Mid-Century James Speyer Designed Glass Home Earns $607K


A glassy North Shore home designed by James Speyer, a student of Mies van der Rohe and master of Mid-Century Modernism, has officially ended its five month run on the market, selling for $607,300. While the name might not seem immediately recognizable, Speyer's work throughout the Chicago area most certainly is. Ferris Bueller fans familiar with the famous Ferrari house that belonged to Cameron Frye in the film might not realize it at first, but this Lake Forest home was designed by the same architect that built the modernist glass home in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The home originally listed in January, asking $745,000. However, after three price cuts, the owners settled on an offer just over the $600K mark. For just a few thousand more, mid-century aficionados might want to consider an award-winning glass home in south suburban Olympia Fields.
