Listed for $2.3M, the 1951 Glore House matches contemporary updates with original details.
Set along the shores of Lake Michigan, the leafy Chicago suburb of Lake Forest has a lot to offer—from swimming beaches and forest preserves to quaint European-inspired shopping villages and cafes. Unlike other Chicago suburbs, which are home to multiple Frank Lloyd Wright–designed residences, Lake Forest has only has one—and it’s a stunner.
Completed in 1954, the Charles F. Glore House sits on a nearly two-acre lot, just one block from the lake. Stretching across 4,300 square feet, the home features four bedrooms, four baths, large living areas, and multiple outdoor spaces.
Modern updates include an expansive kitchen with cabinetry modeled after the original and a luxurious master bath—however the contemporary changes were achieved without diminishing the home’s midcentury character.
Notable original features include built-in bookshelves, mahogany panels, and exposed brick walls. The home’s most captivating feature may be the cathedral ceiling in the living room, which rises like the bow of a ship. Keep scrolling to see more of the property, currently listed for $2,275,000.
