First Things First, What is a Modernist Home?
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, an architectural style that began back in the 1920’s, but really took off post-WWII between the 1940’s and 1970’s.
Modernist homes are known for their flat or low-profile roofs, large glass walls, exposed structural elements, inside/outside feel, continuous spaces, and unique use of materials and finishes.

The sunken living room features a statement fireplace and a wall of windows overlooking the wooded views just waiting to be enjoyed.
Meanwhile, the oversized bonus room provides options galore for entertaining.
Updated bathrooms and kitchen with quartz countertops just add to the allure.
