We’ll never tire of ogling midcentury modern homes—or fantasizing about owning one. Fortunately, there are plenty of residences from the ’50s and ’60s available for sale right now whose price tags are more than digestible.

So, without further ado, here are three period-perfect picks—plus one that’s pushing more ’70s-era modernism—to buy for under $700,000 from across the country. Take a look.

Michael Graves’s Hanselmann House in Fort Wayne, Indiana

The least expensive house happens to be the youngest of the bunch: this boxy 1967 Michael Graves design in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Completed in 1971, it was Graves’s first commission and comprises four bedrooms, two bathrooms, about 2,900 square feet of living space, and an original mural that the architect himself created. Located at 10220 Circlewood Drive, it’s yours for $264,888.

Meanwhile, in Boise, Idaho, an immaculately preserved 1965 rancher is on the market for the first time ever. That means the nearly 4,000-square-foot home boasts a groovy-bordering-on-kitschy interior design scheme complete with a wall of mirrors, gold wallpaper, and colorful carpet. Located at 510 South Bitterroot Drive, it’s offered at $399,900.

A Wisconsin home designed by Russell Barr Williamson

This lakefront home in Beaver Dam was designed by one-time Frank Lloyd Wright associate Russell Barr Williamson. Built in 1954, the 2,475-square-foot single-story abode features stone, brick, and glass expanses, along with built-in furniture and storage made from mahogany and cypress wood. The best part? Views of Beaver Dam Lake from nearly ever room. Located at 711 Lake Shore Drive, it’s available for $475,000.

Wallmark House by Moritz Kundig in Washington

Finally, in Nine Mile Falls, Washington, another lakefront home takes in majestic views by way of a wall of windows and a lovely deck. It was designed in 1962 by Moritz Kundig (who happens to be the father of Seattle-based architect Tom Kundig) and measures nearly 4,000 square feet along 700 feet of water frontage. The property, located at 14701 North Oxford Road, is available for $675,000.
