In case you missed out on last month’s 2021 Parade of Homes tour, Simply Local Magazine is proud to bring you the next best thing, a tour through the pages. Welcome to the 2021 Ban Construction Parade Home.
Ban Construction, The Nines Subdivision, 1337 Fisher Island Place
This striking Ban Construction home, located at 1337 Fisher Island Place in The Nines Subdivision, features an angular footprint and sloping roof lines adding a new twist to Prairie Modern. The unique slab pavers set in crushed granite draw you into the recessed front entry. There you are met with lovely black stone walls beneath a cedar inset that looks as if it is rusted metal. You begin to get a sense of what you are about to experience.
Cozy and Contemporary
The Bans have a keen eye toward combining a cozy surrounding with contemporary design. The gray washed Alder trim is accentuated by the light gray walls.
The first room to the right at the front of the home is an office with convenient built-ins for multiple uses. Just up the hallway is a bedroom or exercise room.
The kitchen and great room look out toward the backyard. The white upper cabinets are washed in gray and embellished with gunmetal handles. The lower island cabinets are a striking graphite color. The refrigerator is angle-set for continuity with the home’s floor plan. Two pantries are down the hall between the garage/mudroom and the great room.
A floor-to-ceiling fireplace provides a fabulous focal point to the room with its light, dry-set stone beneath a high vaulted ceiling. Of course there is a dry bar for entertaining!
A lot of thought and design prowess went into this home’s bathrooms. Each of them has a unique feature wall in the tile bathtub surrounds. One has a brilliant display of black, gray and silver tiles in a chevron configuration. The chevron accent is repeated in the Grand Bath. A bathroom on the second level has a tweed-like tile with a feature wall that resembles a crazy quilt. These bathrooms are all worthy of a closer look.
The cabinets in this home have unique finishes. It is easiest to see in the laundry room. The cabinets resemble fine linen in an oatmeal color. They are accented with dark handles and a wall of black subway tiles.
In addition to an attached 3-car garage, there is a separate large garage that could serve as a shop or be great storage for an RV.
