Marc Kleinmann of Bauhaus Custom Homes doesn’t build big white boxes. Sure, this contemporary townhouse in Oak Lawn has a modular design, but this Melrose Heights Condominium is an exercise in what the Germany native does with unfettered lines, luxe finishes, and dramatic architecture. That’s why Phillip Murrell of Compass RE‘s listing at 4015 Wycliff Avenue, Unit No. 1 is this week’s High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
What once was fodder for infill land development in the heart of Oak Lawn, this Unit No. 1 was the start of Melrose Heights Condominiums, a designer Oak Lawn condo which quickly sold with Unit 2 and 3 before construction was even complete in Spring 2015. This three-story end unit is the perfect size with three bedrooms, three and half-baths, and 2,126 square feet with private yard and two-car attached garage.
Walk in to find hardwood floors, walls of windows and 10.6 foot ceilings. The first floor has a great home office with tons of windows looking onto the beautiful, walkable neighborhood.
Up on the second floor, you’ll find the open living area with quartzite two-sided fireplace, dining room, and kitchen. Look at the wall treatment by the fireplace! A Kleinmann finish no doubt.
This stylish kitchen has a generous-sized island, custom millwork, tile backsplash, and Kitchenaid stainless steel appliances, including built-in microwave, cooktop, dishwasher, and oven.
The oversized master located on the top floor has a sitting area, 12 x 8 master closet, and en suite bathroom with standalone frameless shower with two showerheads and a soaking tub. The two other bedrooms are located on the second and third floors. It’s got a wraparound second-floor terrace and a first-floor backyard that’s great for a garden or outdoor entertaining.
