Own a piece of Knoxville's modernist history with this updated 1960 midcentury modern home designed by the late Bruce McCarty for, according to the listing, the city's "original Mad Man."

McCarty was an award-winning architect and Knoxville's premier champion of modern architecture. He designed some of the city's most iconic landmarks, including many at the University of Tennessee. He was also master architect of the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville.

This airy two-story, four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 3,006 square-foot house sits on one of Knoxville's highest hilltops and offers spectacular, panoramic views that are bolstered by floor-to-ceiling windows. It also makes for a great entertaining space—think swinging parties and endless martinis—with its cathedral ceilings, outdoor terraces, two fireplaces, and 40-foot pool. The living room also features a white built-in couch and cabinet system and George Nelson light fixtures that instantly up the mod factor.
