Midcentury modern, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired house on Racine tour

Jen Hinkle describes her Racine home in a variety of ways.

She calls it midcentury modern, a home on three levels, and one that’s done in a post and beam construction.

She also calls it “the perfect Nerf house,” because of its open concept design.

“Our 12-year-old son, and our daughter when she was young, would hold Nerf battles from each level of the house. They can shoot from the upstairs into the downstairs because everything is all open,” she said.

Hinkle, who bought the house with her husband, Ken, said it’s also a home with some interesting history.

Located in the Racine County village of Elmwood Park, it was built by Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired architect Hans Geyer, and its kitchen was once used in a Johnson Wax trade advertisement.
