Gorgeous Mies Van Der Rohe Townhouse in Detroit Asks $249K

Detroit's Lafayette Park residential neighborhood has quite the notable collection of Mies Van Der Rohe buildings, ranging from low-rise multiple family dwellings, to the imposing Lafayette Towers. Fresh on the market today, this 1959 townhouse designed by the German American architect practically defines midcentury modern style. Mies Van Der Rohe, perhaps most famous for designing the Seagram Building in New York City, helped define the "less is more" philosophy of midcentury design. This 3-bedroom, 1.5-bath unit in Lafayette Park exemplifies Mies' style with open, bright common areas, window walls, and the hallmark clean, elegant lines.
