See Inside: Glass House in Suburban Chicago on the Market
Tuesday, Jul 17, 2018
A two-story glass house in suburban Chicago is back on the market for nearly $800,000.
The striking home on Oak Lane Drive in Olympia Fields was designed by H.P. Davis “Deever” Rockwell, a student of Mies van der Rohe, as his own family residence.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home built in 1964 is known to many as the House on a Bluff and overlooks Butterfield Creek.
According to the listing, the home is "one of the most architecturally significant mid-century modern houses."
"Other glass houses on par are museums," the listing states.
Situated in a secluded wooded setting, the home has a private lower level living space and has been updated in recent years. It features a workshop, terrazzo floors, two skylights, double ovens and more. It also sits on 2.49 acres.
The current asking price is $749,000.
