Arbor mediterranean-exterior


A 1920s’ estate on the shores of Lake Michigan underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and was transformed into an Italian villa worthy of the shores of Lake Como. Structural modifications allowed floors and ceilings to be raised, and plan modifications were made to provide vistas with views from room to room and improve the circulation.

Modern conveniences were also added to the house, including an underground garage that houses up to six cars, an elevator, his and her home offices, and a home theater with full bar.

Thank you for your interest in our project. The millworker missed the piece and it was caught and corrected after the image was taken.
