R. Harold Zook may perhaps not be as well known as other early twentieth century architects that left their mark on the Chicago area, however, Zook designed dozens of high-end homes in the suburbs and some notable commercial buildings like the now-demolished Salerno Cookie factory and Park Ridge's Pickwick Theatre. While Zook had a good eye for Art Deco designs, this five bedroom home built in 1932 leans towards the Tudor Revival style. The listing details, a wall of all-capitalized text, indicates that the home is centered around a 70-foot tower, which can be seen in a couple of the photos. The home has clearly been updated over the years as the kitchen and bathrooms look virtually brand new. This home from a Chicago area master can be had for $1.499 million.
