Less is more, unless of course we're talking about epic views of Lake Michigan. Here's a unit in Mies van der Rohe's 860–880 Lake Shore Drive Apartments that really embodies the mid-century minimalism that the legendary architect became known for. The space is uncluttered and staged with period furnishings, which allows the sweeping lake views to be the star. And for those who dig retro listings, this one sports cork floors and a vintage pink-tiled master bath that will certainly excite a certain type of buyer. It's also got a renovated kitchen area that is sensitive to the rest of the place's minimalist vibe. While the unit certainly has a lofty feel to it, this one is not a blockbuster. Mies certainly had his critics, but it's hard to not be impressed with this one. It can be had for $699,000.
