Splendid homes worth ogling

In our House
of the Day column
, we cover a plethora of gorgeous homes, from
elegant Gilded Age mansions to show-stopping new builds. But time
and time again, some of our favorite homes for sale are of the
midcentury variety.

They range in style and authenticity; some homes built in the
1950s and 1960s have been tastefully updated, while others are time
capsules for the midcentury purist. We also write about midcentury
modern homes from around the country—not just in ultra-hip
epicenters like Palm Springs—and at all price points. Whether
you’re on the hunt for a new pad or just like to window shop,
here are five swoon-worthy midcentury homes on the market to check
out right now.

A Connecticut home by a Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice

Price: $625,000

Details: This five-bedroom,
two-and-a-half-bath home
in Weston, Connecticut, was designed
and built in 1965 by architect Allan Gelbin. Gelbin was an
apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin East in Spring Green,
Wisconsin, from 1949 to 1953, before establishing his own practice
in 1957 in Connecticut.

The focal point of the design is an expansive living room and
dining room that features a stone fireplace. Clerestory windows let
in light, while wooden ceiling panels and built-in bookshelves add
coziness. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows showcase a wraparound deck
and views of the 2.25-acre property, and the master suite also
offers panoramic views and access to a terrace. You can see more

A cute ranch in Houston

Price: $219,900

Details: Built in 1957 in Houston, Texas,
three-bedroom, two-bath ranch
is located in the
Glenbrook Valley Historic District
, a planned community with
the city’s largest and most intact neighborhood of ranch and
midcentury modern homes.

The 1,844-square-foot house sits on a large lot and its current

enter the home through a light pink entryway before walking into an
open living space. The vaulted living room features a corner
fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto the
patio. The original kitchen boasts a vintage cooktop, loads of
cabinet space, and easy access to the dining room with a bay
window. Don’t miss the vintage bathrooms,

Renovated midcentury modern in Palm Springs

Price: $875,000

Details: Love midcentury style but also want a
move-in ready home? Check out this three-bedroom, two-bath
in Palm Springs, California. Built in 1958 by Alexander
Construction Co. and designed by
William Krisel
, the home shows off all of Krisel’s trademark
features: a low-slung roof, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and
indoor-outdoor living.

At 1,269 square feet, the home is modestly sized yet lives large
on a corner lot wrapped in hedges. A 2018 remodel took the house
down to its studs to add polished concrete floors, quartz
countertops, teak cabinets, all new appliances, and Milgard
thermally improved aluminum doors and windows. The spacious pool
and spa outside is new, too.

A 1956 triangle home in Denver

Price: $799,500

Details: If you’re into midcentury A-frames,
get a look at
this cute three-bedroom, three-bath version
in Denver,
Colorado. Designed by architects Frenchie Gratts and Ed Warner in
1956, the 1,987-square-foot house is part of Denver’s Lynwood
neighborhood, which contains a collection of midcentury homes meant
to be informal and affordable.

To build the homes—which were originally constructed for less
than $15,000 per house—the builder-architect team drew
inspiration from
Joseph Eichler
’s West Coast A-frames. Like Eichler’s
designs, this house features exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, and
floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room to create an
indoor-outdoor feel.

Original mahogany built-ins and hardwood floors add warmth, and
the pitched roof creates stunning triangle windows. The galley
kitchen has been updated, and the backyard looks perfect for
entertaining with a courtyard, pergola, water feature, and spacious
yard on an almost 11,000-square-foot lot. Looking for more photos?

Dazzling A-frame in Pennsylvania

Price: $3,495,000

Details: Midcentury modern homes might be known
for their butterfly roofs, but the style also popularized the Swiss
Miss A-frame. And while you might expect A-frames in mountain towns
or midcentury hotbeds like California, check out
this three-bedroom, four-bath home
in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
Built in 1958 by noted midcentury architect Jules Gregory, the
low-lying home is bifurcated by a steep, dramatic A-frame roof that
rises straight from the ground.

Inside, the A-frame creates a dramatic double-height living room
with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the 1.42-acre
property. Recent renovations brought a more contemporary feel to
the space; gloss-black hardwood floors contrast with white walls,
beams, and counters. Other perks include a 16-foot kitchen island,
large closets, and a rear patio with bar, BBQ, fire pit, and pool.
