Mid Century Modern Real Estate For Sale: Aug 17th, 2018
Mid-century modern homes can be expensive, but they don't have to be. In this week's roundup, we feature homes at a variety of price points. You can snag a beautiful post and beam house in Michigan for $147,000 or check out a fascinating MCM gem for sale in Oklahoma asking $161,500. There are also homes located in Pennsylvania, Washington and Connecticut.
Spacious MCM in Cresco, PA - 2,700 sqft. ($249,000)
Beautiful setting aside, this 1964 mid century modern home has some really nice original features including floor to ceiling windows on both upper and lower floors, a massive stone fireplace, great beams and an original glass screen. Priced at $249k, this large home includes 5 acres of wooded land. Bright, open plan and apparently all original, this looks like a great buy.
Post and Beam in Kirkland, WA - 2,040 sqft. ($748,000)
Interesting cruciform plan here with a 1962 post and beam home in Kirkland, east of Seattle. Lots of light and nicely proportioned rooms, this one could use a sensitive approach to add a bit more warmth as it has been smothered in grey. Love the cantilevered volume, the central fireplace and the drive through carport.
All Original MCM in Chickasha, OK - 1,897 sqft. ($161,500)
Although this one has been on the market for a while, it is still a great find with many original mid century modern features to feast your eyes on. Check out the front window wall, the decorative concrete block brise soleil, the classic cone fireplace and the many built ins. The corner lot and carport location gives this 1968 home a nicely sized back yard too.
Private Modern in Ridgefield, CT - 2,697 sqft. ($735,000)
While the photos for this listing are not great, they do show just enough to see that there is a very nice modern house here. Set on just over an acre of lightly wooded land on a private road, this minimalist two volume structure makes a sharp statement amongst more traditional homes. I like the way the double garage is painted black to underline the floating quality of the floor above and the clean lined fireplace sets the tone which is followed cohesively throughout the home. Pops of color could be introduced with some carefully chosen period furniture.
Post and Beam Fixer in Monroe, MI - 1,623 sqft. ($147,000)
Another very private home, this one in need of a bit of restoration. Set on a .4 acre lot, this one is surrounded by a 6' privacy fence. The carport is separate, giving a nice usable south facing front yard that the main living area looks on to. Nice redwood paneling, fireplace, built ins and original kitchen. Built in bar in the basement is pretty cool, too!
One of our previously featured home listings got an update with new photos, and the house looks even more interesting than we first thought. Check out this HUGE mid-century gem in Arkansas on the market for $250,000.
