I'll bet you thought I'd given up. Nope. Not in the least. But the last six months have found me focusing on setting up my law office rather than on sharing the MCM love. And yes, even law offices can be hip. Exhibit A (manufactured back in the day by the Alma furniture company and hauled by a sweaty me from Atlanta to the 'ham this last summer. I know you're jealous):
But I'm back, baby. And I'm committed to showing this blog some love this year.
Let's start off with a look around the 'ham at some mod listings. January 'tis typically not the season for house hunting. But you, brave readers, are exceptions to this rule. I just know it. So if that Womb chair just doesn't look right in the living room of your Hoover townhouse, say no more. Put on your mittens and get in the car. I am here to help you.
315 Linwood Ct. Forest Park. You know this house. You've driven past it for years and wondered what lurked behind the greenery-covered brick walls and the shrubbery. Now you know. After a price drop to $399,000, this Forest Park mod is calling out to one of you. There's an addition I can't quite sort out from the photos (maybe the double-height area?), and part of the garage was taken in to make an extra bedroom, but it's still pretty doggone cool.
If your budget is not quite up to par for Forest Park, just wander a short distance down Clairmont to Crestwood and 5309 10th Court South where this cutie is listed for a mere $190,000. Sure the washer and dryer are in the kitchen. But what price style? And speaking of kitchen, these folks used the same Nexus Yellow-Brown IKEA cabinets that I used. They work well in an MCM home, if I say so myself. Too bad they've been discontinued.
And one for those in the top 1%. 4320 Old Brook Trail is near the Ireland House and the Fritz Woehle house, and is far enough off the road on its 2.5 acres that the protesters shouldn't bother you much. But we at Magic City Modern will bother you. Because we'll want to get inside and touch things and try hard to become your very, very best friends. A mere $1,290,000. But those clerestory windows and the folded plate roof are priceless, no?
Stay warm, mod babies!
