This 1950 Richard Barancik and Conte-built home feels like a treehouse

This suburban 1950 three-bedroom, three-and-half-bathroom ranch is one of roughly a dozen homes penned by Chicago architect Richard Barancik before the designer shifted his attention towards modernist downtown high-rises such 990 and 1212 N. Lake Shore Drive. Thanks to its ravine-front location, the home is ideal for any enthusiast of mid-century design also seeking a sanctuary among the tress. While the Highland Park home may lack a glassy detached garage to house your priceless classic Ferrari, the property does come with a cantilevered dining room that surrounds its occupants with green foliage.

Located steps from the Metra rail line and the Ravinia outdoor music festival, the home also offers an outdoor patio, a refreshed kitchen, cozy wood-lined living room and den, and original built-in bespoke storage throughout the master bedroom. Now seeking $848,000, the property has seen a considerable reduction from its October ask of $1,099,000.
