Location: Hickory Corners, Michigan

Price: $352,000

The marvelous midcentury moderns keep coming our way, and we are powerless to stop them. Here’s another beauty out of Michigan in a tiny town called Hickory Corners just a half-hour’s drive from Kalamazoo, where this George Nelson stole our hearts.

Though its provenance is unknown, the 3,200-square-foot, three-bedroom is "custom built" and "architect-designed," according to the listing, and boasts a wealth of period details including brick walls, dark oak floors, trim, cabinetry, and storage throughout, a Murphy bed, clean, geometric lines, and a low, sprawling profile. It’s located on one-and-a-quarter acres of woodland and features a large Brazilian redwood deck overlooking a beautifully landscaped backyard. The property also includes a greenhouse and solarium, a detached three-car garage with accommodations for a workshop, storage, and a wood stove-heated workspace, and an additional building for storage.

Other amenities include an exercise room, two gas fireplaces, access to Gull Lakem and more. There’s so much here—for only $352,000—that you’ll just have to see it to believe it.
