classic midcentury modern reinvented 7406 Currin Drive 1

The classic midcentury modern home has become one of the hottest properties in America right now. They are highly sought after by a broad demographic, and you can find them in a wide variety of price ranges and locations — if you’re lucky that is. They go fast! Our Monday Morning Millionaire at 7406 Currin Drive is the best of both worlds. It’s classic midcentury modern, but it’s been taken down to the studs and completely reinvented by the talented team at Bernbaum Magadini Architects.

The house was originally built in 1954 by Harvey L. Tracey. Back then we had probably a fourth of the wardrobe and accessories that we have now, so large walk-in closets were unnecessary.  Energy efficiency wasn’t even a concept. No one in…

3616 Crescent

Originally built in 1963 for the Hexter family, E.G. Hamilton — the architect who helped found OmniPlan, the same firm that brought us NorthPark Center — designed 3616 Crescent Court in Highland Park to be a trend-setting home that took full advantage of the lot. The merit award-winning home is known for its excellent use of light and lines, with large rooms that make entertaining a breeze.

Mil Bodron of bodron+fruit poured time and talent into the home’s remodel, which successfully expanded the space while maintaining the character of Hamilton’s original design. It’s an incredible accomplishment in architecturally sensitive renovation.

Too bad it appears to be all for naught, as the new owners bought the home for almost…

Glenbrook

Location: Garland, Texas

Price: $425,000

This 1965 home in Garland, Texas oozes serious Mad Men vibes. Recently updated, the three-bedroom-three-bath measures 4,214 square feet and offers period living enhanced with contemporary updates.

The spacious split-level floor plan includes a front parlor space and a warm, wood-paneled step-down great room. Here, beamed ceilings, an impressive fireplace, and a wall of windows create a cozy space, replete with period carpeting that doesn’t feel stuffy and instead ups the mod vibe.

Located right off the great room, a large kitchen with breakfast nook combines two period stoves and stainless steel appliances. But the most surprising (and delightful) feature of the home is the massive indoor…

Get out.

Those were the first words out of my mouth when I opened the photos of 10849 Clearbrook: Get. Out. An ardent fan of midcentury modern architecture, I feel a very strong mix of awe and envy when encountering a specimen like this one. You have your sports, I have my midcentury houses. Properties like this make me giddy – and it doesn’t hurt that this stop on the upcoming White Rock Home Tour is furnished to delight the eye.

Realtor Brandon Stewart has had the pleasure of selling the home twice – once in 2012, before the house underwent massive renovations and again in 2014, to the current owner and friend, Jeri Paduch. He shared with us the pre-renovation photos, which give us even more appreciation for its current…

Brandon Stewart listed this midcentury modern when it came on the market back in 2014, and luck would have it that the buyers are now his clients as sellers.

And though we do love a time warp, we cannot deny that the sellers have done an exceptional job with updating this lovely Lochwood home, our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. We know it’s tough to be a buyer in this market, and if you’re already in love with this beauty in scorching hot East Dallas, better move fast and call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to get pre-approved today.

Of course, Stewart knows how we love a good before/after story, so jump to see what this amazing mid-mod looked like just a couple of years…

Anthony Henry had a good career in the NFL, starting out with the Cleveland Browns back in 2001, and joined the Dallas Cowboys 2005 for four seasons as cornerback. There wasn’t any drama, no Pro Bowls or championships. Just a nice nine-year career in professional football.

From there, Henry has done a little investing, but also launched a career in the film business as a producer. Interestingly enough, Henry listed his Hollywood contemporary last April for $2.85 million, according to Neal Leitereg at the Los Angeles Times. This month, David Griffin Realtor Brandon Stewart has listed Henry’s former home at 17 Winding Lake, which is on the market for $1.75 million. Like his former Hollywood abode, it’s a clean-lined…

7719 Lemmonwood Front 2

The curb appeal on this house is just unreal! From the terraced concrete planters to the expert landscape lighting, this is one of those houses that was made for twilight photo shoots. It looks like a jewel box from the outside, and is gorgeous on the inside, too.

Not only that, but it has all the extras — all of the little things that take a house from so-so to ooh-la-la — making it a great candidate for our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. Now, this house, marketed by Brandon Stewart at David Griffin & Company Realtors, has only been on the market for six days, so if you want to put in your highest and best right now, contact Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today.

CD01

OK, I know it doesn’t look like much from the outside, but trust me — this home is pure, unfiltered potential. It has every single detail that midcentury modern lovers just swoon over: low-slung roofs, clerestory windows, built-ins, open space, and cool vintage tile.

However, there have been a few updates that are clear misses. The windows would look so much better without mullions, the wallpaper in the master bath has to go, and I’m praying that all the carpet in this home is just a fine layer of ugly over beautiful hardwood floors.

Can you seen the potential? Then you probably know why this Merriman Park midcentury modern is the perfect pick for this week’s High Caliber Home sponsored by Caliber Home Loans. If you want…
