We admit that we’re partial to the Mies van der Rohe–designed townhomes in Lafayette Park. The geometrical simplicity of the building, the wall-to-ceiling windows that look out to the park, the way the design fosters community—there’s a lot to appreciate about the midcentury modern units.
So whenever a Mies townhome hits the market, we tend to feature it. This one on Nicolet Place is listed with O’Connor Real Estate for $399,000.
All the homes have nearly identical 1,400-square-foot floor plans. But the highly-customizable designs mean people can get creative with how owners outfit their place.
This one got a modern renovation in 2017 that’s in line with the original architecture of the units. The galley kitchen now has sleek white countertops and integrated appliances, including a Wolf induction stovetop. And the brand new bathroom maintains the geometrical theme with its gray custom-tiled shower.
Other updates include the stairways, which have new white oak tread and restored railings, and new hardware that matches the original.
The three-bedroom home comes with a $950 per month association fee that includes grounds and building maintenance, taxes, and private security.
If you want to see the unit in person, there will be an open house on Saturday, September 28 from noon to 3 p.m.
