Enter the property through the stone pillars and enjoy the combination of expansive lawns and mature trees surrounded by wooded areas. The classic brick and cedar home with hunter green accents blends seamlessly with this rare locale. Paver patios and walkways, a charming front porch, spacious decks, a screened porch, stone pathways and knee walls, and a koi pond create dynamic outdoor living spaces.
The floor plan provides graciously sized rooms and flexibility to adapt to a variety of lifestyles. Rich design elements are seen throughout the home from built-in bookcases to volume ceilings with beam accents to tall windows and doors. The heart of the home is the updated chef’s kitchen, which is easily accessible from many different areas of the first floor. It features a true commercial grade Garland stove, large butcher block island, extensive cabinetry, SubZero refrigerator and freezer, two separate sinks, warming drawer, sunny breakfast area with access to the backyard, planning desk, and walk-in pantry. Additional first floor amenities include a private library, wet bar, bonus 5th bedroom, 4th full bathroom, laundry room, and attached three car garage.
The second floor master suite is incredibly spacious and overlooks the property. The master bathroom and walk-in closet are both grand in scale with additional attic storage off of the bathroom that could be finished if desired. Three lovely family bedrooms and two full bathrooms complete the second floor. The full unfinished lower level provides endless opportunities for storage and could be utilized for many different hobbies.
The combination of this well designed and extremely solid built home on a vacation-like setting is rarely found on Chicago’s North Shore.
