On the market for the first time ever, here's a chance to own the house designed and lived in by Victor Bruno, the modernist architect who helped out with the Blue Plate Building's construction and was the man behind the 1960s-built Gallery Apartments, the Sarpy Residence on St. Charles Avenue, and this mid-century modern dwelling in Lake Terrace, to name a few. Built in 1993, the just-listed three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath Fontainebleau home has no shortage of windows—"light-filled rooms for a wonderful lifestyle, the listing promises— and two lovely patios; but it could probably use some interior upgrades (that red bathroom faucet is excellent, though!). The price tag for this 3,212-square-foot space: $525,000.
