Brookfield midcentury modern house for sale, listed at $1.2 million

Fifty years ago, local architect Eric Gnant told the Milwaukee Journal he “wanted to show how indoor-outdoor living can be done.”

The house he designed in Brookfield to bring that vision to life is now for sale, listed at $1.19 million by agent Colleen Resendiz.

Gnant’s midcentury modern home at 745 Janacek Road, with its tall windows and cathedral ceilings, brings the outdoors in. Natural materials such as Lannon stone and slate are featured throughout. Built in 1962, it is listed on the state historic register.

The midcentury modern home, at 745 Janacek Road in Brookfield, includes an indoor pool.

Featuring an indoor pool, a sauna and a wet bar, the home is also designed for entertainment. 

Gnant built the home for himself and his family, but he also designed it as a model for his clients — showing them what was possible.

Docomomo Wisconsin, a nonprofit committed to recognizing midcentury architecture in the state, said the home shows off Gnant’s signature style.
