Before & After: c.1922 David Adler Masterpiece Transformed in Complete Renovation
111 Moffett Road, Lake Bluff, Illinois, United States, 60044
A large country manor designed by architect David Adler has come back on the market for $4,850,000 after a total home renovation. On the market for as much as $5,995,000 between 2013 – 2016, the historic home, patterned after La Lanterne in Versailles, sold in late-2016 for $3,200,000. It previously sold in a foreclosure auction in 1998 for $2,400,000. Spanning a little over 7,200 square feet, the home sits on a large 6 acre property with gardens, ravines and wide open spaces steps from Lake Michigan. Since selling in 2016, the home has been completely transformed, with the listing touting, “The neutral color palette enhances the architecture and moldings, highlighting the true elegance of the home.” A statement that could be debated. We’ve included several before photos below to compare with current listing photos, and a few more found here on Curbed Chicago. There are 5 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, panelled pine walls imported from France, an antique mural in the living room and views of the gardens and ravine from just about every room. Scroll down and take a look at the before and after photos and let us know which you prefer. The home is currently on the market for $4,850,000 with Griffith, Grant & Lackie.
