Built in 1953 for Samuel and Dorothy Eppstein, the ranch-style home is an exemplary representation of Prairie School-style architecture and Usonian thinking. Constructed by the original homeowners, the midcentury residence displays a history of care and thoughtfulness in every detail.

Fast forward to today, and this still stands true. The home has been completely renovated and furnished, staying true to the original era of the home and preserving the handiwork, craft, and brilliance of the original. Such a massive undertaking was led by husband-and-wife team Tony Hillebrandt and Marika Broere after careful research and conversations with previous residents. The result is a beautiful restoration which respects the history of the home.



A curved concrete block wall conceals one of the three exterior terraces.  Low-slung roofs appear to hover above the landscape.
The cantilevered roofs and trim have been carefully painted and restored.  Large windows blend the exterior terrace with the inside living space.
Living and dining spaces wrap around the full-height fireplace.  Original light fixtures remain and have been outfitted with LED lights.
The original built in sofa remains in the Living Room.  Ten foot windows draw nature inside while Maharam and Knoll textiles decorate the furnishings.
