Lovers of Frank Lloyd Wright-style architecture will feel their breath catch when they tour this midcentury contemporary Inverness home designed by Don Erickson, a student of Wright.

Interior meets exterior for those living in this brick and frame home, with its floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lovely 1.6-acre parcel upon which the home sits. Dramatic modernistic details abound, elevating this home from the status of abode to artwork.

One-story living combines here with an open floor plan, stunning new kitchen, wet bar, vaulted ceilings, skylights, heated floors and three wood-burning fireplaces. The partially-finished basement includes a recreation room.

A quiet location and the mature landscaping with patio are impressive.

Listing agent Chris Jacobs of Century 21 in Barrington offers more details:
