Well, it’s $4,999,000

The glass block house that was featured on Curbed when it went on the market back in November now has an asking price of $4,999,000.

The home at 145 Neck Path in Springs went on the market at $5.5 million through Douglas Elliman. Finished in 2016, it’s looking for its very first owner.

The see-through home was brought to fruition by two creatives—designed by Juan A. Figueroa, who did the Williamsburg Savings Bank restoration in Brooklyn, and engineered by Jeff Smilow, the structural engineer of New York City’s Freedom Tower.

At 10,000-square-feet on almost two acres of land, this structure offers plenty of space. And with six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms, there’s plenty of space for guests, too.

As far as floor plans are concerned, nothing less than an open one could be expected. The first floor alone has about 5,000-square-feet of glass walls. There are two staircases, one of which leads to two master suites, and the other leads to the four guest bedrooms.

The master suites both have custom-made walk-in closets with skylights, which isn’t much of a surprise in a home like this. The master bathrooms are composed of natural stones and white quartz, have double shower heads, and a soaking tub. But bathers beware—the bathrooms also have the same walls of glass featured throughout the home. Good thing the landscaping provides some privacy.

There’s a connecting tunnel to the basement, which has a four-car garage and what the listing describes as a “finished basement lobby.”

Outside, there’s a heated salt water gunite pool and hot tub surrounded by 20 acres of a preserve.
