All-Glass Illinois Mansion Not Good if You Like Walking Around Naked
This house is a showcase for creative architecture, but it also gives me some strange vibes. It's hard to fake 'not being home' when a random visitor stops by.
From the very first picture, this home piqued my interest. While the old saying says,
"People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."
Or, run around naked.
If you enjoy checking out houses, this would be one of the most unique homes I've seen in a while. Built in 2002, this Northfield, Illinois home is not for everyone.
- 5,500 square feet
- 5 Bedrooms
- 4.5 Bathrooms
- Winner of 2008 American Institute of Architects Award for interior architecture
While it may be difficult to hide yourself from visitors, it's not impossible, the home does have a remarkable basement perfect for entertaining (and I assume not able to be seen from outside).
Would you ever get comfortable with your home life on display like this?
The glass walls surround the home, but something else surrounds the home that takes away the discomfort of feeling like anyone can peek in on you.
Another spectacular feature of this home is its complete immersion into an acre of natural surroundings that protect the privacy of your 'naked day' activities... or anything else you're into that you don't want other people to see.
The Glass Palace is located at 5 Rolling Ridge Road in Northfield. It was recently sold for $2,420,000.
