Sacramento | $1.385 Million
A midcentury-modern house built in 1968, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, on a 0.4-acre lot
This house was designed by John Harvey Carter, an architect who designed more than 400 private and public buildings in the Sacramento area and served as a member of the city’s planning commission. It has been owned by the same family since it was built, and the sellers have updated the bathrooms and the kitchen while maintaining the original layout, which includes midcentury flourishes like a sunken living room and a reflecting pool.
The property is near the American River, and a number of riverfront parks are within a 20-minute drive, as is downtown Sacramento.
Size: 2,232 square feet
Price per square foot: $621
Indoors: A long walkway leads from the street to the bright orange front door, flanked by frosted-glass walls. The foyer is illuminated by a starburst chandelier and has aqua paneling that divides it from the dining area.
To the left is a light-filled living room that has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the reflecting pool just outside, as well as a sunken area with plush white carpeting that surrounds a central firepit.
