Originally owned by the Sears family, three Sears Catalogue
made-to-order summer cottages were built upon this picturesque plot in
Lake Bluff, Illinois in the 1920's. For many years they were
maintained as a family retreat. In the 1970's, new owners joined the
cottages into a single family home with a Post Modern, synthetic
stucco facade and little to no detailing.
When the current owners purchased this home, they came to GPD to redesign it into an English country
mansion, befitting the North Shore and their fairy tale vision.
This home is the winner of
the Renaissance Award from the National Association of Home Builders'
Council and REMODELING Magazine.
