Enjoy the Great Outdoors in this Suburban Architectural Home

July 17, 2014

One may not immediately think of architectural homes when they hear of the northwest suburb Palatine, but tucked away in the trees and greenery lies this Usonian-style home built by James Dresser, a student of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The three bedroom ranch home is situated on a two acre lot which Salt Creek runs through, and received an extension by architects Schiller & Frank shortly after it was built in 1956 during the modernist boom. However, as it stands, the 2,678 square foot home needs a substantial amount of work and love, but it definitely has potential to be a relaxing weekend retreat or permanent home away from the hustle and bustle of city living. This outdoorsy mid-century modern gem is currently asking $650,000.
