Hillside Residence / William Fletcher

Designed in 1965, the house is the work of Oregon architect William Fletcher, a modernist known for deftly using glass and Pacific Northwest woods in his thoughtful, airy homes.

Fletcher’s 250 square metre house in the Bridlemile neighbourhood blends classic style with updated custom touches. Features include Oregon Black Walnut on the cabinets and fireplace mantel, designer tile throughout, and built-in furniture in many rooms. The master suite includes heated marble slab floors and a walk-in closet, and the home’s windows allow for peaceful views onto the trees beyond.

It’s a home filled with natural light and high-quality materials. If you love what you see, 4440 SW Hillside Drive is on the market now for $1,145,000 — via Curbed

Corwin House / Richard Neutra

Known as the Corwin House, it’s one of only two properties designed by Internationally-renowned architect Richard Neutra remaining in Connecticut, and it’s being sold by the original owner, Betty Corwin. Corwin and her husband reached out to Neutra in 1955 after being dissatisfied with their first architect, and tasked the iconic architect to build the structure on 4.3 acres perched above the Saugatuck River — via Curbed

Triumph Bonneville T120R Bobber / Pitstop

Pitstop is a team of three led by an Indonesian builder called Agung. They’re based in the hot and humid province of Central Java, and like most Indonesian builders they have to be incredibly resourceful and thrifty. Yet this does not seem to affect the quality of their work. This Bonneville is actually a T120R, one of the lesser-known Meriden models. It was an export version of the base bike, and branded as the Bonneville Speedmaster by dealers in the USA. It’s not an especially well-documented model, but the fuel tank was smaller and the bars had a slightly higher bend — via Bike EXIF

Swiss Miss House / Charles DuBois

This A-frame home was designed by architect Charles DuBois in 1958 in an effort to stand out from the architecture of other neighbourhood homes. Better known as a Swiss Miss House for its chalet-inspired shape, the home is unlike the surrounding butterfly or flat-roofed houses of Vista Las Palmas that were built by Joe Dunas and the Alexander Construction Company in the 1950s. DuBois envisioned a low-lying ranch home that was bifurcated by a steep, dramatic A-frame roof that rose straight from the ground. 755 West Crescent Drive is on the market now for $2,999,900 — via Curbed

Cree House / Albert Frey

There are plenty of stunning mid century modern homes in Palm Springs, but this one bedroom gem is straight out of a movie set. Called the Cree House and designed in 1955 by Swiss-born architect Albert Frey, the home was commissioned by prominent Palm Springs community leader Raymond Cree. But unlike many of the other stand-out buildings in the area, the flat-roofed, boxy home set into the rocky foothills was never open to the public. 67389 East Palm Canyon Drive is on the market now for $2,500,000 — via Curbed
