House #5: The Carmel Contemporary

It seems most of the cool mid-century homes are in Castleton and Meridian-Kessler. So to look in Carmel we had to broaden our search a bit. We decided to include contemporary homes in our search. They tend to take inspiration from mid-century modern homes, but with bigger rooms. And in our case, better locations.

Not a mid-century, but some of the elements are there.

We found this 80s contemporary that has some mid-century like features. It has oversized windows (although not as oversized) clean lines and natural wood textures. It also has some things that are decidedly not mid-century. Like lots of carpet, and oiled bronze light fixtures.

Definitely not a mid-century modern staircase.

This is another home with potential. Since it is a contemporary, it could be given a mid-century feel way easier than a traditional style home. It’ll take time and money, but it can get there. It also has a pool which is nice. We won’t have to look at getting one installed down the line. So now we have the age old real estate conundrum, do we look for a home that has the style we want? Or the location we want? There are plenty of contemporary style homes in Carmel, and that may be what we need to focus on going forward.
