic time capsule full of original detailing and period-correct furnishings—and all of it is included in the sale. An open layout unites the living areas, which are warmly illuminated thanks to the large windows peppered throughout. 

Another view of the living area showcases several original features, including exposed beams, the painted brick fireplace, and a floor-to-ceiling glass wall.

As part of the most recent renovation, which took place three years ago, the home now features all new hardwood flooring and lighting, as well as a new metal roof. The kitchen, the four bedrooms, and four baths all received a top-down remodel. In total, the home offers three separate gathering rooms—one with a contemporary fireplace, and another with a pool table. 

The original terra-cotta flooring is still on display in one of the three primary living rooms. 

A covered deck adjacent to one of the living rooms includes a fire pit, and is well-suited for entertaining large and small groups alike. Additionally, an outdoor kitchen comes complete with concrete countertops, a gas grill, and an oversized sink. Scroll ahead to see more of the home, currently on the market for $435,000. 

The open-concept kitchen features all new cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances. 

Across from the wall of appliances and cabinetry is additional counter space and bar-stool seating. A long picture window above the sink overlooks the landscaped front yard. 

A cozy reading nook awaits down the hall, offering a quiet place to rest, as well as direct access to the covered deck. 

The deck features all new flooring, a fire pit, and plenty of plush seating.

Sliding glass doors connect the deck to one of the home’s four bedrooms.

All of the four bathrooms are remodeled, and come with new fixtures, lighting, and flooring.

The partially covered kitchen sited on the back of the home extends the living spaces outdoors, and features all new appliances—including both a gas grill and Kamado Joe egg grill. A concrete countertop and bar-stool seating create an idyllic spot for casual al fresco dining. 

191 S Mission Ridge Drive in Rossville, Georgia, is currently listed for $435,000 by Teah Hicks of Faircloth Realty.
