Natural elements are the centerpiece of this new construction’s thoughtful design and unique details.
Set on a standard lot in Northbrook, IL lot, this 4-bedroom house makes the most out of its 2,900 square feet by working with beautiful, natural materials.
Thoughtful details include high windows that allow for both natural light and privacy, 9-foot ceilings in the basement, and a reclaimed wood beam arch separating the family room from the kitchen. The house’s exterior is noteworthy as well, with copper gutters, wide-planked white siding, and a welcoming front porch.
But the true star is in the backyard.
Rain Garden Addition
We were able to make this house very special (and very green) by adding the first village-approved rain garden in Northbrook. Rain gardens use vegetation, soils, and other elements to restore some of the natural processes required to manage water and create a healthier environment. We installed a 5,000-gallon sub-ground retention system to diminish a load of a large rain event on the property and the Northbrook municipal system while retaining water for the homeowner that can then be used for irrigation on the property.
