43 Evans Lane, Wilton, Connecticut, 06897
Situated on a five-acre lot with an angular, wood-paneled main house, a rental-ready guest house, a saltwater pool, and a cabana, this Connecticut compound feels more like mid-century sleepaway camp. Designed by Charles Forberg, who just so happened to be the co-designer of the Pam Am logo, the designer of the Longhouse in East Hampton, and the son-in-law of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius (read more about that here), brought this Modernist retreat to life in 1965. Clad with moody dark wood exteriors and an A-frame roof, the main house beautifully contrasts with its white-walled interiors and circular outdoor swimming pool. Oh, and did we mention the property’s only next-door neighbor is a 400-acre land preserve? Click here for more images of this rare mid-century home.
12 Baytree Crescent, Toronto, Ontario, M2L 2G3
Don’t let its grand entrance, angular exteriors, or outdoor waterfall fool you, this Toronto home is made for play. Spanning 15,000 square feet on the city’s coveted Bayview Avenue, the extravagant residence includes a spa, fitness room, arcade and game room, home theater, and an indoor pool with a retractable roof. And in true ’90s fashion, the home’s Modern design is just as adventurous: the foyer boasts a multi-colored wood-paneled floor, triangular glass roofs dot the home’s exterior, and winding, vine-like fences and a sculpture of children at play greet guests at the entryway.

2340 Washington St., San Francisco, California, 94115
From the outside, this Pacific Heights dwelling looks like your typical San Francisco townhome: stark white stucco exteriors, rounded bay windows, a discreet lower-level garage, and a stone staircase leading up to a warm wood-trimmed front door. But step inside, and the recently renovated home reveals itself as a Modern oasis worth the $11.5 million-dollar price tag. Originally built in 1906, the previous owners contemporized the residence with sleek white oak floors, warm white walls, an exercise room, spa, and marble—everywhere! What’s more, the renovation also managed to make this home feel much bigger than its narrow footprint: the home not only includes five bedrooms and five full bathrooms but an expansive top-floor den with vaulted ceilings and a backyard! In a city where renting a walk-in closet costs $700 a month (editor’s note: this is not an exaggeration), this multi-million-dollar townhome is a small price to pay for comfortable luxury.
