In the up-and-down maze of the 1985 postmodern Court at Museums Gate complex in Montrose, one of the 3-story units has been on and off the market at a variety of price points since last summer. Yesterday, the plaza-entry condo popped up again in a re-listing (with sharper photos) by a new agency. The asking price, $370,000, is where things stood earlier this month when an April 2014 re-listing terminated, having reduced its $385K price tag for 2 days. Back in July 2013, the unit debuted at $276,000, then tracked its price upward with the market through the end of the year. The property last sold in 2011, for $168,517.
Glass bricks appear as an interior wall in the entry, shielding a study (in the photo at the top of the story) and again as a matrix that provides the only natural light for the dining room (above). A 4-pack in the living room, meanwhile, takes on a supporting role, adjacent to a pair of mismatched windows:
The updated galley kitchen’s layout repeats in the extended slash of overhead storage:
Head upstairs to the 1,974-sq.-ft. home’s 3 bedrooms:
Here’s how the previous listing (access to which is no longer available, alas) showed this in-bathroom coffee bar: rigged to deliver a morning jolt (one way or another), with toilet at the ready, beyond:
Scattershot cubes accent another of the bedrooms:
The other bedroom gets access to the rooftop deck, with its crop of tented skylights:
On the second floor, the slightly raised pool puts its through-the-cube views below water:
The 49-unit complex, designed by architect Jay Baker, is rumored to have 20 different floor plans. Head south a block to find the Black Lab pub and Freed-Montrose library branch. University of St. Thomas is also a neighbor.
