Location: Barrington, Illinois
Few things are as instantly pleasing as the entryway to a midcentury modern ranch. At this sprawling house in the wooded suburbs of Chicago, the cherry red doors open to a stately double-sided brick fireplace that cuts the home’s great room in half.
It’s a stunning first impression for the home, which shows off quintessential midcentury modern style with vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and expansive rooms.
Its six bedrooms and three bathrooms stretch out horizontally, creating a subtly zig-zagging layout that allows for unexpected seating nooks both inside and out.
The house centers around the great room, a massive space with hardwood floors and windows that look out onto a marshy pond and trees. The room flows directly into the kitchen and dining area, creating an open floor plan that makes the home feel even more spacious than its 3,982-square-foot layout sounds.
If all that interior space doesn’t feel quite large enough, the home is part of a community that shares a 46-acre lake, private beach, and park. 65 Timberlake Parkway is now asking $770,000.
