Built in 1970, this eight-bedroom, seven-bath house in Illinois is a sprawling take on late-midcentury design. Designed by architect John Vincent Anderson, the building—including a guest residence—measures 6,328 feet, making it a far cry from the modest tenants of Usonian design. But many of the much-loved aspects of midcentury style remain.

The low-slung ranch boasts post-and-beam ceilings with large windows that look out onto exterior patios. Overhang roofs form walkways around the home’s exterior, and natural stone helps to bring the outdoors in. The bedrooms also feature walk-out doors, many with views onto the property’s 12-acre lot.

Ready to make this stylish compound your own? 2109 Paulson Road is on the market now for $1,750,000.
