Location: Raleigh, North Carolina
In a sub-10 minute drive, you can get from bustling downtown Raleigh to an incredibly secluded contemporary home designed with Le Corbusier in mind. Marked by sweeping glass walls and soaring living areas, the rectilinear 3,325-square-foot house particularly takes to heart these words by the famous french-Swiss architect: "Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep."
Built in 1999, the clean-lined home, appropriately decorated in modernist furnishings, has a sun-drenched main wing with a double-height living room looking out to the entertaining terrace, lap pool, and lush lawns. A few steps away, a slightly elevated kitchen and dining area offers all-white cabinetry and sleek stainless steel appliances. And a bit further down, a set of floating stairs leads to a mezzanine study and the more low-key wing with two bedrooms.
