Astounding modern farmhouse inspired dream home in the Chicago suburbs

modern-farmhouse-exterior

This modern farmhouse was designed as a dream home for a pair of empty-nesters by G.O. Architectural Design, nestled on a two-and-a-half-acre property in Wheaton, a distinctive community just west of Chicago, Illinois. The exterior facade is clad with white vertical board and batten siding, Wisconsin limestone, black metal windows, and an aluminum standing seam metal roof.

The couple has five grown children and instead of downsizing for their new home, they instead opted to construct a large house to encourage their kids to come for a visit. This spacious dwelling wraps around a terraced poolside patio surrounded by a quiet rural setting. Continue below to see the inside of this stunning home…

What We Love: This modern farmhouse dream home built for empty nesters offers an attractive exterior facade that is super welcoming. The back of this facade is equally exquisite with the wrap-around terrace patio, inviting lounging spaces, and a fantastic swimming pool for the owners and their guests. Overall, we are loving the design of this home, from the gorgeous chef’s kitchen to the soaring ceilings in the light-filled great room.
