In a part of town with as much architectural variety as anywhere, it's not surprising to find an austere midcentury modern structure flanked by more garrulous old timers. At first glance, the design of this 4-bed looks pretty safe, but roll around to the backside and you'll encounter a sheer glass wall easily 20 feet high. The back section of the house leaps skyward in accordance. With all this to feast on, it's almost tragic that there's nothing exceptional going on inside. Visit the listing and see for yourself. The other notable thing is that ownership of this house, at 1328 E Madison, brings rights to the private Madison Park, one of just three private parks in Chicago. Sorta brings NYC's Gramercy to mind. The ask? $985K.
