The housing market on the SouthCoast has been heating up and new properties are hitting the market every day. Some are stunning homes you can't wait to see inside, while others may not blow you away from the street.

Driving by this mid-century home in the West End of New Bedford, you might not look twice.

Once you see what the owners have done inside, it could be a different story.

This three-bedroom home on Hawthorn Street recently hit the market for $569,000, but with the amazing mix of old and new this house holds, it probably won't last long.

Often homes from the 1950s can have dated features -- old cabinets, weird trim, carpet that has been there since the disco era. But in this Hawthorn Street home, the older features have a much more modern feel.

The current owners embraced the vintage vibes of the home and chose to extenuate many of them with a more modern take.

There are silver trimmed shelves in the kitchen that hark back to diners of the '50s and funky '60s-era green tile in the home office. The basement manages to combine both those epic decades. Upstairs, you'll find a hidden bar and built-in record player shelving.

It's a house almost too cool to live in. Yet someone new is going to get to call this place home.

Before they do, take a peek inside to see all the cool features for yourself and maybe get some decorating ideas for your own mid-century abode.
