A four-bedroom, 2,841-square-foot mid-century modern house on 125 feet of Lake Michigan in St. Joseph, Mich. that was designed by famed architect Paul Schweikher was listed June 30 for $2.75 million.
Built in 1950, the house was designed by Schweikher, who early in his career worked for noted architect David Adler and later served as the chairman of the Yale School of Architecture.
In St. Joseph, the all-brick house has four bathrooms, five fireplaces, a slate foyer, redwood throughout the entire interior, a kitchen with stainless steel KitchenAid appliances, a master suite that is its own wing, and a detached brick garage. The house sits on a 2.48-acre parcel that is not on a bluff, unlike some other homes in the area.
“The owners had a complete renovation and addition done about 20 years ago,” said listing agent Michael McCausland of @properties. “And the house is well-hidden from the street, as well as from the lake. It’s a unique property in the fact that it has 125 feet of Lake Michigan frontage and is impeccably landscaped on a private lot. Many homeowners on that street have elected to open up the beachfront so you can see the water. These owners have not, but it could be done easily.”
