Restore Raleigh’s only surviving Lustron house to its sleek mid-century splendor! Fewer than 2500 Lustron homes were built between 1947 and 1950 to answer America’s post-WWII housing shortage.

The Raleigh Lustron was manufactured in 1949 and  is the Desert Tan two-bedroom Deluxe Winchester model featuring prefabricated enameled metal-panel walls and roof, aluminum tripartite casement windows, built-in pass-through metal China cabinet, bedroom vanity, and trellis downspout porch post. Moved from Gotno Farm on Buffalo Road to a super-convenient downtown Raleigh location. Assembly required.
