plus a visit to Barrington

Watch for more great events to come!

Hosted by CBB board member and realtor Lou Zucaro, this event takes us to Plum Grove Estates, a mid-century neighborhood in Palatine. We suggest you leave home a bit early and take your own driving tour around the neighborhood to see a wide variety of fascinating, mid-century homes of which we are just scratching the surface to learn more. Plan to arrive at our first stop at 2:00, where we will visit he original home of Ron Petralito, mid-century architect, who is making a special visit to lead a discussion on the home's original design and how it could be preserved. The home, now derelict and in need of preservation, is a sprawling 3-bed, 3-bath contemporary ranch featuring open floor plan, 11 ft ceilings, spacious bedrooms, atrium, separate in-law suite concept and much more. How could such a fabulous home fall into such disrepair, and how could it be saved?

At 3:00, we will drive approx. 20 minutes to our second stop will be at Lou's impressive new listing in Barrington. A one of a kind curved concrete and brick home, designed in 1967, creates a striking 180 degree arc and punctuated by cylindrical striated concrete towers on a 4 acre lot with pond and tennise court. A sumptuous interior features many custom touches and is not to be missed. Event will end at approximately 4:30.
