A One-Owner Folded Plate Roof MCM Ranch in Glenview by Buderus & Sunshine

1321 Sleepy Hollow Road – Glenview

Available for the first time ever! What a wonderful custom built brick mid-century modern ranch! Designed by Brooks Buderus of Buderus & Sunshine, this 1962 home is almost entirely original. Loaded with beautiful MCM features, you’ll first notice how the home sits on its large corner lot and impresses from the street with the “folded plate” zig zag roof design. Step inside and you’re treated to a wonderland of mid-century goodness: The foyer opens up dramatically to the high vaulted ceiling of the living room, separated from the foyer by a wood slat screen. The kitchen has fantastic original cabinets with built-in organization and panels that allow for more privacy or openness depending on your needs at the moment. Walls of glass in the living room look out the patios on either side and the yard’s landscaping, and you can enjoy a comforting, cozy fire in the brick fireplace when the mood strikes. The folded plate roof design means all four bedrooms have vaulted, wood-clad ceilings and lots of natural light, thanks to large windows and the clerestory windows in the gables, too. Even the laundry is on the main level, allowing you to live in true one-level ranch style day to day. Downstairs you’ll find a family room with its own brick fireplace – excellent for a kids play space, hobby area or set up your perfect home bar space! Sleepy Hollow Park is right in the neighborhood, and you’ll be an easy walk to downtown Glenview as well! This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to secure your MCM dream home – one that was beautifully designed and hasn’t been remodeled out of character over the years. Sold “as-is” as part of an estate.
