Not all Mid-Century Modern homes were built in the 50s and 60s, of course. Open floor plans, large windows, living room fire place, soaring ceilings, and clean lines are all Mid-Mod aspects that have carried over into modern design sensibilities. Minimalist homes often incorporate the idea of bringing the beauty of the outside in through walls of glass, just like the Mid-Mods did, making the natural surroundings the focal point of the property.
However, step inside this newly-built Mid-Mod-inspired home in Saugerties, built by Catskill Farms, and you’ll find the interior just as beautiful as the 4.8 acre lot upon which it sits. All the hallmarks of a Mid-Mod are here, including the aforementioned open floor plan, large windows, living room fireplace, and soaring ceilings, plus modern upgrades like energy-efficient furnace and on-demand water heater. And, instead of the dark knotty wood paneling that we find so often in Mid-Mods, this home is bright with light plank wood flooring and paneling.
Sadly, this Saugerties home is under contract, and the rest of Catskill Farms’ Mid-Mods are sold out or under contract, too. See more of the house here, or scroll for more photos.
