Lake Forest ranch with glass walls and vaulted ceilings asks $975K

The three-bedroom home was an early contemporary work by architect Charles Page

Fans of midcentury modern architecture will find plenty to like about this hillside ranch in suburban Lake Forest, Illinois. The 1971 home boasts many of the style’s hallmark characteristics such as an open floorplan, vaulted wood tongue and groove ceilings, glass walls, and rough-hewn stone fireplaces.

The split-level residence comes from notable Chicago-area architect Charles Page. The designer completed many similar contemporary-style homes early in his career before embracing a French-inspired aesthetic in the 1980s.

The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home includes a striking blue study with built-in shelving, a bright master suite with an attached solarium, and a large walk-out deck connected to its kitchen. Other features include an attached garage, a rear patio, and a finished basement rec room with an office and ample storage space.

Situated on a private 1.37-acre landscaped lot, the well-preserved North Shore property is currently listed for $975,000—down a bit from its 2018 asking price of $1.1 million.
