Stately Prairie Schooler in Glencoe asks $2.895M

This broad-shouldered home was designed by noted Prairie School architect E. E. Roberts

Like many popular architectural styles over the years, the Prairie School was comprised of numerous architects who may have shared a common philosophy but did things a bit different from one another. Take for instance this large nearly 6,000-square-foot mansion in north suburban Glencoe designed by noted architect E. E. Roberts. Built in 1911, the home is unmistakably Prairie School, but it’s got broad shoulders and makes a strong statement. It’s not your typical more modest Prairie style home and certainly provides a contrast to the Usonian brand of design championed by Frank Lloyd Wright. However, it still has a lovely foyer with an art glass door, heaps of custom Prairie style millwork, and lots of earthy colors. It’s a big house with flair, but isn’t overly flashy. This one entered the market earlier this week and can be had for $2.895 million.
