Got your eye out for that perfect modernist home? We’ve done a little digging and found a few listings in mid-century modern real estate that are not to be missed! Here’s some lovely houses that stand out from across the country:
2843 Avenel Street in Silver Lake: $650,000
One of ten units in Gregory Ain’s 1947 Avenel Housing Cooperative, this 1,114-square-foot home looks much the same as it did 66 years ago. Dubbed a “modern time capsule” by Curbed LA, the 3-bedroom home is a beautiful example of Ain’s original vision of coop living.
4941 Calvin Avenue in Tarzana: $849,000
The 1961 A. Quincy Jones home boasts a spacious 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. Overall, for a lovely mid-century modern that is in good condition, not to mention the superstar designer, the price tag can’t be beat.
2200 Hercules Dr in Los Angeles: $3,695,000
370 Beach Street, Highland Park: $1,295,000
It’s been called the Ben Rose House and the Ferris Bueller House, but either way, the 1953 A. James Speyer masterpiece is the picture of mid-century modern. The price has been chopped from 1.5M to 1.295M and keeps dropping, so chances are it will get snapped up sooner rather than later.
4 Graymoor Lane in Olympia Fields: $379,900
Although it may not look like an exemplary modernist home, this 1959 4-bedroom was designed by one of Chicago’s most popular architects of the time – Edward Dart. The spacious 3,500 square foot home is nestled in an exotic acre-wide tropical garden.
1357 Brook Forest Dr: $650,000
Recently renovated from floor to high beams, it’s no surprise that this 1956 house has been featured in modernist publications like Atomic Ranch. Since its previous owners went to every measure to ensure that the gorgeous wood-paneled walls, ceilings, floors, and fixtures all remain true to its mid-century modern birth, the three-bedroom home is breathtaking, inside and out.
3052 W Pine Valley NW Road: $1,195,000
Another meticulously-renovated masterpiece, this Ken Johnson residence sports the price tag to prove it. In order to retain the original vision of its popular mid-century architect, the owners went to great trouble to carefully match the original patterns, textures, and materials of the home. The result is a stunning combination of natural stone, wood, and marble textures that come together in a beautifully laid-out floor plan.
