Coming at you from Lincoln Park is this new-to-market single-family facadectomy. All but the facade on this 1912 house has been replaced by machines. That is to say, a beautifully-constructed steel and glass cage grows out from under it and exposes interiors to the back yard. The large lawn is "perfect for croquet", and nestled just behind it is the pool house, with a lap pool. Designed by Wheeler Kearns Architects, this 6BR/6BA voyeur's delight even comes with a separate studio apartment for guests or, states the listing, nannies. With such an elegant and tranquil space, wouldn't kids ruin it? The ask: $4.75M.
