Lafayette Park’s townhomes are beautiful examples of midcentury modern design. But some have seen little to no renovation in 60 years. So it’s always nice when one that’s been smartly updated hits the market. That’s certainly the case for this one, which just listed at $279,000.

The unit for sale is part of the Chateaufort Place Cooperative, which has 60 ranch-style homes with a similar aesthetic to the nearby Mies van der Rohe–designed townhomes. Like all Chateaufort units, this one has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms spread across 1,400 square feet on a single floor. It also comes with a private courtyard.

This particular condo, as we mentioned, has gotten a nice renovation. The updated galley kitchen has newer appliances and a tiled floor that extends to the foyer. The master bathroom now has a walk-in glass shower. The hardwood floors and walls shine. And the basement has been fully finished with lots of additional space for an office and entertaining.

The monthly co-op fee is around $750, but it covers a lot—property taxes, water and sewerage, landscaping, plumbing maintenance, and more.

1548 Chateaufort Place is listed for $279,000 listed with Tim Gilson of Gilson Home Group.
