Riverside, IL has a lot to offer. Especially for the modern family.
Best of both worlds. On the one hand, it’s a quaint and quiet village with a thriving business district that provides necessities and luxuries alike. A suburban gem. On the other hand, residents enjoy the added benefit of easy access to downtown Chicago, including reliable public transportation.
Commute to the city every day? Thanks to Riverside’s fantastic location, your commute is shorter…which means more time home with your family instead of sitting in traffic or on a train for hours.
For the curious and growing minds in your household, Riverside gives you access to wonderful schools and close proximity to other opportunities for the learning, including the renowned Brookfield Zoo.
350 Fairbank Road has a lot to offer. Especially for the modern family.
It is a unique home with history—and it’s ready for your family’s fresh start.
This historic home, also known as the Avery Coonley Playhouse, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the early 1900s to be used as a private school. It’s been used as a private residence since 1919.
Don’t let the age of this home fool you. Like most of Wright’s work, its modern and open design was ahead of its time…and its actually a perfect fit for today’s family lifestyle.
The structure ticks all the boxes for “modern, open floor plan” that almost all families want nowadays…but with the added bonus of not looking like any of those other cookie-cutter homes that meet the same criteria.
The floor plan of the home functions in favor of parents who desire open sightlines and space for the family to spread out. There’s even a separate structure in the back yard that could be a perfect playroom for the young ones, yoga studio for mom, workshop for dad, or an art studio for the whole family to enjoy together.
Mike McCurry & The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy hosted a virtual open house on June 24, 2020, of this historic home. Check it out!
