Location: Webster, New York
Price: $450,000

What looks like an odd assemblage of flat, sterile boxes in the woods of upstate New York is actually a virtually untouched 1960 home by architect Robert Clark. First flagged by Wowhaus, the nearly 3,000-square-foot home appears to be on the market for the first time and it sure looks like it (EDIT: Checking with property records, the home is indeed being sold for the first time since it was built for the Clark family—that would explain the drafting table in the home office!) The interior, surprisingly warm and unmistakably midcentury despite exterior impressions, features all sorts of natural wood, including cherry, walnut, cedar, pine, maple, and gumwood ("recovered from bottom of Mississippi River," per the listing, and lining the ceilings.)

In addition to double-layer brick walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, the four-bedroom home also seems to retain original fixtures like built-ins in almost every room, several pendant lights, and a copper-hooded fireplace. The $450,000 price tag includes five acres of woodlands, including access to a lovely creek nearby.
