Though some might be turned off by its minimalist exterior and pillbox-like horizontal windows, this spacious Bucktown mansion is best enjoyed from the inside looking out. Designed by Chicago-based Osterhaus McCarthy Architects and completed in 2013, the contemporary six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home is full of natural light and blurs the line between indoors and out.
Stand-out features include an ultra modern kitchen trimmed in rift sawn oak cabinetry, Ann Sacks-designed bathrooms, a sky-lit upper level with a glass-walled hallway, and a wood-lined home office. The 7,500-square-foot residence also includes a walk-in wine cellar, a secluded side patio, and an attached 3.5-car garage.
Located within walking distance of the Clybourn Metra stop, Walsh Park, and The 606 elevated trail, the sleek mansion is in the heart of Chicago’s hot Bucktown neighborhood and is hoping to fetch a hefty chunk of change. The newly-listed property is currently seeking $3,675,000.
