In the heart of Bucktown, this 20-year-old contempo does most things by convention: floor plates, height, footprint... but when it comes to windows, the design shows clear fatigue for your average bowed-out window bays. Instead of gentle curvature, there's sharp protrusions— to pretty cool effect. The slender home has three bedrooms, three-and-a-half marble bathrooms, a newly remodeled kitchen (on the small side), open staircase, vaulted ceilings, and a landscaped deck and backyard w/ matching two-car garage. Measuring about 2,300 square feet, the window configuration adds a spaciousness. This nifty ensemble last sold in 2002 for $511K and spent a year on the market in 2010-11. It's back this week with an ask of $729,800.
