Midcentury modern homes come in all shapes and sizes, from Palm Springs renovations to starchitect-designed stunners. But in reality, most of the midcentury real estate in the U.S. is less about ritz and polish and more about the livable, nature-oriented tenets of midcentury design. Take this three-bedroom, two-bath home in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Built in 1956 by architect Burtch Beall as a family home, the well-preserved house shows the clean lines of midcentury architecture. Beall was a Frank Lloyd Wright historian and preservationist, and he designed the 2,756-square-foot home in the Prairie style. From the street you can see a plum tree, gravel drive, and wood-paneled carport equipped with skylights.
A fence hides long horizontal lines, overhanging eaves, and rows of windows meant to compliment the landscape. The quarter-acre lot is divided into two halves by a terrace; on one side sits a studio space while on the other is the main house. Inside, a fireplace with a built-in reading nook takes center stage, and the home features wood panels, plenty of light, custom cabinets, and craftsman style sliding screens in the kitchen.
