Stunning Subterranean Home in River Falls, WI - 2,236 sqft. ($285,000)

While we feature many unique homes here, this one may be our favorite (at least for today!). Designed by Mike McGuire and built in 1974, this is a fantastic house. Look beyond the Hobbit-esque entry and you'll see a light-filled, spacious and masterly-crafted home. The details are exquisite from the superb built-in sofas and cabinetry to the lighting and 3 wood burning fireplaces. Add to this the level changes, fantastic curved walls and a wooded 3.47 acre lot. If you're looking for a one of a kind property, BUY THIS HOME!

Mid-Century Modern Time Capsule in Topeka, KS - 1,620 sqft. ($165,000)

This untouched 1953 gem has everything we love about mid century modernism: light, glass, warm materials, original features and that lived-in look that gives so much character. Filled with period furniture, this is a well loved home that oozes charm. At 165k, it seems like a great deal. Open house on Sunday 10/28.

Architect's Home in Evansville, IN - 1,412 sqft. ($155,000)

Designed and built by Ralph Robert Knapp in 1952, this house is a great piece of modernism. With a flat roof, carport, huge floor to ceiling windows, a massive stone fireplace and plenty of built ins, this home ticks all the boxes and all the elements work together really well.

Glass Wall Stunner in Lake Charles, LA - 2,788 sqft. ($720,000)

This 1965 post and beam home sits on a 1.43 acre beautiful lot with almost 300 feet of Bayou waterfront. The walls of glass make the most of the view but facing north means the house doesn't heat up too much from direct sun. The limited interior photos show an all-original state, which we love. Wood paneling and concrete floors give this house a great set of bones to work with.

Post and Beam Heaven in Kent, WA - 1,810 sqft. ($520,000)

This home was designed by my favorite PNW architect, Paul Hayden Kirk. The house has a beautiful structure, at once strong and light, imposing but transparent. Light filled and open plan, the beams draw your eyes outwards to the aptly named Scenic Way. One of the best and I'm surprised at how affordable it appears. Can you say 'bidding war'?

Bonus Listing! This one was sent in to us by the homeowner. Located in Weston, Connecticut, this home was built in 1965 by a Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice and is for sale at $750,000. Check out the full listing HERE.
