Riverwoods, Illinois isn’t just your average American town— it’s a midwestern Mid Century haven. Filled with over 40 homes designed by architect Edward Humrich (who was self-taught and heavily inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright), Riverwoods offers unique homes that seem to blend into their lush surroundings.

One of these homes is 72 Treasure Lane, a two bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom retreat on the market for $799,000. Built in 1969, this home contains two circular rooms that are framed in expansive glass windows that look out to the dreamy forest.

The impressive kitchen of 72 Treasure Lane is perfect for your most complicated recipes (or your most delicious takeout!).

Its renovation in 2006 brought the home up today’s standards while still keeping that classic Mid Century Modern feel. 72 Treasure Lane is filled with dark wood accents that give it an edge of sophistication and the gourmet kitchen is ready for your fanciest dinner party.
