Noted Chicago architect Dennis Blair declared this masterful, modernist Schell House his favorite residential work.

Blair was known for his use of granite stone walls, which are hollow in the center to provide a thermal break between the interior and exterior.

After working under Frank Lloyd Wright on the Guggenheim Museum, Dennis Blair spent decades between the ’50s and ’70s designing dozens of elegant, modernist homes around the greater Chicago area. 

Yet, according to listing agent Lou Zucaro of Baird & Warner, the house that the late architect regarded as his magnum opus was completed in the middle of his career—the 1959 Schell House.

Located on a 2.6-acre lot, the residence is set far back from the street for privacy and is set adjacent to the Reed-Turner Woodland Preserve.

Located an hour outside Chicago near the historic village of Long Grove, Blair’s pavilion-style stunner recently hit the market for $1,200,000.



The covered entrance walkway that leads to a oversized bronze door is bordered by a long granite wall on one side and open woodland on the other.

Crafted to enhance the idyllic landscape of native prairie and ancient woodland, the four-bedroom, three-bath home is defined by massive walls of glass, split-face granite, and cedar.
