Our Houses

The Providence House

The Providence house on Sunset Ridge Road in Northbrook is located on 2.3 acres next to the forest preserve, with a barn, an exceptional outdoor patio, a pond and yards to house organic gardens and farm animals. While the home is just a moment’s drive to downtown Northbrook, the acreage and landscape create a peaceful and private refuge within the Northbrook community.

Our home is fully furnished, renovated, and warmly maintained for family-style living. Household supplies, outside grilling, flat-screen televisions, cable, internet service, and laundry are provided. In the spirit of family-style living, Providence residents share the kitchen and dining area, great room, and recreation room in the basement (Ping-pong!). Residents cook for themselves and share in household chores. Providence promotes a positive peer culture where residents lead by example, maintain a positive and collaborative style of interaction, and create a supportive fellowship.

Staff are located onsite in the house library and den. Peer support groups, private AA meetings, and family visits are welcome in the chef’s kitchen and great room. The cozy great room is the center of the Providence home, and promotes connection among residents, staff, and guests.

Residents share five, well-sized, double-occupancy bedrooms and four full, updated bathrooms all located upstairs.

The Lee House

With the success of the home on Sunset Ridge Road and demand to accommodate more residents, Providence Farm expanded to a second home on Lee Road in Northbrook in 2023.

Just two miles to the northwest of the home on Sunset Ridge Road, the Lee house sits on 1.17 acres surrounded by beautiful landscaping and an expansive yard with several sitting areas.

Walk inside and you’ll see why design magazines have featured this stunning home.  More importantly, this home offers a warm, family-style layout with  multiple areas for groups to gather for conversation.

It is also fully furnished, and with a 2024 renovation, offers six bedrooms and six bathrooms.  Like the Sunset Ridge home, residents share space, prepare their own food, and collectively manage household chores all with the support of onsite staff.

Both homes are set in residential, family-oriented neighborhoods.
