This cool midcentury modern home in St. Louis, Missouri, features the best of the era: brick, glass, and wood expanses; a flowing floorplan; dramatic double-height spaces; and clean lines.

Built in 1960 by architect Kenneth Schafer, the 4,769-square-foot residence appears to be largely original with a few updates found throughout. Brick walls, windows, and wood panels make up the exterior of the ranch-like house that boasts an overhanging roof. A double-height glazed entryway gives way to a dynamic brick-lined split-level foyer, with an open-tread steel-and-wood staircase leads to the main level.

Here, a large landing transitions into a step-down great room characterized by white walls, a white brick fireplace, clerestory windows on one side, and full-height windows on the other framing nature views. Adjacent to this space is a large eat-in kitchen with fireplace, vaulted tongue-and-groove ceilings, what looks like original cabinetry (the pulls are really cool), and a wall of glass overlooking an expansive deck.

As for bedrooms there are four, including a main-floor master suite with fireplace and nearly full-height windows, and three on the lower level. A cozy family room and an awesome period bathroom are also located here, bringing the bathroom count to two and a half.

The property itself is also impressive and is set on three lush acres on a private site with a three-car garage. Located at 12711 Post Oak Road, the home is offered at $1.2 million.
