This week’s featured home was designed by a local architect to be his personal residence in 1987. The house is filled with sky lights, round walls and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook Sligo Creek and Sligo Park.

“You feel like you’re communing with nature even though you’re living in luxury,” said Welene Goller of W.C. & A.N. Miller Realtors. “It’s absolutely stunning.”

The four-bedroom house has an artist’s studio, library and wet bar. It is on the market for $1.2 million.
