Spectacular Homes: America’s Most Famous Modern Home Is For Sale

POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Dec. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — “Palm Springs’ Desert House”

Edgar J. Kaufmann made architectural history twice. First when he hired Frank Lloyd Wright to design his home, Fallingwater, in Pennsylvania in 1935 and again in 1946 when he commissioned Richard Neutra to create his famed Desert House in Palm Springs. After undergoing a five-year restoration by Marmol Radziner, the Desert House is on the market at $25 million.

Kaufmann, owner of Kaufmann’s department store in Pittsburgh, which later became Macy’s, was a patron of the arts in the Steel City and contributed heavily toward their advancement. A prominent leader in the retail world, Kaufmann took over the family business at age 28 and quickly tripled the flagship store’s sales, eventually expanding the number of stores to 59 across five Midwestern states. Kaufmann led the good life of great wealth which allowed

SAGINAW TWP, MI — There’s a “stunning” custom-built mid-century home with 21st century updates for sale in Saginaw Township.

The home, located at 4700 Pinehaven Drive and listed at $475,000, is MLive’s House of the Week. Homes across the state are showcased every Wednesday. This week’s home “was built for entertaining,” according to Mark McKnight of Century 21 Signature Realty.

“It was built in 1960 and it was built by Morgan builders, who were a very prestigious builder at the time,” McKnight said. “It took almost two years to build because it was a custom-built home, that means they had finishing carpenters that did all the crown moldings and finish work, and it’s exquisite.”

This 4,900-square-foot “executive home” features two expansive main-floor master suites and two large bedrooms with shared bath on the second floor, including a sitting room and dressing room. The L-shaped kitchen has a wet bar, ice
