Greenacres Ln., Glenview Custom Home by SMART Builders

SMART Builders, Inc. has collaborated with David A. Schultz Architects to design this Hamptons Style home on a quiet, private lane in Glenview, Illinois.  When you say, “the Hamptons”, you image a relaxed lifestyle.  In this home design, you will find a casual and relaxed style done in a very sophisticated way.  The open rooms are bright and breezy, with natural light pouring in, along with a color palette of beachy tones and natural textures.

The exterior of this Glenview custom home features a Western Red Cedar Tapersawn Shake roof and Shakertown Craftsman Cedar Shingle siding installed by SMART Roofing, Inc.   Tapersawn Shakes are sawn on both sides giving it a look similar to a sawn shingle, but with a thicker appearance.  Tapersawn Shakes are known for their smooth uniform look compared to the rustic look of hand-split shakes.  The cedar shingle siding, stacked stone, and white painted Marvin windows, columns and trim are highlighted by the beautiful landscape design by Pamela Self Landscape Architecture.  Copper accents, gutters, and downspouts from Chicago Metal Supply complete this classic Hamptons exterior style.

Custom Brookhaven by Wood-Mode cabinetry and appliances by Sub-Zero, WolfBosch, and Miele were designed and installed by Abruzzo Kitchen and Bath.  The stunning hardwood floors throughout this custom-built home are done in a wide plank, rift and quarter-sawn, white oak, stained in a rich kona finish.  A wood countertop, fabricated by Grothouse, on the expansive kitchen island coordinates with the hardwood floor finish.  Moving through the butler’s pantry, you’ll find the formal dining room surrounded in custom panel molding, oversized crown and base trim details painted white to contrast with the navy blue wall covering and decor accents.

Other features of this 6,400 sf home include a great room with fireplace on the lower level, spectacular views of the outdoor spaces from the 4-season room and great room, and a unique “home base” area with entries for each garage.  This area includes storage, separate built-in mudroom coat lockers, a sink area, and a built-in desk/hutch area – with access to the rear staircases to the second floor and to the basement.  Everything for that relaxed lifestyle, and more!

Glenview Custom Home – Pergola In Progress

per·go·la – “A pergola is an outdoor structure consisting of a roofing grid of beams and rafters. This roofing grid may be left open or covered so as to create an area sheltered from the elements. Pergolas may be freestanding or attached to a house.”

On this beautiful fall day, our homeowners are dreaming of enjoying their time relaxing under the pergola when their Glenview custom home is completed.  This Glenview custom home also features a Western Red Cedar Tapersawn Shake roof and Shakertown Craftsman Cedar Shingle siding.
