West Town's much-hyped "prefab pioneer" found a buyer rather expeditiously after listing in late Winter. The initial asking price of $750K slipped a little to $735K before closing at $701K. Readers may recall the 2,000-square-foot 3-bed prefab tucked snuggly between larger 3-flats near the corner of Noble & Ohio. Designed and executed by Square Root Architecture + Design, the LEED Platinum-certified home makes sustainable inroads with cork flooring, solar panels, and a 2-story "light well". On a purely aesthetic level, the home might feel a little cold but the lot does boast lovely gardens and ample yard space. As this showpiece changes hands, Square Root continues to expand its design/build techniques to other nearby sites.
