For the people who read this Substack, you might not know I’ve freelanced for Chicago magazine for the last year and a half writing up real estate blurbs. This past week while scrolling Zillow or whatever search engine for what seems like the millionth time, I came across a listing in Barrington Hills that I somehow missed, even though it’s been on and off the market for the last five years. Of course I fell down a rabbit hole as I tend to do just about every single time I research a building.
Fascinating story. I wonder if Luigi is related (by marriage) to the famed architecture critic Lewis Mumford?
