This GLASS is absolutely half-full!!!!

Location: Bedford, NY - Price: $2M
Designed by Pritzker Prize winning American Architect: Philip Johnson.
(It is not as classy as the AT+T building)

From the Curbed article:

        Acclaimed mid-century architect Philip Johnson is probably best known for his iconic 1949 Glass House, built in New Caanan, Conn., as the architect's "private" residence. Today, the Glass House is renowned as one of the finest examples of Bauhaus-influenced modernist architecture; if you need a refresher, we happened to publish illustrator Maira Kalman's depiction of the dwelling yesterday. The New Caanan wonder might have kickstarted Johnson's career, but it wasn't his first commission. This three-bedroom brick-and-glass creation in Bedford, N.Y., marked Johnson's debut. Though it shares many similarities with the Glass House—an oversize verdant lot, the same material palette, the same basic form—it also seems timid next to his later exhibitionist masterpiece. With the Glass House controlled by the National Trust and unlikely to see the market ever again, $2M seems just about right for this temple to restraint.
