Location: Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Price: $765,000

If unique design inspires you, look no further than this towering five-bedroom, five-bath home in North Carolina. Custom built in 1975 for Winston-Salem resident Dr. John Hayes, the multi-level house was inspired by the “binuclear design” made famous by modernist architect and designer Marcel Breuer.

The binuclear layout features two separate wings with an entry hall at the nucleus, a way to organize the home’s sprawling 5,703 square feet. Renovations in 2013 updated and repaired problem areas, but left the house’s original California redwood paneling, imperial plaster walls, and oak parquet floors.

The building sits on 1.1 acres in the prime Winston-Salem neighborhood of Buena Vista, and also boasts a large master suite, wet bar, and a study with 12-foot ceilings and built-in bookcases. Outside, brick-terraced landscaping compliments a waterfall, pond, and extensive greenery, making this redwood giant look a bit like a castle in the forest.

If binuclear design sounds ideal to you, 2831 Galsworthy Drive is on the market now for $765,000.
