Don’t miss “Whose House? Raubs House!” in AOM’s UBER HIP HOMES
Raub’s house is always on my list of places to bring friends that travel to Chicago. I can always count on him to prepare something marvelous just for us! A hearty Chicken Caesar salad with the biggest hand cut croutons, the crunchiest green beans, fresh from the oven French bread slathered with a creamy whipped butter–YUM! All the while day drinking a good Riesling followed by one of his signature desserts. Everything is just superb as we break bread in the dining room of this 3000+ sq ft turn of the century Victorian Row house. It sits on an enchanting block in Chicagolands Bronzeville district. Designer, artist and professional world traveler are just a few things that come to mind when you discussing this Renaissance man.
Just recently I joined Raub and friends for his yearly Holiday Open House Christmas Soiree. Here are some of the highlights of his beautiful home and the beautiful people that attended his event!
I’ve enjoyed Raubs house in Spring and Summer, but this is my first Winter visit. I visited his daughters room and was in pink and green heaven. All her sweet little gifts, her own dollhouse and artwork made by Raub especially for her! Did I mention she has her very own Christmas tree?! And that Carrera Marble spa bath–*faints gracefully onto the floor. After I pulled myself together, I continued down the hall to the conservatory.
And then on to the Master bedroom, a sanctuary at the front house that includes a sitting room and a closet with French doors that holds Raubs collection of Italian handmade loafers and custom wear!
Thank you Raub for allowing us a peek into your lovely Uber Hip Home!
