A glowing (at least at dusk) example of Prairie School–style architecture by self-taught designer Richard S. Condon hugs the horizontal and hovers above the flatlands of Tanglewood. Its second level is almost entirely capped by casement windows. Condon passed away in January 2012. The residence on Doliver Dr. he built for himself in 1999 appeared on the market in March of this year, and has kept its asking price at a flat $3,260,000.
In the listing, several rooms (such as the living room, below) appear with furnishings . . .
and without (below). Meanwhile, the front-of-house windows stack up on 2 levels:
The dining room also appears in a staged mode . . .
and a stripped-down one:
Either way, the glassed-in corner — shared with the wet-bar off the kitchen — has a view into the back yard:
Lighting in the coffered ceilings throughout the home further accents overhead detailing — and adds just a tad more wattage to whatever flood of sunshine pours through the home’s glass-panel doors and floor-to-ceiling windows:
The floor plan appears to be L-shaped. A portion of the first level has the master suite . . .
fitted with a walk-in shower and step-down tub:
Upstairs, casement windows ring a sitting area:
Nearby, there’s a game room with a bit of built-in seating and yet another fireplace:
The 6,787-sq.-ft home comes with 4 secondary bedrooms, located upstairs. Among them:
One of the bedrooms comes with its own kitchenette . . .
with an adjacent nook for a dinette:
Beneath the exterior’s eaves and overhang, a walkway-width patio hugs the back of the home:
Otherwise, the half-acre lot provides lawn interrupted only by landscaping:
One flank of the home includes a 3-car garage.
