7870 Tecumseh Tr., Indian Hill

You might not realize it at first glance, but this modern farmhouse in Indian hill was actually built in 1955, at the height of the Cape Cod Revival movement. It took more than two years for developers to strip the home, located on three-and-a-half wooded acres at the end of a shady cul-de-sac, down to the studs and transform it into a picture-perfect family home.

An airy two-story entryway welcomes you, but it’s the back wall of the main living space that steals the show with massive floor-to-ceiling windows looking straight into the backyard. The open-concept living and dining room features a stunning paneled statement wall and an extra-convenient dry bar with not just one, but two beverage fridges.

Whether you’re throwing a dinner party or just cooking for the family, the kitchen is an entertainer’s paradise with custom inset cabinetry, a 10-foot island with ample room for seating, Thermador appliances, and dual dishwashers that’ll make cleanup a breeze.

Soaring ceilings, painted a crisp white to match the walls, make the space sing. The kitchen and its adjoining family room attach to one of several outdoor living spaces. Dine al fresco in any weather under the covered veranda—and be sure to light the outdoor fireplace while you’re at it.

The first-floor owner’s suite is so luxe that it’s referred to as the owner’s retreat. And that’s with good reason. Vaulted, whitewashed slat ceilings give the space a coastal-cool vibe, and on a sunny day, the sliding glass door and high-up windows whisk the outside in, flooding the room with natural light and practically making the trees part of the decor.

In the owner’s bath, you’ll find spa-worthy amenities like the wet room, which features multiple shower configurations and a soaking tub, both behind glass to keep the water in. In the winter, you’ll be especially grateful for the heated porcelain tile floors on those chilly mornings.

And in the summertime, the property is an outdoor oasis with a backyard swimming pool plus your choice of decks, terraces, and covered porches perfect for entertaining and relaxing.
