This French Country style home, built by SMART Builders, Inc. and designed by Tinaglia Architects, is located on a .5 acre lot in the Chicago Northwest Suburban area of Arlington Heights. The exterior displays elegant curb appeal with the steeply pitched hipped roofs, an asymmetrical footprint, and a rustic stone and stucco facade. Beautiful multi-paned windows by Kolbe & Kolbe, are trimmed in limestone adding artful detail, especially to the arch-topped windows and sills.
The hipped roofs, expertly installed by SMART Roofing, Inc., feature CertainTeed Grand Manor shingles. This luxurious multi-layered shingle replicates the depth and dimension of slate with the assurance of a lifetime warranty. Also, of note are the outdoor spaces designed by John Fitzgerald (JKF Landscape) and installed by Rooney Landscape, featuring native grasses and perennials, and an integrated firepit with seating wall. If you’d rather stay inside, the 3-season screened room also has a fireplace!
As they were designing their forever home, these homeowners incorporated an “aging in place” plan with a bedroom and en-suite bathroom on the first floor. In the meantime, this space provides a welcoming guest or in-law suite! The 6,000 square foot home has 9- and 10-foot ceilings, 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2nd-floor laundry room, and a finished basement with home office, family room, gaming area, exercise room, finished storage, a full bath, and a kitchenette.
The design-build team at SMART Builders, Inc. collaborated on the interior finishes of this luxury custom-built home in Arlington Heights with Mollee Johnson of Style 1519 and Surface Group International of Barrington. Custom Wood-Mode Cabinets, Miele, and Sub-Zero appliances were designed and installed by Abruzzo Kitchens and Bath.

Stamped concrete can be a great alternative to using other materials to achieve a sophisticated look. Commonly used for patios, sidewalks, and driveways, stamped concrete can look like brick, cobblestone, or slate.
