House of the Week: $4 million for a light-filled, ultra-modern Yorkville home
The Place: A brand-new backsplit filled with modern touches (zinc cladding, a home-automation system and a Scavolini kitchen, to name just a few), located steps from the Mink Mile.
Bragging Rights: The 20-foot light installation in the atrium adds a lively, sculptural touch to what could otherwise be a chilly interior.
Big Selling Point: Despite the narrow lot, the rooms seem incredibly spacious, thanks in part to natural light admitted by the house’s floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights.
Possible Deal Breaker: With a backyard free of grass, doggie bathroom breaks will require a walk around the block.
By The Numbers:
• $11,801.74 in property taxes (2014)
• 3,715 square feet
• 6 skylights
• 3 bedrooms
• 3 bathrooms
• 3-car parking
