Estate-size Northbrook rich in amenities
Shingles and stones blend harmoniously to give the estate-size Northbrook the look of a rustic lodge. Eye-catching Craftsman touches are seen in the window styling, the gable supports and posts, and in the tapered stone-veneer bases supporting those posts.
This plan is designed for a lot that slopes down on the right side, allowing for a daylight basement below.
Inside, the ambiance is far from rustic. Entering via the vaulted porch, you step into a wide foyer. An opening on the left leads into a spacious great room with a stepped ceiling and a wide fireplace. Windows fill most of the rear wall, and more light washes in through multipaned windows above the built-in cabinets flanking the fireplace.
A cased opening leads into the dining room, which is fully open to the kitchen. Sliding glass doors access a partially covered patio.
Counters, cabinets and appliances rim the kitchen's perimeter, while a work island with a flush, gently curved conversation bar anchors the space. Notable kitchen features include a six-burner range, a large sink with a patio view, a prep sink and a beverage bar with an ice machine.
From the luxurious vaulted owners' suite, double doors open onto a covered deck. Bathroom amenities include a spa or soaking tub, oversized shower, private toilet, and two basins. An exceptionally deep walk-in closet is next to the bathroom.
Stairs to the Northbrook's daylight basement are to the right of the foyer. A comfortable family room is below, plus three more bedrooms, two bathrooms and a covered patio.
A mini-bathroom is also to the right of the stairs, along with a roomy pantry, and a mudroom/utility room with garage access. A study or sewing cubicle nestles into a wall niche there.
