    Description

    Modern farmhouse with an edge, just one block from downtown Lake Bluff! Built in 1994 and mindfully remodeled under the vision of revered late Chicago architect Jerry Horn, this home represents an extraordinary blend of classic and modern. The Colonial white clapboard exterior and charming wrap-around porch give the home a lasting presence, as if it has been in the neighborhood for decades. The interiors tell a different story. The floorplan was completely opened to allow effortless flow from room to room and facilitate the needs of contemporary families. Soaring 10-foot ceilings, combined with abundant windows and multiple sets of doors leading to the outdoor porch give the main living level a wonderful sense of volume and space. The formal living and dining room flow to the family room and kitchen area, where it's easy to imagine entertaining. The sleek yet functional Bulthaup kitchen featured in House Beautiful with large center island is a timeless tribute to modern design. Meanwhile, the family room has been intelligently designed to provide maximum comfort and efficiency with seamless custom built-ins for extra storage. A wall of windows and an oversized slider lead to the back deck, where you'll find an outdoor entertaining space with a stone fireplace designed and built by Horvat. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two full baths, including a primary suite that doubles as a retreat with vaulted ceilings, fireplace and spa-like bath with steam shower. This home is teeming with extras too, like the multi-purpose studio that extends from the two-car garage, which can serve as an art studio, homework space, home office or gym. A finished basement with rec space creates yet another opportunity for play. Every detail has been carefully considered in this home. There's simply nothing else like it in Lake Bluff.
