An Incredible, Completely Re-Done Sprawling Modern Ranch in Deerfield

1463 Northwoods Road, Deerfield

Absolutely spectacular! This spacious mid-century modern ranch home has been completely transformed over the past few years. Set on over 3/4 of an acre peppered with beautiful, mature trees on a quiet cul-de-sac just a minute from downtown Deerfield, this amazing property boasts an incredible array of amenities, and on a scale that’s rarely available for a late ’50s modern home. Long, low and sprawling in classic midwest modern architectural fashion, you’ll enter into a welcoming foyer replete with redwood walls, plank and beam ceilings, brick floors and vast windows looking into a tranquil courtyard. Continue down the gallery-style hallway and behold the beauty of the spacious, open living areas. A fireplace with original brick hearth on the Living Room wall catches your eye before leading you out to the expansive sunken Great Room, with its walls of glass, vaulted ceilings, skylights, sunken bar and brick floors with radiant heat. A second fireplace in the Great Room will keep you cozy, and as you take in the space, you’ll notice the limestone hearth relates to the bar detailing across the room. As you look out the many windows in the great room, you’ll notice how nature surrounds the home, with beautiful and healthy mature trees dotting the landscape. Head back up the brick steps and into your fantastic kitchen. Perfect for meal prep, entertaining, or intimate family gatherings, the kitchen features a waterfall style quartz island over custom rift oak cabinetry and high end appliances by Wolf, Viking and Asko – all looking out over the wrap-around tiered deck and the beautiful landscaping beyond. Head into the screened porch for some al fresco relaxation, or around the corner to the walk-in pantry. It’s in this corridor that you’ll get your first glimpse of the Courtyard Pool, perfect for a refreshing dip on hot days, or swimming any time of year, thanks to the pool heater and swimming tether. Continue down the hall to the spacious laundry room, complete with utility sink and built-in cabinetry, and make your way to the bedroom hall. Around the corner you’ll find an exceptional bathroom serving the 3rd and 4th bedrooms, with a wet-room style soaking tub and open shower under a skylight that floods the room with natural light. Back down the hall, the 2nd bedroom features its own en suite bath with beautiful cabinetry and a walk-in shower. And finally, through a set of double doors, you discover the owner’s Primary Suite. Featuring vaulted plank and beam ceilings, clerestory windows, redwood feature walls and views into a terraced courtyard as well as across the gorgeous landscaping behind the home. The Primary en suite bathroom features dual walk-in closets, heated floors, double sinks under a generous skylight, free-standing soaking tub, large walk-in shower and a private water closet. Downstairs is a large playroom and the home’s 4th full bath, plus a Bonus / Exercise room and a storage closet. This lower level features clerestory windows into a courtyard and could easily be used as a guest suite. Additional storage on the main level, as well as in the 3-car garage that includes two Tesla charging points. Beautifully-lit at night throughout the grounds, you’ll also enjoy a secluded fire pit with hammock, playground set, and there’s even a dog run hidden on one side of the home. All of this is close to shopping, restaurants, Metra, highway access and served by the highly-desirable Walden elementary and always-in-demand Deerfield High School. Loaded with beautiful materials and architectural details, this stunning home represents a rare opportunity to live a modern lifestyle with plenty of space – all on one level – and natural beauty in one of the state’s top school districts, with nothing to do but move in and bring your things. Way too many updates to list here, but a complete guide is available upon asking. Owned solar is in-process of being installed for the benefit of the environment and, of course, for you.
