Mid-Century Duplex Potential

An investment property needs to strike a balance between being easily maintained and attracting long-term tenants. Installing heavy landscape edging, defining linear plant beds, and using mulches such as large rocks all keep the landscape maintenance straight-forward while playing up the mid-century lines of the building. With only the exterior addition of entry overhangs, new paint, and period-specific aluminum posts, the once boring rental becomes playful and boldly reclaims its mid-century modern title. The entry color, limbing up the front yard's trees, and the addition of unit numbers and porch lights all enhance the safety of the rental property as well.
