Built in 1957, this striking mid-century modern ranch home, heavily inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture, is pending sale after hitting the market in October 2022 for $1.25 million in Wayne, Illinois. Listing details: First time for sale on the open market! Enwilde is the name that original owner Chester Trowbridge gave to his home in Wayne: 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. In addition to the bedrooms and bathrooms, the 4,153 square foot home features an inviting entry way, dining room with fireplace and high ceilings, a vast living room with wet bar, spacious family room with another massive fireplace, a modern kitchen with wood slat panels, a sun room / second dining area plus a large laundry and utility room.
Throughout the house you’ll find spectacular natural materials & desirable modern architectural features such as cypress walls & ceilings, New York bluestone floors with in-floor radiant heat, built-ins in almost every space and floor to ceiling windows offering calming views of the surrounding nature. Wonderfully sited on a 6.22 acre private lot (great for equestrians!) toward the end of a cul-de-sac, the brick & glass home enjoys acres surrounded by mature trees, as well as a multi-level stone patio, large in-ground pool and even has a barn with an upstairs studio. Just minutes from St. Charles shopping & restaurants. Don’t miss the opportunity to be the next stewards of this extremely special modern home! Featured in Crain’s and Modern Illinois! Enwilde is pending sale and on the market for $1.25 million with Lou Zucaro of Baird & Warner Barrington. Photography by Phil Hegel of VHT Studios. Photography used with permission from agent.
