Architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen's "A Village of One's Own" just took another $200,000 price cut, still unable to find its long sought-after second owner. Now listed for $1,400,000, the house inspires, it seems, adoration and existential musings in equal measure:

"Dear Americans, why do you need an extra bathroom for every bedroom? Do you spend days in there, or do you make such a mess that no one else could use the bathroom?" —Wolf The modern abode is fashioned of five connected "pavilions," (hence the "village" moniker) each unique, yet rendered somewhat homogenous under a giant vat of white paint. The four-bedroom, four-bath residence boasts cathedral ceilings, dormer skylights, and a stunning library with floor-to-ceiling shelves and a spiral staircase. A 25 foot-wide "village street" separates the residence from the four-car garage. Proximity to Montgomery County's veritable treasure trove of homes of questionable taste comes gratis.
