Midcentury house for sale on 73 acres asks $1.6M

0 0


Fans of midcentury modern architecture have no shortage of potential homes to buy, but not many of them are on extensive plots of land. This four-bedroom, four-bath home in the mountains of North Carolina marks an exception.

Designed in 1949 by Holland Brady of the architecture firm Schweikher and Elting, the 2,948-square-foot main house sits on a 73-acre horse farm surrounded by rolling hills. The home was featured in Architectural Record (page 122-126) in 1952 with an extensive description of its attributes.

Overhanging roofs and long horizontal lines help organize the design, and the home is shaped in a wide V with the living room at the center. A distinct fireplace with angled bricks adds texture and takes center stage in the living room, and all of the windows are floor-to-ceiling to take advantage of the panorama. A large terrace on either side offers indoor-outdoor living, including views onto the sculptured hedge bushes in the yard.

Other original period features include wood ceilings, built-in shelves, and wooden floors. The listing also includes a six-stall barn, established pastures, and two guest houses. And while the main house lacks the shine and polish from its Architectural Record heyday, a bit of work could make this place shine.

If you’re ready to take on the restoration, Long Lane Farm is on the market now for $1,600,000.


The V-shaped house features a large terrace on either side of the main living room.
