Business in Front, Party in the Back

Sometimes, when you’ve looked at thousands of homes you start to take it for granted that you can look at the front of the house, the neighborhood, and guess the floorplan pretty easily. And so here we have a home built by the Deane Brothers in Lake Forest. Took a look at the front — just a standard late 60s / early 70s single-story ranch house. Blah blah blah.

But then you go inside…and it isn’t. What you were expecting was low ceilings and a sliding glass door leading to the backyard. Instead, you get a lot more glass than you ever thought and soaring ceilings. What I love about these homes is that the bones — the basics — are super solid. And these homes take so well to the kind of MODernization that is becoming popular. On the front ditch the tacked on shutters and trim and go with bold patterns, colors, and plants. BOOM — what was once a sleepy tracty ranch turns into stylish machine for living.

Ditch the front door and the sunroom (it’s a bit awkward). Anyhow, this home is priced — very reasonably. Less than $650k for a larger than average 1344 square feet (the enclosed patio room is NOT included in that).

Step off the sidelines and give us a call to see this one.
