Own the House of the Future from 1948! This Lustron House (serial # 01093) is one of roughly 1,200 left in the United States.

Designed by Carl Strandlund in response to the post WWII housing shortage, this retro-mod house is the original cutting edge in efficiency. Featuring built in cabinets, closets and storage complete with hideaway doors and a radiant heating system, this house will please anyone looking for something unique. Recently featured by the Ohio Historical Society and displayed in the New York Museum of Modern Art this house is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
