This large contemporary-style brick and cedar Bloomingdale home is truly one-of-a-kind. Located on one-acre in Mallard Lake Estates, it is undoubtedly the fantasy of every car lover and cross-country traveler with a recreational vehicle, and still has plenty of space for family living.

The original part of the house was a split-level with a walkout lower level. When it was renovated, a huge heated and air-conditioned garage was added with much more living space above the garage and on the second and third floors.

The elevated main level features a carpeted living/dining room, great room, ceramic-tiled kitchen with eating area and three bedrooms. There is also a two-story foyer with hardwood floors that gives access to all levels of this interesting home. The uppermost level has two more bedrooms and a loft. Mini-kitchens also grace both wings of the house.

The walkout lower level could accommodate a home business but currently it features a sixth bedroom, bathroom, family room with fireplace and sitting room. Outside there is a large deck, a balcony and a shed.

Throughout the home there are special touches like skylights and vaulted or cathedral ceilings. Listing agent Branka Poplonski offers more details:
