For Sale | Krisjanis Grants Mid-Century Modern Home in Portage, Michigan

This Portage property and MidModMich share a major common factor - they were both designed by Krisjanis Grants, an architect from Latvia.

When I started my own history search on our home last December, I'm thankful that search included finding two of the original owner's sisters, one of whom knew the name of the architect. After I had his name, I was able to dig into more history.

In the Grand Haven area, there are at least three properties, MidModMich included, designed by Grants. And this Portage property, about two hours away from us in Grand Haven, was also designed by him. I'm excited to share these images today!

Much of the home has been remodeled and looks great, but I personally love the original bathroom, and also seeing the V-shaped supports outside; we have the same ones on our overhangs! The walkout is also a huge plus for me - a basement with living space (with windows!) was on our wish list. And, oh, 500' feet of riverfront property isn't bad either!

Amazing outdoor space is included on this over 3.5 acre plot - perfer for a large family, or people who love to entertain!

If you're interested in seeing this property in person, I suggest contacting:
