Location: Glendale, Wisconsin
Built in 1963, this one-of-a-kind house in Wisconsin boasts a stunning central atrium that’s a natural focal point. A floating stairway with mini-octagons in the metal railing echoes the home’s shape, and decorative, light-infused panels at either end of the staircase draw the eye upward. Beneath it all, a zen-like garden and fountain bring the outdoors in and provide a serene auditory backdrop throughout the house.
Elsewhere, the home features lake views, five bedrooms, and four bathrooms. Floor-to-ceiling windows let in light, and in-floor heating lets you wander shoe-free. Original bathrooms and tile work remain, as does the fireplace on the main floor.
Outside the home provides access to a private beach to swim and multiple areas for outdoor entertaining.
If you’re dreaming of an octagonal home, 6628 North Atwahl Drive is on the market now for $489,900.
