Mid-Century Modern Real Estate For Sale: March 23rd, 2018
We've got two great bargain mid-century modern properties, a colorful modern gem and a pair of post and beam beauties for you this week. Enjoy!
Early Minoru Yamasaki Design in Detroit, MI - 1,102 sqft. ($75,000)
Here's an opportunity to buy a bargain property designed by Detroit's premier Modernist architect Minoru Yamasaki, who is perhaps best known for designing the World Trade Center Towers. This simple 1953 building designed for the Joseph A. Sloan Dental Clinic is for sale for just $75k. The post and beam structure allows for adaptive reuse in two ways. It could easily serve as a 2 bed, 2 bath modern home. Alternatively, as it is zoned commercial, it could be used for a range of business purposes. We love the remaining original features: ample windows and natural light, room divider, light fixtures and original tiled bathroom.
Fred Bassetti Gem on Mercer Island, WA - 2,200 sqft. ($1,350,000)
Warm woods and lots of natural light make this house in the forest a pleasure to experience. Practical porte cochere and split level entrance set the tone for an open plan exercise in modern living. If you can look past the ill fitting staging furniture you'll see the fantastic bones this house has.
Post and Beam home in Lakeville, CT - 1,499 sqft. ($315,000)
Picturesque setting for a classic mid century modern home design. 1972 open plan home with great beams, tongue and groove ceiling and all original features. We love the floor to ceiling windows, kitchen, warm woods and large deck.
Bargain Modern Fixer in Sunnyside, WA - 1,428 sqft. ($149,000)
This house needs quite a bit of work but what a house it could be! We love the open central area with floor to ceiling glass on both sides and brick fireplace. The south-facing rear has a balcony along the entire length overlooking the ample back yard. Clerestory windows keep the bedrooms private and the lower level is full walkout. Loads of potential!
Colorful Modern in Corpus Christi, TX - 2,694 sqft. ($289,900)
There is plenty to like about this home designed by John M. Olson, AIA: Front facade with colorful character, some of the best looking mature trees we've seen in a while, unique interior wood paneling and a fantastic collection of vintage furniture. The interior features a range of spaces from cosy, intimate front living areas with warm paneling to light-filled rooms looking out onto the backyard. Original cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom.
