140 Heather Lane in Princeton, New Jersey, is currently listed for $1,195,000 by Linda Twining of Callaway Henderson Sotheby’s International Realty.

“Modernist architect Otto Kolb, celebrated throughout Europe and the US, designed this one-of-a-kind home nestled into a sun-dappled lot on a sleepy street at Princeton’s edge. The single-story home feels completely enveloped by its enchanting, woodsy surrounds, its interior bathed in sunlight pouring through floor-to-ceiling walls of glass. Exposed brick walls add rustic texture and interest, along with wood trim, slabs of stone, and even sheets of weathered metal. A nicely separated guest suite and/or office has served the ever-shifting lifestyles of current times.”

East Hampton’s Legendary Antler House Just Hit the Market for $2.5M

23 Neck Path in East Hampton, New York, is currently listed for $2,495,000 by Lori Schiaffino of Compass and Esteban Gomez of @TheCreativesAgent.

“The Andrew Geller Antler House is a turnkey, fully restored luxury beach house and one-of-a-kind work of art. Andrew Geller was not only the preeminent midcentury architect for beach houses on Long Island, but one of the most important midcentury architects in the world. He’s affectionately nicknamed ‘the Architect of Happiness,’ and some common exaltations of Geller’s work include ‘whimsical, breathtaking, playful, breezy, joyful, original, and dream houses.’ Today, more than ever, Geller’s work is coming into full appreciation and no house has been more at the forefront of this awakening than the Antler House. Designed and built in 1968, the Antler House is perhaps the most inventive and playful of all Geller’s beach houses. The heart of the home is the expansive great room with cedar-paneled cathedral ceilings, walls of glass, and an open floor plan. The perfect place for entertaining, it is perched on the 2nd floor with ‘owl eye’ floor-to-ceiling windows which frame and capture the sunrise, sunset, and idyllic forest views.”

Lloyd Wright’s Second Commissioned Home Seeks $3.2M in L.A.

The Bollman Residence, located at 530 N. Ogden Drive in Los Angeles, California, is currently listed for $3,198,000 by Nate Cole of Modern California House and Dalton Gomez of Christie’s International Real Estate.

“After collaborating on Frank Lloyd Wright’s seminal Hollyhock House, Wright’s son, Lloyd Wright, and his top surrogate in Los Angeles, R.M. Schindler, both struck out on their own. Schindler built his pioneering home and studio on Kings Road; Wright built the Henry O. Bollman Residence. Just his second independent commission, it translated the lessons Wright had learned working alongside the finest designers of his day — his father, Schindler, Olmsted & Olmsted, Irving Gill, and Norman Bel Geddes— into a harmonious and distinctive whole. Today, Wright’s vision remains entirely intact, with only the most sensitive updates for 21st-century living. Four light-filled bedrooms, two vintage-inspired bathrooms, an airy, contemporary kitchen and a verdant private patio amid 2,518 square feet of living space make the Bollman Residence one of the only properties by a giant of Los Angeles modernism currently on the market that isn’t just an architectural masterpiece, but also a fully functional, move-in-ready home.”

This Tiny €530K Finnish Flat Comes Complete With Its Own Sauna

Laivurinkatu 41 A, located in Helsinki, Finland, is currently listed for €530,000 (approximately $590,059 USD) by Petri Kajaanof LKV. 

“Built in 1907, this Finnish apartment is located in an old Art Nouveau building, which recently underwent a massive remodel. All plumbing, electrical work, and public areas were restored to match the original designs. The flat itself was designed and renovated by the owner, Aleksi Hautamäki. Mixing old and new, the apartment features wooden walls, floor-to-ceiling glass, and clever space-saving innovations. All the fixed furnishings around the flat were custom made for the space from the same handpicked knotty oak veneer as the walls. Though small in size, the apartment was carefully designed to utilize every corner and now includes two bedrooms and a well-equipped kitchen, loft, and sauna. It might sound odd to have a sauna in a tiny flat like this, but in Finland saunas are everywhere.”
