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

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.
