Beautifully proportioned rooms, with exquisite detailing and craftsmanship are awe-inspiring. Everything denotes quality, from the exemplary 1920's workmanship, to the modern influences incorporated to achieve a functionality for today's active families. In 2005, Chicago architect and designer Darcy Bonner, was hired to elevate the home another level, starting with a professional grade kitchen, complete with custom wood cabinetry, top-end appliances and multiple work stations for prep and baking as well as a family breakfast room and private courtyard patio. In step with the family's long tradition of entertaining, a terrific family great room was added off the kitchen area.
