Originally designed by late architect and Illinois School of Architecture professor Jack Sherman Baker in 1968, the four-bedroom home features double-height glazing, three fireplaces, and multiple outdoor spaces.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home at 1111 Williams Boulevard in Springfield, Illinois, was designed by late architect and Illinois School of Architecture professor Jack Sherman Baker in 1968. Overlooking the city’s 150-acre Washington Park—with direct access to its walking trails and botanical gardens—the compound-like dwelling received an 1,800-square-foot addition designed by local architect Chuck Pell in 2007, which was built to complement the original structure.
Inside the 4,314-square-foot home, which is currently listed for $739,900, tall windows and skylights usher in ample light and abundant views of the surrounding greenery. On the ground level, a spacious chef’s kitchen features custom cabinetry, Italian terrazzo floors, a large central island with quartz countertops. Dramatic, double-story glass panels connect the space to a rear patio.
