Things we love about this property crush:

Dream of living in a mid-century modern home? (Yeah, us too.) Designed by renowned architect Edward Humrich, this MCM Prairie-style house has all the classic features with just the right amount of updates. The huge living and dining space—with beautiful hardwood flooring—is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that look upon a pretty garden and patio. The adjacent wall has a massive brick hearth with built-in bookshelves. This leads to a kitchen with a Wolf stove, a double oven, and lots of pantry and counter space.

The master bedroom is huge and has loads of light; there’s a master bath with a glass-tiled shower, a quartz vanity, Grohe faucet, skylight, and (surprise!) an exposed brick wall. Two more bedrooms and a hall bath are updated and light-filled.

There’s a basement (bless you, Midwest) where we can easily imagine a retro bar cart and record player.

The home is located on 0.21 acres, with two stone patios and lush gardens—and there’s still room for a pool.
