Marketing and selling modern architecturally significant homes is a highly specialized area of real estate. My main objective is to help those who see the value in architecture. This website gets thousands of hits a month from people seeking unique modern and mid-century modern homes. I work primarily in the five counties based around Philadelphia, but I have set up a network of other modern specialists throughout the country. Please also feel free to contact Craig if your are outside the Philadelphia region so that I can connect you with the modern specialist in your area.
Currently there is a number of significant mid-century and modern properties on the market, including some by well known architects who designed homes in the area. Two of Louis Kahn's award winning homes are available. There is a fantastic Montgomery and Bishop home close to center city on 3 acres. An incredible renovated steel frame home by Frank Weise among many others listed below. I have researched the modern and mid-century homes available in center city Philadelphia and the surrounding counties and would be glad to work with you to help you purchase a great modern home.

This truly spectacular Modern home designed by Robert Von Gerbig -an architect who had worked in the office of Louis Kahn- is on the market for the first time since its construction in 1958. Its remarkable original condition is virtually unseen in homes from the 1950's in this region. This home is among the best examples of the "glass box" in mid-century American architecture. The living room, dining room, kitchen, and bedrooms all open to the outdoors with south facing walls of glass. The entry garden courtyard further heightens the outdoor connection with cross views from each of the major rooms and the bedrooms. The home's extensive clearstory windows complement its high ceilings. The views overlook the beautifully landscaped specimen plantings, many over 50 years old. The home's extraordinary setting on a private lane surrounded by distant stately homes preserves the privacy of this glass box. Every detail of the 4-bedroom, 5-bath home was built with the very highest quality materials. A truly remarkable and rare opportunity to own a significant work of architectural importance, preserved with the highest possible integrity. Coming Spring 1.6million
