Modern interpretation of a traditional Tudor style house on Lake Michigan

Morgante Wilson Architects recently completed the design of this gorgeous modern lake house located in Wilmette, a village in New Trier Township, Cook County, Illinois. This home offers “a clean-lined interpretation of traditional Tudor style on the front exterior that blends beautifully into its North Shore neighborhood,” the architects explained.” The house reveals an almost entirely glass-lined, contemporary rear elevation to take maximum advantage of its waterside location.”

What We Love: This striking modern home on Lake Michigan offers a bright and spacious floor plan layout. Soaring walls of glass frames views of the breathtaking lakefront setting that this idyllic home offers. With functional storage solutions and clever design features, the design of this home has been well thought out. The master bathroom is a spa-oasis, we are especially loving the large double vanities and heavenly freestanding tub with lake views!… Readers, what details caught your eye in this home tour?
