Built in 1953, this North Shore home with a mahogany-lined interior is a midcentury modern dream with many nods to the earlier Arts & Crafts style. The Glencoe property was one of just a handful of single-family residences by architect Richard Barancik before the designer went on to pen a number of downtown high-rises like 990 N. Lake Shore Drive and the Eugenie Terrace apartments.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home offers a flowing floorplan with vast swaths of warm wood on the walls, ceiling, and floors—plus wrap-around windows showing off the surrounding wooded lot. Other standout features include a sturdy brick hearth in the living room, an updated gallery kitchen, a finished walk-out lower level, and a bright master suite with sliding barn-style doors and a renovated white marble bathroom.
Out back, you’ll find a newly added stone patio spanning two levels. The space includes a gas-burning fire table, an outdoor kitchen with a stone bar, and plenty of room to entertain. The unique midcentury home is listed by Karen Arenson of Engel & Völkers Chicago for $798,000. It last sold for $665,000 in 2015, according to records.
