Location: Memphis, Tennessee

Price: $489,000

Located in east Memphis with views onto Audobon Park, this four-bedroom, three-bath midcentury home offers a lot of style for the money. The home was designed by the prominent architectural firm Walk Jones II and according to the listing, when it was built in 1957 it was the first international style house in the city.

Floor-to-ceiling glass walls complement the open and airy floor plan, and the living room features ten-foot ceilings, a gas fireplace, and views onto a landscape yard outside. Many original details remain, including a fruitwood staircase and redwood woodwork. A cozy den features pickled cypress paneling as well as a second wood-burning fireplace, built-in bookcases, and crab orchard stone floors.

The galley-style kitchen is a cheery blue, with eye-level cabinets suspended between upper and lower windows. The master bed boasts multiple closets—including a walk-in—and the three bedrooms upstairs share two baths between them.

A remodeled pool lets you cool off in the heat, and an attached studio and extra bath was recently refinished in 2018 with new windows, doors, and cypress siding.

Lovers of midcentury style, 711 South Perkins Road is on the market now for $489,000.
