Bold Modern Home in Sycamore, IL - 3,270 sqft. ($319,900)
A real eye-catcher here in the form of very large and light-filled house. Entering between two blank faced volumes (the garage and rear of the house) the architect has set up a wonderful reveal moment as you step into the open plan living area. Love the banks of doors opening out onto the balcony. Beautiful original mahogany panelling and wood trim details. This 1967 house seems to go on and on and the 2.33 acre lot offers further possibilities.

Glass walls, wood panelling, original built ins, kitchen appliances, lighting fixtures - the list goes on. This one will surely go quickly.
