If you’re a fan of modernist architecture, North Carolina is the place to be! Here, you’ll find the third-largest concentration of modern homes, however, many of the homes come with a big price tag.
Modernist architecture is an architectural style that began back in the 1920’s, but really took off post-WWII between the 1940’s and 1970’s. A lot of true modernist listings, homes built in the 1950’s and later, are absolutely gorgeous but they are also very expensive. Of the 224 listings classified as ‘modernist’ currently on the market as of May 7, 2020, prices range from tear-down pricing of $58,000 to over $2.5 million. If you want to get the modernist look without the age or large price tag, we recommend considering new construction.
Characteristics of Modernist Homes
Many of the characteristics of modernist homes can be achieved with new construction. There are also a lot of builders in the Triangle area that specialize in this style. A few things to look for if you want to go modernist are:
- Flat or low-profile roofs
- Use of large glass walls
- Exposed structural elements
- Inside/outside feel where the landscape becomes part of the house
- Continuous spaces/flow
- Unique use of materials and finishes
