A five-bedroom 1962 home designed by noted architect brothers William and George Fred Keck has knocked $110,000 off its November asking price. Situated on a 1.72-acre wooded lot in suburban Highland Park, Illinois, the flowing, oval-shaped home can now be had for $1,590,000.
Like an early prototype for modern sports arenas, the home’s most striking feature is a power retractable roof above its centrally-located swimming pool. Perfect for entertaining, the indoor/outdoor space is accessible from practically every room in the house and makes for some dynamic cross-home views.
With the recent price reduction it appears the current owner is serious about unloading the property. Hopefully the home won’t face the same fate as Keck & Keck’s 1955 "Blair House" in nearby Lake Bluff, Illinois. The architecturally-significant lakefront ranch was recently demolished and listed for sale as vacant land.
