Mid-Century Modern Real Estate For Sale: January 4th, 2019

What do a Miesian-inspired glass box, a fixer-upper in Michigan and a California A-Frame Cabin all have in common? They all boast great design, distinctly mid-century features and they are all included in this week's real estate roundup.

Miesian Glass Box in Olympia Fields, IL - 3,600 sqft. ($550,000)

Designed by a student of Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, architect H.P. Davis 'Deever' Rockwell, this is a fantastic modern house. Built in 1964, this glass walled home is deceptively large as it makes use of a steeply sloping lot to fit a lower walkout level accessed by a spiral staircase. Love the unique concrete columns, extreme open plan and abundance of space. It seems very reasonably priced, too.

Unique Modern in Palmyra, WI - 4,500 sqft. ($859,900)

This is a strikingly unique home with angled walls and plenty of glass. There's a range of spaces from bright and open to cosy and cave-like. Love the dramatic entry hallway and the hefty beams throughout. Set on 13 acres, this one has been on the market a while but it deserves another look.

All Original Ranch in Grand Prairie, TX - 2,334 sqft. ($185,000)

Bring your toolbox to this one as it definitely needs some work, but what a gorgeous mid-century modern house it could be! Plenty of original features give this home loads of character from the sunken living room, vaulted ceilings, abundant built-ins and superb fireplace. Yes, there may be roof issues, awful wallpaper and way to much teal carpet but at 185k this looks to be a sound buy with great potential.

Potential A-Frame Bargain in Carmel, CA - 1,262 sqft. (No price yet, pre-foreclosure)

We're still A-Frame crazy here so while it's not an official listing it is a potential one , since it is currently in the pre-foreclosure stage. The stunning A frame boasts cosy loft space, dormer sides built out to include kitchen and a large deck. Includes additional outbuildings. Heaps of character here and the light is to die for. Currently rented as a 2 unit property, but watch this property to see if it gets an official listing soon.

Budget Starter MCM in Oak Park, MI - 1,101 sqft. ($149,900)

Looking to jump into the property market with a mid century modern home of your own? This could be the one for you. With it's many original features this small home is worth a look. Love the angled fronts on the kitchen and bathroom cabinets, the off center room divider and check out those colorful pegboard closet doors in the basement! A fun open plan space with plenty of opportunity to make it your own.
