For those looking for both serenity and simplicity within the city, the Mies van der Rohe townhouses in Lafayette Park certainly offer both worlds. Located just east of downtown, between the Riverfront and Eastern Market, the townhouses werebuilt in 1959 as a co-op community. Questions about the Mies community can likely be answered at Mies Detroit.
A rare courtyard unit just listed in the co-op, and offers more space inside and a private green space outside. This unit was recently renovated and still reflects the midcentury modern aesthetic of the design. Here, you’ll find floor to ceiling windows, a large living space, a modern kitchen, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a basement.
We’ve seen listings at a variety of prices this year; another courtyard unit recently sold for $447,500. This one is listed at $650,000, with $1,088 in HOA fees (master mortgage, taxes, maintenance, and more included). It’s listed through Signature Sotheby's International Realty. Here’s a look around.
