Built in the 1920s, this French Normandy style estate is the epitome of country style on Chicago’s North Shore. Mariani worked with the owners of the coach house to reestablish the feel of a country estate. Incorporated into the new layout were an outdoor swimming pool, kitchen, dining area, perogola, and fireplace. Care was taken to marry outdoor materials with the home’s exterior. Stone was imported to match the home’s medieval look and hand-chiseled for an old world feel.
