Property Description

Multiple offers received! Here's an amazing opportunity for you to own and live in a Mid-Century Modern treasure! This 1960 home was designed by its owner, architect Don Wrobleski, and has never been on the market until now. Trained at IIT with A. James Speyer and Alfred Caldwell, Wrobleski designed for himself a long, low, sophisticated home of glass, Wisconsin fieldstone and bleached cedar. Incorporating walls of glass, post and beam mill construction, beautiful natural materials, and drawing on the proportions from the masters of architecture of the time, 2200 Stirling Road enjoys a gorgeous, private setting of 1.75 acres at the end of a cul-de-sac, surrounded by mature trees. Step up to the front terrace, past the low, linear stone retaining wall, between two courtyards that offer privacy for the interior spaces, into the entry foyer of Vermont slate, carried through to other parts of the home. The grand, sunken Living Room is the first of the public and entertaining spaces to the left of the foyer, with its herringbone wood floors, massive stone fireplace with cantilevered hearth at one end and a set of built-ins at the other, with walls of glass both in front and in the back offering clear viewing through the home and a barreled ceiling area adding even more architectural interest. On the other side of the fireplace, the open Kitchen / Dining Room were designed with custom elm cabinets and a travertine bar counter defining the spaces. Still original since 1960, the kitchen features butcher block counters, cleverly-integrated appliances, including a floating cabinet with open shelving and indoor grill with custom hood, all tucked into the back side of the chimney stack. The expanded Dining area offers gorgeous views into the acreage behind the home, and a hidden wet bar is just one of the lovely features of this modernist gem that has been featured in various publications over the years as an extaordinary example of modern architecture. Continue through to the large screened porch where you'll enjoy views into the west courtyard and out into the back yard. A laundry area around the corner from the kitchen features a translucent panel offering borrowed south light into the kitchen, leads to a convenient powder room, and houses hide-away stairs to the utility basement. At the other end of the home, Wrobleski designed three bedrooms and two baths, including a private full bath for the large Primary Suite, which also has a sunken sleeping area, plentiful closets and beautiful views on three sides including into the east courtyard. The Primary bath features a sunken tub / shower and views into the east courtyard. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms both feature views into back yard and large closets spanning an entire wall of each room. The 2nd full bath also enjoys east courtyard views & privacy, and has a walk-in shower. Behind the home, a lovely, rolling landscape awaits, with multiple berms, a tiered patio space off of the Living Room, small pond and stream, and a pergola at the north side of the property, just inside the tree line. Multiple pathways lead along and through the trees on the west side of the home, and the 2-car garage integrates perfectly with the main home's structure, and includes a large storage area behind a lattice wall on the south side of the garage. This beautiful home is one of the finest modern designs in the Chicago area, and is in the heart of the ultra-desirable Bannockburn / Deerfield school system. Offered as-is, and will reward its new owners with an absolutely spectacular combination of home, site and location. Close to Bannockburn School! Estimated at 2,074 sf. PLEASE NOTE that the home is being sold as-is and will require that the new owners have the roof rebuilt. Please ask your Realtor for more details, or contact the listing agent.
