At least two guests were appropriately dressed for the opening party of the Scottish Manor, a concept home in Bannockburn developed by Orren Pickell (our magazine is a marketing sponsor). That’s my dashing husband, Peter Turek, on the left, and Orren himself on the right. Our publisher, Randy Hano, dressed in civilian clothes and showhouse booties, is in the middle. Hundreds of guests packed the 9,000-square-foot home, which was decorated by Kiki Luthringshausen and her staff at K-Haus. There are a lot of wow-factor touches, such as the massive reclaimed barn beam in the kitchen (shown here), the bath with a view, the multiple fireplaces…
The Manor is located at 30 Aberdeen Ct, off Telegraph Rd, 3/10 of a mile south of Half Day Road (Route 22) and is open to the public through Sept. 21. Hours are: noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays; 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays, or by appointment. Like what you see? The home is yours for a cool $4.8 million (you’ll have to negotiate separately for the furniture and accessories).
