Northbrook Country Estate

Ranch Home Makeover

This Northbrook home, built in the 60s, had survived a number of renovations and additions throughout the 70s and 80s. But the time had come to do it right with a complete ranch home makeover for a sprawling Tudor.

This home renovation was both complete and dramatic – inside and out. We were able to breathe new life into the 40+-year-old structure by:

  • Removing the tired brick exterior and wrapped the home in a lighter, warmer exterior of Lannon stone and cedar shake siding
  • Gutting the entire interior
  • Replacing existing plumbing, HVAC, and electrical systems
  • Moving a number of walls to optimize space and flow
  • Adding six bathrooms
  • Installing a new kitchen
  • Adding new windows and doors
  • Creating a home theater
  • Building a brand new pool house
  • Constructing an attached three-car garage

The ranch home makeover project was a considerably large transformation. We were mindful to infuse the craftsmanship with custom, thoughtful details throughout. Because when it’s all said and done, it’s the little things that truly elevate a space.

From the Homeowner

"We cannot say enough about the wonderful experience of working with Scott Simpson Design + Build. Now that we are building again we didn’t even let anyone else bid on the project. They are really that good. Besides the quality of the work, they are super easy to deal with, always on top of things and always answer the phone."
