Modernist Townhouse in Chicago
Doesn't this home have a glow about it? Built in 1978, this Lincoln Park townhouse was designed by acclaimed Chicago architect Larry Booth.

Booth was a founding member of the Chicago Seven, a rebellious group of postmodern architects who challenged the Windy City's modern buildings in the late '70s. Booth founded his firm, Booth Hansen, in 1980 – shortly after this home's completion.
We love the simplicity of this three-story house. The geometric lines, split-level spaces (check out the rear deck!) and partial walls scream modern chic. The tiered panes of glass at the front are responsible for that evening glow, and during the day, the hardwoods are highlighted by natural light.
This home proves that a simple space doesn't have to be without luxuries. Check out the Calacatta marble counters in the chef's kitchen, wine storage in the butler's pantry and parquet floors in the walk-in closet. And that curved staircase – well, there are just no words.
