It's no fireman's pole in the middle of the house, but a retractable roof over a swimming pool is still pretty damn cool.

At 2077 Partridge Lane in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, modern, mid-century modern elegance and a roof that opens and closes can be had for the asking price of $1,395,000, according to a recent Estately listing.
In addition to the retractable roof, this 5,100 square-foot home has what many million-dollar properties in the area don't: pretty nice interior design.
The home was built in 1962 and designed by the "innovative architectural partnership" of George and William Keck, according to the Tribune.
A single-story, the house is a five-bed five-bath stunner with a wine cellar, sauna and, according to the Tribune, "extensive" oak and granite from a mid-'90s renovation. Outside, a heated pool which sits below the retractable roof, along with a deck, a terrace and a hot tub.
According to the listing, each of the major rooms has outdoor access, making a dip in the pool or a s'mores toasting session in the outdoor fireplace a cinch.
Curbed Chicago has a lovely roundup of other Keck & Keck properties dotting the Chicagoland area with mid-century modern curb (and interior) appeal.
