Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Olympia Fields, Illinois

By RetroRuth

Everyone take a couple of deep breaths before you look at this week’s house! I don’t want anyone fainting on me from the fabulous.


This crazy-awesome house is located at 2701 Country Club Drive in Olympia Fields, Illinois. It is 8 bedrooms (!) and 4 bathrooms and is approximately 5,300 square feet. It was built in 1953 and the asking price is $450,000. It is listed by Baird & Warner and you can see the listing on Zillow here. From the listing:

Stunning Mid-Century Modern architectural dream house in excellent condition. One owner, custom built in 1953, at the entrance to Olympia Fields Country Club. Huge open floor plan with open kitchen and dining, enclosed sun porches, skylights, double-sided fireplace, gorgeous wood, stone and brick. Gorgeous woodland gardens. Great livable floor plan. Well maintained and has a brand new roof. Excellent kitchen with updated appliances and Sub-zero. Includes two lots with a paved basketball court, three outbuildings (one can be a 3+ car garage and two for storage or could easily be updated to be an artist studio or guest cottage). Main level of the house includes an en-suite for related living with it’s own entrance, multiple rooms, kitchen, bath and adjacent laundry, all with no stairs). Home backs up to the 16th hole of Olympia Fields Golf Course!! Opportunity like this rarely knocks. Are you answering?

Let me tell you something, this house is pretty much what my dreams are made of. If this was anywhere near me, I wouldn’t be able to get my checkbook out fast enough! There are so many absolutely gorgeous rooms in this place. I am in love with the main kitchen, the porches, the flooring and pretty much all of the woodwork. What is your favorite part?

    Wow! Just wow! Interior woods are beautiful, and the terrazzo floors are amazing. Talk about bringing the outdoors in: stunning.

    Your warning was so necessary, dear RetroRuth! I adore the terrazzo and slate floors. If only I could relocate to Illinois!

    For that many bedrooms, that close to Chicago, for that price? Holy, moly. Too bad, kids! Mama’s moving to Chicago! (Which I wouldn’t mind at all. Only 4 more years ’til the youngest is out of the house!)
