,This rare and colorfully restored midcentury modern home in St. Louis Park hit the market this week. Listed for $925,000, it's located at 8000 Westwood Hills Drive.

Why we love it: The house is one of just 24 Alcoa "Care-Free" homes β€” vibrant and colorful model houses constructed in the late 1950s to show off the versatility of aluminum.

  • The St. Louis Park residence is the only one in Minnesota, according to Racket, which first reported the listing.
  • Unique features include the bright purple exterior and blue roof, colorful kitchen, walls of sliding glass doors, a spacious courtyard, and breezeway.

Reality check: Don't start packing β€” as of Thursday afternoon, the seller has accepted an offer contingent on inspection.

Layout: The 3,690-square-foot home has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a fully finished basement, plus a two-car attached garage.

Interior features: Open floor plan, vaulted redwood ceilings, stainless steel appliances, fireplaces, and exercise room.

Exterior features: The home sits on .51 acres and has a courtyard with a patio and breezeway.
