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.
