Located in the rolling hills of north western Illinois, this single family residence serves as a summer home as well as a weekend getaway for the family. The Galena residence was built on 10 acres of wooded land deep into the site and is accessed by a winding road. It is a two story home designed for entertaining large family gatherings and yet is still cozy for the immediate family. The great room features a two story vaulted ceiling with exposed scissor trusses clad with naturally finished cherry wood. The back opens to the spectacular view of a grand back yard completely surround by 100 year old trees that give the home all the privacy it needs.
