What's so wrong with playing with perceptions of space and matter while taking a crap? Nothing at all by the reasoning invested in one of this North Shore modernist mini-mansion's bathrooms. The entire property is spectacle, with its clashing reddish-brown hardwoods and bone-white walls and ceilings, interior glass block walls, double-height living room, rotunda, and floating spiral staircase. But this secondary bathroom stores its own visual marvels, with mirrored walls and ceilings and opaque forms that climb into the reflective field with blocky geometry. Take it as an infinite skyline if you prefer, which may well be the intention. The 1990 construction boasts five beds, four full baths, and just about 6,000 square feet of living space, set three blocks from public beach access. The ask: $1.249M.
