BEST IN MIDWEST REGION
This home represents a modern version of a 1920s shingle-style home. The composite slate roof, cement fiberboard shake siding and color clad windows make the exterior stand out.
The interior has a hand-crafted mahogany railed grand staircase, paneled walls and Brazilian cherry floors. A hideaway bookcase passage leads to the secret reading retreat. The kitchen features wide-beamed ceilings, hand-hewn Brazilian cherry flooring, hand-glazed tile and a large center island.
