Swervy David Swan-Designed PoMo Home Re-Lists for $1.525M

New, 10 comments


A tipster steered Curbed to the listing of a David Swan PoMo home in Hyde Park. One of a row of three freestanding works by the Chicago architect, this 3,700-square-foot four-bed lays down its long wavy body at the corner of Kimbark & 58th, directly opposite U of C buildings. Built in 1982, the home's dimensions are a little more conventional than the neighboring Swan structures— there's no semicircular rooftop protrusions, and, regrettably, no attached greenhouse. The window arrangement delivers intrigue, while mirror walls, tall curtains, and minimalist furnishings impart the desired 'modernist' stamp. The main floor is wide open with updates in the right places, the master suite alone measures 690 square feet, and custom fireplaces are scattered about. The ask: $1.525M.
