Originally built in 1952, this split-level ranch style home was purchased in 2012 by its current owners. The home sits on a half-acre lot perched high above the street level, with expansive views of the surrounding urban forest. When the home was acquired, it had been severely neglected and was in dire need of improvement. The new owners, who own a designer-led design build group, saw a unique opportunity to transform the property with more attention to context and a mid-century modern aesthetic.

Lawndale - Stevens Park Village

The streamlined curves of the roof set this 1941 house apart from its siblings in the Stevens Park Village neighborhood. Austin stone is the common denominator throughout facades in this traditional neighborhood, and 2249 Lawndale Drive takes it to the next level, entirely enveloped in what appears to be unequal blocks of alabaster. A low-slung, hipped roof and partial parapet disguise the ridge, practically providing a flat roof appearance from the street. These facets all crown the home’s overall clean and modern lines. In a neighborhood alleged to have up to a dozen Charles Dilbeck designs, quirkiness abounds, and idiosyncrasies such as terra cotta rosettes, a front porch planter and multiple window forms can be found at 2249.

S. Windomere - Winnetka Heights

W.H. Goodnight was a contractor who built many homes in Winnetka Heights during the early 1900s. He built this craftsman-style bungalow in 1913. The house was originally described as a “six-room cottage” and sold for $2,000. The first owner was John K. Wood, a bond clerk at Citizen’s Bank & Trust Co. Sometime in the 1940s the Lancaster family moved in and daughter Elizabeth lived in the house until she passed away in the late 1980s. The house sat vacant until the late 1990s when the previous owner purchased the home and began extensive renovations. The current owner purchased the home after seeing it was for sale during the 2003 OOCCL Fall Home Tour.
