Perfectly Pink: A Peek Inside the Quirkiest Mid-Century Gem

Did you know October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month? This radically important campaign seeks to increase awareness, raise funds for research, and overall support those affected by breast cancer. In honor of this (always very pink-themed) annual event, we thought we’d feature a property that screams “PINK” (or at least "coral" in the case of 8002 Belle Glade Blvd).

Needless to say, this is not the sort of house you can pass by without twisting your head around and taking a second look.

Bearing a striking silhouette and gloriously mid-century architectural details, 8002 Belle Glade Blvd is a surprisingly affordable ($285,000) gem located in Selma, TX (perched between New Braunfels and San Antonio).

Though it’s actually considered a recent build (2005), this home’s undeniably 1950’s vibe is reminiscent of that Mad-Men-chic look everyone is currently obsessed with. Mid-century architecture is usually characterized by flat roofs (✓), asymmetrical profiles (✓), and varying levels (✓).

And, in case you were worried this home’s fascinating details stopped there, the interest continues throughout 8002 Belle Glade Blvd’s 2,641 square feet. Boasting an open floor plan, clean lines, and tons of natural light, this home’s common spaces are perfect for gathering. Plus, the circular fireplace can be viewed from multiple rooms!

In keeping with the “plenty of natural light” theme, 8002 Belle Glade Blvd’s ample windows feature expansive panes of glass, allowing light to enter the room from multiple angles (an important mid-century architecture feature, as it integrates indoor and outdoor spaces).

Head up the uniquely circular staircase and find three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a large bonus room that can be used as an office or studio! 8002 Belle Glade Blvd’s open floor plan is perfect for anyone looking for flexibility. (Plus, look at those gorgeous wood floors!)

Another thing we love about 8002 Belle Glade Blvd? Emphasis on outdoor living. Featuring plenty of salmon-colored porch space (as well as rooftop leisure areas), this home prioritizes “integration with nature,” which was very important to mid-century architects. These spaces seek to marry the resident to the outdoors, emphasizing the surrounding landscape.

Speaking of “emphasizing the landscape,” 8002 Belle Glade Blvd is nothing if not perfectly situated. Nestled atop a hill between the Texas Hill Country (to the west) and the great fertile plains (to the east), this home (and its gloriously champagne-pink rooftop) was made to take advantage of these killer views.
