Our home is a unique, private, custom retreat only 18 miles west of downtown Chicago with easy access to both airports. Built in 2008, this Architect/owner designed modern, true heavy timber-frame structure with separate guesthouse incorporates a contemporary loft-like character with the warmth of real wood structure with finishes in Douglas Fir, White Oak and Cherry . An open floor plan, with strategically designed site lines incorporates 10 foot ceilings on the first floor with a bridge and Great Room vaulted ceiling soaring to 20+ feet tall. Abundant natural daylight along with custom designed lighting at night highlights structural elements, rift and quarter-sawn white oak flooring, soapstone countertops and cherry custom cabinets. This very private, quiet location on 1.25 acres overlooks the La Grange Country Club golf course. This house includes a main residence and luxury separate one bedroom guest house; and a full, unfinished basement combined for a total of over 9000 square feet. The detached Guest House includes a separate 2 car garage with one bedroom and one bath apartment above with full kitchen, living/dining space, two workspaces and its own laundry. Windows are douglas fir casements with transoms above, providing views of nature and allowing natural light from every direction. The main residence features an oversized kitchen with large island and circular bar seating opening onto the Great Room with floor to ceiling stone wood burning fireplace with natural slate details. The custom design includes influences of contemporary rustic, industrial details giving this home a mountain retreat feeling of calm and relaxation. From the large entry foyer, views through the house and up to the structure and second story bridge draw visitors inside. A floating steel stair with dark birch wood treads and steel contemporary railing draws the eye up to the timber frame structure with cypress ceiling decking and cherry details. This home also includes a separate dining room, breakfast/sun room, two private home offices, 5 bedrooms (two with loft spaces), 5 bathrooms, 2 laundry rooms, a walk-in pantry, and centrally located modern butler's pantry/bar area and huge front and rear yards making this a perfect home for living, entertaining and outdoor fun. Relax in the first-floor Master Suite sanctuary, with two walk in closets, two separate sink/vanities, luxurious spa bath and double shower. Not one but two dedicated home offices and 2 lofted homework rooms overlooking kids bedrooms. Radiant floors and Geothermal throughout! This very private, quiet location on 1.25 acres overlooks the La Grange Country Club golf course, in a residential neighborhood, just 2 miles from the vibrant, small town atmosphere in both downtown La Grange and Western Springs. The mature tree-lined property includes multi-level paver patio, wood pergola and deck, covered front porch with heavy timber structure and stone columns and a 200 ft. long circle drive for 10+ cars, a trailer, truck as needed.
