From elegant and stately mansions to modern, environmentally friendly abodes, The North Shore is chock-full of one-of-a-kind homes.
Each week, Patch will feature one ‘Wow House’ that caught our attention. This week, a 5,600 square-foot Northbrook estate steals our hearts.
Set on two acres down a private lane, the $2.9 million showstopper invokes New England with its cedar shake shingles, peaked rooflines, gables and expansive porches. Completed by builder in 2005, 23 Bridlewood Road won a Crystal Key Award from the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago for its architectural design.
Inside this mansion, French doors lead through the foyer to an enormous family room containing one of three stone fireplace and walls of windows affording views of the lushly landscaped grounds. Upstairs, each of the six bedrooms has a private bath, and five come with walk-in closets. The master bedroom has a marble bath, whirlpool and a private terrace.
Other amenities include a heated three-car garage, whole house stereo system and even a bocce court. Not to mention the professionally landscaped grounds with flowering trees, perennial gardens and mature hickories and oaks.
