Location: Elm Grove, Wisconsin
It’s not everyday we come across a home like this. Built in 1966 and designed by midcentury American architect William Wenzler—whose portfolio of boundary-pushing works includes one of the earliest saddle roof designs in the United States—the 4,567-square-foot residence is a daring mix of stone, wood, and glass, with impressive proportions and one-of-a-kind spaces throughout.
As you can see, the interior is as dedicated to the use of stone as the exterior, with the material featuring prominently in the double height living room, dining area, staircase, as well as all four bedrooms and the bathrooms. Wood then becomes the perfect complement, softening things up in the ceilings, kitchen cabinetry, and built-in storage around the home.
The home has a bit of curvaceous flow to it. For example, the dining room, and bedrooms “wrap” around walls and built-ins, while a bathroom and indoor pool all make use of curved edges. Another point of distinction is the range of window shapes and proclivity for recessed lighting both on ceilings and the floor.
The property, located at 15000 Cascade Drive, is on the market for $745,000.
