Why buy a Mid-Century Modern or Modern home?


Homes from the 1940's to late 1970's were part of Gainesville's boom period following WW2.

Most of the neighborhoods with Mid-Century Modern homes have mature treescape, established areas and are typically located around the University of Florida or near downtown. 


These homes were uniquely adapted to the Florida environment using new building materials like steel, glass and concrete. Mid-Century Modern design started the trend of open floor plans with good use of natural light and natural ventilation. 


Mid-Century Modern homes come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and condition. Price is always based on location, but for these homes condition plays a big factor as well. We can work together to find you the perfect fit! Or use our extensive contacts to assist you in remodeling the home. Either way, we are ready to help.
