Located just 35 minutes away from Lake Shore Drive, this exceptional forest retreat is nestled on Mill Creek, at the bottom of a deep ravine, surrounded by a hardwood forest canopy. The panoramic expanses of glass throughout the home bring you into a forest shared with over 150 documented species of birds, two deer paths, a fox den, and two resident 8-point bucks. Recently featured in Crain’s October 12th, this property is the perfect corporate retreat.
The extraordinary custom-designed Mid-Century Modern home features multiple picture windows overlooking the woods and ravine, filling the home with natural light. The design of this home is truly unique, consisting of six intersecting trapezoids on six different levels and built of boulders, heavy timber, and brick. The spacious deck overlooking professional landscaping and the creek is perfect for sophisticated entertaining or a peaceful retreat.
The home has been recently updated with new lighting and interior painting throughout, oak hardwood floors in the main rooms, and new luxury carpeting in three bedrooms and an office. The original built-in cabinets in the dining room are book-matched, and the fabulous cathedral ceiling wood-beamed great room is sure to take your breath away.
If you are looking for an architectural treasure among other fine residences, this one-of-a-kind home is a must-see. Discover the tranquility and privacy of this forest retreat and make it your own.
