This Wayne, Illinois property was originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and ended up looking like the house from The Brady Bunch.
Wayne, Illinois is an affluent city in the western suburbs of Chicago just south of Elgin, where Rt. 59 intersects Rt. 64. If you’ve been through there, you know the houses can be pretty nice.
This is one of the best. Listed for $1.25 million, it is one of the most unique homes in Illinois.
Zillow – A beautiful, sprawling, Usonian-inspired MCM/mid-century modern ranch home situated on 6+ beautiful, private acres. Trowbridge had originally hired Frank Lloyd Wright to design the home, but Wright ended the relationship, so the architect is unknown – however, the home is strongly influenced by Wright’s architecture. Built in 1957 and expanded in 1977, the home features 4 bedrooms (including one with its own fireplace), 3 1/2 baths, and a wonderful layout perfect for those who love organic modern or MCM design.
The property is fantastic. Let’s take a look at what makes this house unique.
Maybe it’s just me, but the low roof and abundant brickwork make me think of the classic 70s look immortalized by the Brady Bunch house.
The theme continues to the interior, where every room has some exposed brick and wood tones dominate.
The backyard is also beautiful. More on that in a bit.
Is this the perfect nap room? It looks like it.
Not sure if the artwork is part of the purchase. It is interesting.
Open concept bathroom looks amazing.
Here is the bedroom with the fireplace.
More counter space than you know what to do with in the laundry room.
You know a place is expensive when it has a toilet you don’t recognize. It’s almost another work of art.
And speaking of fireplaces. This one in the living room is massive.
Another beautiful bedroom. You might want some blackout shades for this room.
The property also includes a barn…
It happens to be beautifully decorated inside. That barn is nicer than most houses.
Enjoy it all from your in-ground pool while surveying your rolling 6 acre property.
Truly a unique floor plan. A gem in the western suburbs.
