All around Atlanta, midcentury modern homes continue to find favor with homebuyers looking for something a little different—a dash of simplified cool that was far ahead of its time.

From those built in the 1950s to more recent renditions (and one really recent knockoff), from more standard ranch-style dwellings to the work of an Atlanta-based Frank Lloyd Wright protégé, these homes all have a unique flavor that sets them apart.

Dotted across the area, from East Point to Sandy Springs, here’s a taste of the best midcentury modern homes available on the Atlanta market right now.

3488 Mill Creek Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30319

Touted as “one of a kind” construction, this 1952 Brookhaven three-bedroom, two-bath ranch has been thoroughly renovated inside, sparing the original hardwood floors.

The home now includes an abundance of tray ceilings complete with recessed lighting, as well as “picturesque views” of the private backyard. All this built on a granite foundation with quartz exteriors for $880,000.

Atlanta, GA 30345

Just off Briarcliff Road, this renovated, 1,990-square-foot “entertainer’s dream home” from 1960 now sports such colorful accents as the lime green front doors and striking blue accent wall in the living room. There’s even a completed one-bedroom, one-bath apartment in the basement suited for a possible Airbnb rental to help recoup the asking price of $550,000.

5635 Lake Island Dr NW
Atlanta, GA 30327

For $1,169,000, this “midcentury gem” from 1971 overflows with “Hollywood glamour” thanks to its beamed ceilings, variety of textured finishes, and unique curves and angles.

The 4,745-square-foot home does a masterful job blending the interior with the wooded exterior, thanks to many floor-to-ceiling windows and bountiful skylights. Some updates (various tile, aspects of the kitchen) could be in order.

4. 3114 Northbrook Drive

3114 Northbrook Dr
Atlanta, GA 30341

Located off Chamblee-Tucker Road, this 1967 midcentury modern has been renovated with quartz countertops, bamboo floors, and updated bathrooms while sparing the original tongue-and-groove ceilings.

Even so, there’s something that feels dated about the house, although it’s not the $409,000 asking price.

5. 2705 Mabry Road NE

2705 Mabry Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30319

Built in 1969, this four-bedroom, five-bath midcentury offering in Brookhaven holds court on a “luscious, private, deep” lot that’s billed as a “one of a kind dreamy site.” Indoor pool, anyone?

Marketed as a potential rebuild or renovation, it’s not surprising the focus of the home’s listing is on the property rather than the structure. What is surprising, though, is the asking price of $1,175,000, given the home’s not-unsubstantial needs.

6. 265 Glen Lake Drive

265 Glen Lake Dr
Sandy Springs, GA 30327

Designed by architect Robert Green in 1974, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last disciples, this two-bedroom, two-bath home in Sandy Springs features dramatic, tongue-and-groove wood ceilings and plenty of natural light from the surrounding wooded lot.

Although the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated, there’s a strong 1970s vibe throughout the 1,857-square-foot dwelling. At $550,000, the listing claims the so-called Pafford House is “priced to sell,” but that remains to be seen, as it’s been on the market for more than two months.

7. 6445 Long Island Drive

6445 Long Island Dr
Sandy Springs, GA 30328

Yes, this one’s a true midcentury wannabe, but it’s interesting nonetheless. Asking $875,000, the 4,294-square-foot offering in Sandy Springs works hard to live up to its somewhat confounding billing as an “exciting midcentury modern home.”

The hallmarks are there: the two-story foyer, soaring vaulted ceilings, and sunken living room along with five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Outside the 2013 house, a private courtyard is ideal for entertaining, with an extensive fenced-in backyard to boot.

8. 3078 Duke of Gloucester Street

3078 Duke of Gloucester St
East Point, GA 30344

Built in 1964 and home to just two owners since, this five-bedroom, four-bath midcentury modern home in East Point is a study in interesting contrasts.

For instance, the kitchen has a stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher, but the canary yellow oven and range hood speak to its 1960s origins. With an asking price of $259,000, however, there could be room in lofty budgets for a makeover.

9. 535 River Valley Road NW

535 River Valley Rd NW
Atlanta, GA 30328

Up in Sandy Springs, this “stunning, renovated” 3,100-square-foot home includes spacious rooms with vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and natural textures like stone walls, hardwood and tile floors, and granite countertops.

Asking $720,000, this relic of 1965 opens up to a screened porch and pool area that is “perfect for entertaining in a private setting.”
