    Description

    This one-of-a-kind custom home was designed and built in 1955 by architect Rodney Wright, a pioneer of passive solar architectural design, as his own residence. This true mid-century modern home combines elements of glass, metal, wood and solid surface flooring to optimize energy efficiency and comfort, while seamlessly integrating its unique architectural esthetics with the natural beauty of the property. The premium one-acre lot backs to forest preserve and provides an abundance of majestic mature trees and privacy. Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home showcase the natural beauty of the property and afford views from almost every room in the house. Exceptional craftsmanship and architectural design are reflected inside and out. Vaulted ceilings throughout the home are all planked in knotty pine. Living room has hardwood flooring with soaring ceiling and raised-roof skylights and features custom craftsman-style built-in cabinetry. The kitchen is the heart of the home with its double-sided brick hearth fireplace. It features ceramic tile flooring, granite countertops, and an abundance of custom quarter-sawn oak craftsman-style cabinetry. A large island and separate dining area create the perfect setting for family dinners and entertaining. The cozy yet spacious living room is separated from the kitchen by the double-sided fireplace, providing an open-concept living space. Generous master suite boasts luxury master bath with spa tub and large walk-in closet. Three additional bedrooms and an updated full bath are in a separate wing. Third and fourth bedrooms could easily be converted back to a larger third bedroom. Nostalgic main floor home theatre room with sunken seating area and TV projector system features large wet bar, ceramic tile, half bath and lots of hidden storage. Artist's loft is perched atop home theater wing and provides the perfect getaway with panoramic views. Detached 2-car garage is separated by fenced courtyard. Convenient location to town, train, expressway, Forest Preserves, and Lake Minear, Oak Grove K-8, and Libertyville High School. So many details and unique features make this home a rare and truly exceptional property!
