Don Draper returns Sunday for a final turn on “Mad Men,” but his slicked-back spirit will live on in many a midcentury modern home with exposed beams and windows clear to the roofline.

In fact, a midcentury modern home that appeared in Season 2 of the show is now on the market for $7.5 million.

If that’s a few million too steep, check out these midcentury modern listings starting at $225,000:

Glasgow, Kentucky

409 Brice Avenue
For sale: $225,000

Glasgow, KY
Zillow

It’s the first time this home has been on the market since it was built in 1955. Like many midcentury modern homes, it features an open floor plan, natural materials such as creek stones, and walls of floor-to-ceiling glass.

For sale: $1.997 million

Los Angeles, CA
Zillow

The midcentury vibe of this 1963 home runs so thick you’d expect Samantha Stephens from “Bewitched” to greet you at the door with a martini. It features a stone-and-mirrored fireplace surround, newly polished concrete floors and a master suite with a sunken vintage tub and a private meditation garden.
