The home’s interiors echo the dense forest outside its massive windows.
A modern glass house is up for sale in Downers Grove, Illinois, about 25 miles west of downtown Chicago. Built in 1974, the home was originally designed by local architect Richard Marker as his own family residence. Today, the steel structure retains its original glass facade and wood interior, along with some modern updates and a large basement that nearly doubles the home in size.
Offering a main level of just over 2,000 square feet, the home also comes with a partially finished, 1,440-square-foot basement. The open living and dining area is brightly lit by several skylights, which add to the natural light already flooding the home from floor-to-ceiling glass walls along the perimeter. The main level rounds out with four bedrooms and two full bathrooms, along with an office/study area. Downstairs, the basement offers a second living area, a workshop, half bath, and wet bar.
