See the bold and bright design of a Highland Park Social Club founder’s home
This 1930s home on the French streets of Highland Park has been updated and redesigned with a personal touch. The house is owned by Deborah Scott, co-founder of Park House, Highland Park Village’s exclusive social club. The house is within walking distance of the luxury mall.
The house at 4412 Belclaire Ave. was originally built in 1934 but renovated while Scott owned it. She said the renovation was inspired by older homes with a modern twist inside.
“We were living in London at the time and had seen a lot of old house renovations there that were very open and modern, almost like a loft in an old shell,” Scott said in an email. “That was our goal, to create an open space, perfect for entertaining.”
The main house has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a powder room on 6,543 square feet. The guesthouse adds extra square footage and has a kitchenette, bathroom, and bedroom.

Scott said art played a part in the renovation, along with a desire to incorporate color and provide flexibility.
“We designed this house to be a fun place to spend time with ourselves, family and friends,” she said.
White walls and wooden floors in the entrance hall, living room and dining room create a visual space for art. A living room and a dining room are located at the front of the house, near the entrance hall. Scott called one of the front rooms an “art room”, and that’s where a room called “The Whisper Raum” was placed. Across the hall and across the dining room, another living space has colorful wallpaper and a stylish orange bar. Scott said it was her favorite room in the house and she planned to have an orange bar in her family’s new home.
The bar room is open to the main living space or family room, which is accessible from the room with the bar, dining room, kitchen and another living space. The family room doors give access to the backyard. Outside, the house has a swimming pool and a patio. There is also a covered patio area with a fireplace.
The five bedrooms in the main house are on the second floor. The master suite has a stunning all-black bathroom (there is a black tub) with metallic accents and a large walk-in closet. Scott said the black bathroom was inspired by the Eagle Island Lodge in Botswana, where she and her family went on a safari during the home’s renovations. The bathrooms in the luxury tented suites had been recently renovated and were decorated in black with gold accents, she said.
The home is on the market for $6.995 million, listed by Damon Williamson of Compass.
