Mid-Century Modernist Home w/ Debt to Wright Lowers Ask

New, 7 comments

When this mid-century ranch house hit the market late last summer in southwest suburban Evergreen Park our readers scoffed at the $439,000 price tag. "Who would pay close to half a million to live in Evergreen Park?" wrote an anonymous commenter, "This has to be a joke." Another reader thought it had one too many zeros— that $43,000 was more appropriate. We won't go that far, but it's not surprising to have witnessed the ax fall once or twice in the intervening months. Now asking $379,000, perhaps folks will begin to take interest in the house's makeup. The 2,500-square-foot, highly-transparent home has lots of quality stuff like "designer restored" slate floors, cypress paneling, and a two-sided fireplace with a tile fresco. Sliding glass doors connect the living and dining rooms with a landscaped courtyard. Then there's the whole "Frank Lloyd Wright look-alike" bit. There are some Wright influences, but can that not be said of many a modernist home?
