As any midcentury modern addict will tell you, the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright stretches far. Take this four-bedroom, four-bath home in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, about 30 minutes north of Detroit. The house was designed in 1958 by local architect James Conn for Anne and Mike Rosenthal and has long been known as the “Atrium House.” Conn studied under Frank Lloyd Wright in Wisconsin and Eero Saarinen at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.

The 3,722-square-foot house features original woodwork including walnut panels, a teak sliding room divider between the living room and the foyer, and a 12-foot log built-in buffet. The interior design was done by Ruth Adler Schnee, an important figure in bringing the midcentury movement to Michigan. The house gets its name from the triangular atrium, a show-stopping feature with glass walls, a glass ceiling, and lots of plants.

Other highlights include a beautiful brick fireplace with wood hood, large windows, plenty of horizontal lines, and original Travertine floors. While the bathrooms have been updated—including the master bath with a jetted tub and waterfall shower—the home boasts a ton of original midcentury style.

If this looks like your midcentury dream, 1225 Stuyvessant Road is on the market now for $945,000.
