This must be the first time the word 'oculus' has been used in a listing description. But when the home includes this tower with a skylight dubbed "The Eye of God" it certainly seems called for. The home, designed by local architect Mark McInturff, also includes a metal library with its own nickname ("bookhenge") and overlooks the Reservoir for sort-of waterfront views. The light-colored hardwood floors make it feel almost Swedish, and the two working fireplaces can make it feel chalet-like if the mood requires. For three bedrooms, plenty of glassy interiors, and a total of 4,119 square feet the contemporary manse is asking $1,950,000.
