Tucked away in Lake Forest is this retro modern single story home designed by revered North Shore architect Walter Frazier. The home with its simple lines and long walls of windows certainly has some aesthetic similarities to Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House or Eero Saarinen’s Miller House. Although Frazier may not be as well known or regarded as other mid century masters, this 6,500 square foot home built in 1955 should appease even the most staunch modern purists. The home sits on a huge 21 acre lot, of which nine have been dedicated to conservation, and also includes a separate three bedroom guest house. The whole shebang can be scored for $7.2 million.
