In 1938, visionary architect Andrew Rebori designed a modernist townhouse and coach house on a narrow plot of land amongst the stately homes of Chicago's Gold Coast. The home was purchased from Rebori by Lillian Florsheim, the shoe heiress and sculptor, in 1946. She lived there and, later, commissioned her son-in-law Bertrand Goldberg (who designed Marina Towers) to connect the 2 buildings with a fantastic bridge kitchen. Take a look at this website for lots of information and some great historic images of the house as it looked when Lillian lived there.
It is currently being offered for sale by its present owner for $2,500,000. You can view listing information here.
This home is a real treasure of Chicago architectural history and has been lovingly preserved over the decades by caring owners-let's hope that continues.
