Award-Winning Mid-Century Glass House Sells for $605K

New, 3 comments

One of the most striking mid-century glass houses in the Chicago area has officially sold this week, fetching $605,000. Know as the H.P. Davis Rockwell House, the Olympia Fields home was built in 1964 by H.P. Davis "Deever" Rockwell of Brenner Danforth Rockwell as the architect's personal residence. Comparisons to Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House aren't too far off, as Rockwell was a student of the legendary architect who taught the mantra "less is more." The 3,600-square-foot home is a such a great example of the minimalist glass house style that the American Institute of Architects took note and awarded its architect for its design in 1965. The house, which listing agent Joe Kunkel described as sort of a living museum, hit the market last June asking $619,000.
