Not only was I intrigued by this home because it is in north suburban Chicago, my own hood, but also because my intern Colette lives in a renovated and expanded coach house that was originally part of the estate that provided the inspiration for this home, the Carol Morse Ely home designed by acclaimed architect David Adler. I knew this house in Met Home looked familiar! The original Carol Morse Ely home, built in the 1914, is only a a few steps away from Colette’s house. Well done to architect Gregory Maire for capturing the essence of the breathtaking original home! Design/build trends come and go, but nearly 100 years later, this classic French design proves to be timeless. However, the eclectic interiors give it a modern twist which is oh so ooh-la-la!
