Property Description

Modernist steel and glass home designed by architect Richard Marker as his own home, carefully designed for maximum privacy. Think in the style of Mies van der Rohe, Philip Johnson, A. James Speyer and David Haid. Situated on a forested parcel for maximum privacy and connection to surrounding nature. Blocks from two Metra Train Stations, downtown Downers Grove, all three schools (Pierce Downer Elementary, Herrick Middle, and North High School), and Prince Pond. The unique home boasts original features including white oak flooring, wood ceilings, floor to ceiling glass walls and windows, skylights, circular steel columns, and metal spiral staircase. Imagine observing the seasonal changes like never before...sitting by the fireplace as snow falls, or relaxing in the screened Porch with a glass ceiling, birds chirping, clouds passing overhead. Children who grew up in the home loved the feeling of being in a tree house. The home has the perfect combination of an open floor plan with intimate spaces, flexible rooms, views out of every exterior wall. Living Room offers various seating areas and Dining Room has room to expand a table to any size. Master Bedroom has an attached full renovated Bathroom and Den/flex room that overlooks the natural backyard. Full size basement offers a Recreation Room with wet bar, half bathroom, workshop, plenty or storage space, exterior access. Many updates include new, high efficiency dual HVAC system, appliances, bathrooms, refinished floors. Super low utilities. Truly, a rare opportunity to live in a work of art that offers a lifestyle few have the opportunity to experience.
