Mid-Century Modern Real Estate For Sale: February 15th, 2019
This week we are featuring several homes of significant architectural merit. These mid-century modern homes need buyers to help save and restore them! The Keck home near Chicago is most at risk due to its lot value and the stacked stone home in Oklahoma needs a buyer looking for a remote retreat property. The house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's grandaughter also needs a dedicated buyer to restore it. Please share these properties widely to help us find some sensitive buyers.
At-Risk Keck & Keck Home in Dune Acres, IN - 3,164 sqft. ($625,000)
This 1957 home by architect George Frederick Keck has it all. Light filled, double height living space and cosier fireplace area all over looking 5 acres of beautiful dune landscape. This is an all-original house with an interesting layout in need of some love. It's being sold as-is and we're afraid this one is at high risk of being destroyed for the land/location.
Organic Architecture in Cordell, OK - 3,758 sqft. ($175k auction)
If you've been looking for a retreat that includes plenty of land and a piece of outstanding architecture, this may be it. Set on over 17 acres, this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired 1974 design has some wonderful features and details of great craftsmanship. Check out the woodwork above the entry, the cantilevered built in desks and stacked stonework. Interesting angles throughout, it looks to have been empty for a while but also looks VERY original. Check out the kitchen appliances. A dream project!
Elizabeth Ingraham Wright Fixer in Colorado Springs, CO - 2,854 sqft. ($400,000)
A very interesting 1963 house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's granddaughter in need of restoration. We love the lines, bands of clerestory windows, loads of built in storage and bookshelves and last of all, a stunning brick fireplace. The floor plan looks a little too open so we'd check out the original plans to see if there were some room dividers/screens to break up the sight lines a bit. Another great project!
Character Filled Modern in New Haven, CT - 1,384 sqft. ($147,900)
Cute 1955 mid century modern home with great lines, built ins, fireplace, sheltered patio and original features throughout. Attractive price tag and plenty of potential.
Post and Beam in Thomasville, GA - 2,583 sqft. ($425,000)
Great post and beam 1954 home with walls of glass throughout on a 3.7 acre lot. The home looks to be in great condition and is packed with original features and finishes. Definitely worth checking out.
