Location: Cleveland, Ohio
The Skinny: Designed by Cleveland-based architect Robert Maschke, this is one of three sleek "urban villas," as they're billed, at the Residences of King's Hill development and scored an American Institute of Architects award shortly after it was built in 2008. Let's defer to the project description for the details: C-House "elicits a substantive and billboard-like quality to the architecture, an unexpected and iconic presence for commuters between Cleveland's downtown and western suburbs" and is "utilized to imbue the architecture with a sense of otherness from the landscape." Layman's terms? It's 4,000-square-foot home with three bedrooms and four baths; a design of stacked volumes (creating cantilevers and shadows on the verdant property); green features including passive cooling and daylighting; and brand-name interior trappings such as Kohler and Hansgrohe. "Nestled into the hillside" with views of Lake Erie, the place is listed for $1.25M.
