It looks like Morningside's iconic, midcentury modern, Rufus Nims-designed Jetsons House, after being listed for $1.875 million about a year ago, was taken off the market at some point, unsold. Although in a great neighborhood, and oozing with futuristic, modern flair, the house needs work, is rather small, and is on a rather humdrum lot. In this soft market, perhaps almost 2 mil was a tad much?
The elevated house in Morningside known by neighbors as the 'Jetsons House' because of its retro-futuristic appearance is back on the market, listed for $1.875 million, two years after the house sold for $1.5 million. Located at 5261 NE 5th Avenue, it's looking good, having been cleaned out and spruced up a little, showing off lots of original details by architect Rufus Nims from its construction in 1949.
