4150 Malaga Avenue: Inside Mid-Century Modern Home In Coral Gables (PHOTOS)

The mid-century modern craze was back before the advent of "Mad Men", but can't you see Roger Sterling stashing his secret 305 squeeze in a pad like this?

Designed by famed Miami architect Trip Russell, this 1948 home is tucked into the back of a large, lush lot at 4150 Malaga Avenue -- and, unfortunately for anyone ready to leap at a $549,000 price in the heart of Coconut Grove, is already under contract.

But that doesn't mean it isn't a joy to look: check out the clean simplicity, exposed construction elements, and the way the home brings the outside in with lots of windows and non-competing decor.

The only drawback for modern lovers? The 1,365-square foot home boasts just one bathroom to share between 3 bedrooms, though as listing agent Carole Smith points out, the 12,000-square foot lot allows room to build on.
