The Glenview home Helen Brach last lived in before her mysterious disappearance is now being sold for 1.825 million. The original part of the house, located at 830 Eastwood Lane, was built in 1940 and still remains a landmark to Chicago residents.
Brach, known for marrying into the E. J. Brach & Sons Candy Company, was last seen on February 17, 1977 attending an appointment at the Mayo Clinic. Although she was eventually declared dead, her body has not been found and no one has been convicted in her disappearance.
Tom Harris, the seller of this house, said living in Brach’s home was very interesting. Within the first 10 years, Harris had many private investigators visit to look for evidence.
The five-bedroom, four-bathroom house, which has appeared on “Inside Edition,” still has original remaining elements installed by Brach herself that could be clues to her story. Harris says Brach’s presumed paranoia, while she lived alone in the house, is evident as the house still has locks on every door, an escape tunnel and an alarm.
According to the listing, the home features a gym on the main floor and Herringbone hardwood floors. The backyard boasts a large swimming pool with a pool house and pergola.
The home is being sold by listing agent Melissa Siegal at @ Properties.
