This Mid-Century Modern Mount Pleasant home was designed by a Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice — and we want to die here

You heard us. We want to die here. We're not trying to be morbid or anything but this home is so beautiful there seems like no better place to take our final earthly breath — and we think you might agree.

Anyway, this $469,000 home in Mount Pleasant is a one of a kind ranch-style home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice and famed architect Alden B. Dow. The professionally landscaped home occupies 3,378 square feet and features 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, as well as 223 feet of private river frontage.

Built in 1961, the home screams Mid-Century Modern masterpiece, with its extreme built-in storage, floor to ceiling windows, and preciously designed use of open space. The living room features a statement fireplace, a built-in couch, as well as floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river. There's a sunroom, too, and a dining room with a wet bar. The massive kitchen has granite countertops and St. Charles cabinetry and is connected to a laundry room and mudroom off of the garage. Perhaps the quirkiest feature is what appears to be a half-bathroom with holographic wallpaper that gives us futuristic disco vibes — and also the will to carry on.

This home is listed by Joseph Olivieri of Associated Realty and om-housing.com
