Natural Beauty

Situated atop a dune across from Lake Michigan, the International-style Horner House offers amazing natural views from its stylish Modernist surrounds, a true haven for those looking to get away from it all.

Swiss architect Otto Kolb designed the vacation home for Hungarian emigrants Imre and Maria Horner in 1949, cantilevering the house’s living room over a ravine and employing walls of glass and natural materials in an open layout that maximizes surrounding views of lake in the front and mature trees in the back. Today, the house remains one of the renowned architect’s few American commissions.

The National Register-listed home consists of 3 buildings: the 3-bedroom main house; a 2-story guesthouse with 1 bed, 1 bath and its own kitchen; and the 1-car garage. Enjoy the convenience of being just 55 miles from downtown Chicago, with Beverly Shores’ own train stop access via the South Shore Line.

The Horner House will be sold with preservation covenants to ensure its long-term preservation. For more details and to request a showing, visit the realtor’s website.
