This Million Dollar Illinois Home Looks Like The Brady Bunch House
This estate in Wayne, Illinois was originally supposed to be designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and ended up looking like the house from The Brady Bunch.
Wayne, Illinois is an affluent town in the western suburbs of Chicago just south of Elgin where Rt. 59 intersects Rt. 64. If you've been through there you know that the houses can get pretty nice.
This is one of the best. Listed for $1.25 million, it is one of the most unique homes in Illinois.
Zillow - A gorgeous, sprawling, Usonian-inspired MCM / mid-century modern ranch home set on 6+ beautiful, private acres. Trowbridge had originally hired Frank Lloyd Wright to design the home, but Wright ended the relationship, so the architect is unknown - however, the home is heavily influenced by Wright's architecture. Built in 1957 and expanded in 1977, the home features 4 bedrooms (including one with its own fireplace), 3 1/2 baths and a wonderful layout perfect for those who love organic modern or MCM design.
The property is stunning. Let's take a look at what makes this house unique.
It might just be me but the low pitched roof and abundant brick work makes me think of the classic 70s look immortalized by the Brady Bunch house.
The theme continues to the interior where every room has some exposed brick and wood tones dominate.
The back yard is gorgeous as well. More on that in a bit.
Is this the perfect napping room? It looks like it.
Not sure if the artwork is part of the purchase. It's...interesting.
Open concept bathroom looks amazing.
Here's the bedroom with the fireplace.
More counterspace than you know what to do with in the laundry room.
You know a place is expensive when it has a toilet that you don't recognize. It's almost another piece of art.
And speaking of fireplaces. This one in the living room is massive.
Another beautiful bedroom. You might want some blackout shades for this room.
The property comes with a barn as well....
That just so happens to be beautifully appointed on the inside. That barn is nicer than most houses.
Enjoy it all from your in-ground pool while surveying your rolling 6 acres of property.
Truly a unique floorplan. A gem in the western suburbs.
