We've seen geodesic domes, yurts, and yomes on Offbeat Home, but I think this is our first circular home. This restored vintage gem was designed by award-winning architecture firm Keck and Keck in Highland Park, Illinois (near Lake Michigan). This house has been contemporarily restored on the inside, but it still has the unique distinction of being built completely around a pool with a retractable roof.

And if you've got a cool $1,475,000 and are looking for the coolest home in Illinois, this unique home could be yours!

Yeah, it's pretty awesome. See for yourself…

Front entrance with awesome floating shelves.

The dining room. You can really see how this house is basically a donut shape with a pool in the middle and pretty lawn all around.

The tv room with the tv built-in to the wall.

Here's another sitting area with fireplace that backs up to a swanky bar.

I'm guessing the fireplace is two-sided and one of the four bedrooms is on the other side.

For privacy's sake, the bathroom doesn't have a pool view.

Here's another bedroom with floor to ceiling windows. I love how they used that artwork as a headboard.

Here's the contemporary kitchen with a big-ass island.

And finally, the super-awesome pool!

This aerial view shows what the retractable roof looks like when it's closed. Indoor pool!

Circular homes built around pools are awesome! Does anyone else know of other circular homes in their 'hoods?
