Midcentury architecture can be stunning: exposed beams, unusual roof shapes, and windows without end. And probably the best thing about midcentury homes is their connection to the outdoors: stand in a certain part of these houses and you may not be quite certain whether you're indoors or out.

Come on in and take a look around.
