Originally designed by Chicago designer Richard Himmel as his country retreat. The exterior is reminiscent of a Beaux Arts European Country Estate.

The villa was Himmels experiment to test the works from different eras to showcase how they complement and reinforce each other's message. Spectacular great room for grand scale entertaining. Dramatic family room. Distinctive master suite. A true chef's kitchen way ahead of its time in design and function. Set on amazing grounds surrounded by majestic botanical trees and perennials, Japanese gardens and koi pond, including pool and tennis court. A rare opportunity to restore the residence to today's standard while also keeping the designers vision in place.
