Lake View's House Of Rock, Literally (PHOTOS)

A Lake View homeowner decided to go with a unique theme in his condo.

Homeowner Kurt Gruenberg, a Chicago designer, used his home as a personal studio to teach himself rockscaping techniques.

Gruenberg told HuffPost Chicago the home combines "contemporary elegance with Roman Gothic motifs to create a one-of-a-kind dwelling." He owned a rockscape business for many years and used the waterfall rockscape and other projects in his home to show potential clients the quality of his work.

The 1,925 square-foot home includes two bedrooms, 2.5 baths and took Gruenberg about three years to renovate.

The condo also features a marble bath with columns, exercise room, indoor pool and kitchen island with a built-in computer monitor.

"It's not just a rockscape, it has a technological function too," Gruenberg said. "With all the amenities offered by the Barry Quadrangle Condominiums, city living has never been so easy."

Located at in the 800 block of West Barry Avenue, the home is listed for $499,900.
