This boxy Midcentury in Highland Park has come a long way since its days as a rundown duplex. Renovated by HabHouse, organic materials pair with high-end finishes for a clean, contemporary aesthetic. Among bright ideas is a modernized kitchen with zebrawood cabinetry and a breakfast bar. In the master suite, a sliding barn door opens to reveal a center soaking tub set adjacent to a stone-lined fireplace.
