Up for grabs in Oak Park is the very midcentury and very modernist I.M. and Fannabell Fixman House. Designed by the firm Schurecht, Inc., the house boasts a sleek, modern look, but it also pays homage to the nearby Prairie style homes that came before it. The house is decked out with dark, natural materials like mahogany, redwood, and brick. And while it has a time capsule quality to it, the listing agent mentions that the house has received several major improvements like a brand new roof and central air and heat.
While Oak Park may best known for its Frank Lloyd Wright-Prairie School of Architecture Historic District, this house proves that Chicago’s next door neighbor isn’t a one-trick pony. A designated Oak Park Landmark, the I.M. and Fannabell Fixman House can be yours for $499,000.
