If you long for the time before Space Age Love Songs became passe in Bucktown, you’ll probably want to pull this space age three-story out of the second-hand bin at the resale shop. The custom-built five-bedroom 4.5-bath single-family home at 2070 N Oakley Ave is so modern, you can use reflections off of its mirrored panels to tan yourself.
Even with little kids wandering around, you can spend your nights resting easier on the family-friendly second-floor with its three-bedrooms and two-baths. Perhaps unnerving, however, is that you’ll also have seven outdoor spaces to keep a watchful eye on.
Looking on the bright side, functionality is just as important as form – did we mention the two laundry rooms? If you’re still upset over what happened to the Artful Dodger, you can always belly up to your own wet bar and sleep peacefully knowing that the next morning, you can cleanse yourself in the privacy of your own gym, sauna and steam room.
And after that? Pull your hovercraft out of the two-car garage and wave at each Blue Line station you pass on your way to outer space.
