Well-regarded local architecture firm Wheeler Kearns, responsible for the 1601 W Division design, also expends a lot of energy building slammin' single-family contempos in Lincoln Park. This 6,500-square-foot five-bed benefits from a broad girth, high ceilings, skylights, custom elm cladding and built-ins, all-steel kitchen, multiple outdoor spaces, and, of course, "total house automation." Hopefully it won't get up and walk away on you. Quirkier stuff includes a trough-like steel bathtub, colorful mosaic tile, and an outdoor fireplace. The listing asks for $3.995M after selling for $3M in 2009. Following construction, the original owner sought $4.75M but those hopes were quickly dashed.
