Get ready to snuggle up when you tour this charming country estate by Great Rooms Building Group. Although the home is expansive, it feels warm and cozy inside due to the use of wood and stone finishes. Much to my surprise, I found out this picturesque retreat is located not too far from where I live on the outskirts of the Chicago suburbs. The community enjoys all the conveniences of town, but has a lot of green space too.
Step inside and you’re greeted by a stunning, open staircase in the center of the home. The dining room is spotted in the background and you’ll notice the abundance of windows throughout.
From this vantage point you can appreciate the detail of the stone wall while getting a glimpse of the family room at the end of the hallway.
A stone center fireplace leads up to the vaulted, rustic wood ceiling. Blue velvet accent chairs lend a nice pop of color while the large cow overlooks the activity in the room. Rustic cabinets flanking the fireplace provide storage for blankets, board games, and more.
Doesn’t this look like the perfect dining room for Thanksgiving dinner? You get to enjoy a beautiful view of the outdoors while gathered around the table. Black Windsor chairs are a timeless classic and the upholstered end chairs lend a touch of softness. Top it all off with a big rooster as the centerpiece and you’re all set. Not to mention – the gorgeous hardwood floors!
The kitchen is just as beautiful as the rest of the house with a gorgeous shade of green cabinets, rustic wood ceiling beams, and a stone enclosure surrounding the range. Textured brick floors pair beautifully with the wooden kitchen island and the green cabinets.
Like the dining and family rooms, the kitchen features a wall of windows to enjoy the outdoor countryside. I like that a black refrigerator and dishwasher were chosen as opposed to stainless steel. It matches the countertops.
I chuckled when I spied the stacked farm animals in the corner next to the stove. I used to have one of those and blogged about decorating with farmhouse animals. It’s well-suited for this charming country estate kitchen.
Just off the kitchen is the cozy breakfast nook. Note the whimsical touches like an iron rooster on the brick floor and the pretty pear artwork. Have you fallen in love yet with this charming country estate?
Off the breakfast nook is a charming little mudroom which leads outside.
A pair of live edge shelves create a unique bathroom vanity in the powder room. A patterned wall tile adds interest, along with the twig-style towel holder.
The bedroom is simply decorated, allowing the gorgeous comforter to take center stage.
Another gorgeous wood vanity makes its appearance in the master bathroom. A unique, double sink sits on top.
Back outside, you can enjoy the unique architecture of today’s charming country estate. How clever is that rustic pump with a wooden log bowl to catch the water?
The family enjoys an outdoor kitchen on their country property. I think I need to meet these people and get invited to a party. The home and its surroundings are simply beautiful. The little red pig is a sweet touch. I wonder what he’s looking at.
He’s enjoying a view of the pool!
