Dan Duckham Masterpiece in Lauderdale by the Sea, FL - 2,954 sqft. ($948,888)
Dan Duckham began practicing architecture in 1959 in Florida, and he was heavily inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rudolph, Alfred Browning Parker and the idea of an organic architecture. All of those influences are evident in this 1963 home found in Southern Florida. Built around a central courtyard with a pool, this home boasts unusual shapes, an interior staircase leading up over a koi pond and lots of windows letting in natural light. There's a cabana, an outdoor kitchen and everything you could need for entertaining. It's in pristine condition and is clearly well cared for, which helps explain the almost $1 million price point.

Glenn Q. Johnson Gem in Saint Petersburg, FL - 1,460 sqft. ($425,000)
This 1954 home designed by architect Glenn Q. Johnson is described in the listing as a living work of art, and for once it isn't a realtor's exaggeration. This home truly is a masterpiece, boasting a pleasing but unusual triangular design. Vaulted ceilings, ample windows and lots of outdoor living spaces make it feel akin to a treehouse -but with all the amenities and features you'd expect from a home. Despite some Ocala block walls being painted a strange color, the house is in great condition and looks to be move-in ready.

Robert Metcalf Original in Ann Arbor, MI - 2,966 sqft. ($989,000)
This 1958 home designed by Robert Metcalf has been lovingly restored and was recently given the Historic Preservation Award by the city of Ann Arbor. Plenty of original wood paneling remains, along with a number of original built-ins. The price is high, but the home has certainly been cared for in recent years and retains much of its mid-century charm.
FLW Inspired Home in New Milford, NJ - 3 bed/2.5 bath ($449,000)
This home is clearly inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. The flat roof, Cherokee red exterior and interior wood paneling are all hallmarks of a mid-century modern residence. The built-in sofa by the fireplace is a stunning feature, and there looks to be original wood sliding doors leading to extra storage off the kitchen and in the hallways. The house doesn't look like it has been updated recently, but that just means more original features still remain.
Lakefront Ocala Block Home in Tallahassee, FL - 2,509 sqft. ($250,000)
The combination of exposed beams and Ocala block make this an interesting and appealing 1968 home. There's a nice mix of textures and materials, including floors featuring red brick pavers. High ceilings and sliding glass doors connect you to the outdoor space, which happens to be over a full acre. It's a lakefront property with a wraparound deck, and it is adjacent to National Forest.
