Located in north suburban Lincolnshire, Illinois, this handsome four-bedroom ranch strikes a balance between midcentury charm, modern convenience, and gorgeous outdoor spaces.

The “California Contemporary” home was constructed in 1957 by popular postwar builder Scholz Homes and has been continually improved and expanded over the past six decades by its original owners. The most recent addition is a striking courtyard entryway featuring a covered path flanked by zen gardens.

Inside, the bright property sports many Scholz trademarks including an abundance of windows and a living room with high cathedral ceilings. Out back, there’s a peaceful rear patio surrounded by lush vegetation and a moss garden.

The well-maintained, smartly refreshed ranch at 39 Cumberland Drive is currently asking $650,000—recently reduced from $700,000.
