Back To The Future? St Petersburg Mid-Century Modern Homes.
There’s something exciting about mid-century modern homes. You can take a look at one and think it was built just yesterday. (Real our earlier post about mid-century modern homes in Tampa Bay wtih more photos here.) Even though this design was popular in the 50’s and 60’s it is still attractive today because the lines and general architecture are very simple and modern. “Less is more” proved to be a philosophy of success. A mid-century modern home is like a beautiful canvas upon which you create a masterpiece. In the world of modern design it means creatively combining landscaping, furniture and artwork and bringing some feng shui in the home.
There are many examples of mid-century modern homes in St Petersburg. You will find them in Old Northeast, Snell Isle, Pinellas Point, Allendale. I’ve seen mid-century modern homes in St Pete Beach and Belleair. There’s a variety of designs and you may find these homes from 1,200 sq.ft to 6,000 sq.ft in size. Recently some local builders picked up the idea and started building homes with mid-century modern design in mind. Of course building a mid-century modern house 60 years later is not the same. Builder adds a lot of modern touches, bigger closets, cable and speaker wired walls and ceilings. The glass is hurricane-proof, appliances are high-tech and you may find Ikea cabinetry in the kitchen.
Here are just a couple mid-century modern homes on the market in the Snell Isle area. If you are looking for a mid-century modern home or thinking of building a home with design of that era in mind, let us know, The Home Team has the expertise you are looking for. We’ll make your dreams come true!
