Exceptional home fully renovated from top to bottom with a focus on blending sophisticated design and comfortable family living. Set on an acre on one of Northfield's most desirable streets - private and quiet, yet a vibrant neighborhood with connecting paths and cut-throughs. Ideal floor plan graciously flows from formal to casual, each room with abundant sunlight that brings the outdoors inside all year-round. Formal Living Room opens to Game Room with a fully appointed wet bar, paneled fireplace. Wonderful Dining Room, sized for large family holidays has site lines through to back gardens and a 700+ bottle wine cellar. Gallery connects each of the living spaces and provides its own area for entertaining. Stunning cook's dream Kitchen with center island seating, a separate breakfast nook and large pantry overlooks the Family Room. Sunlit Breakfast Room extends off kitchen with full length windows and vaulted ceiling. Back hallway with 2nd powder room leads to Mudroom, back staircase and attached, heated 3 car garage. Hardwood floors with radiant heat throughout first floor. Second floor has complete primary suite with separate sitting room, private balcony, large walk-in closet and large exercise room. Four additional bedrooms (2 with renovated en-suite baths and 2 connected by Jack-n-Jill bath) and private tree-top setting office (could be a 6th bedroom or nursery) flow across second floor. Spacious kids' Recreation Room - just like a basement but better - is accessed by back stairs and has wet bar with refrigerator, gas-starter fireplace, abundant built-in storage, and an additional separate bonus homework/office space. Bluestone patio creates ideal outdoor living space perfect for outdoor living or entertaining -- built-in grill with beverage cooler, gas log fire pit, spectacular screened-in porch and overflowing lawns and gardens. Room to add a pool, set up an ice-rink and more. Exterior was completely renovated by Benvenuti & Stein (2019) to add cedar shakes, replace all trim and framing, add copper gutters and downspouts. Meticulously maintained and move-in ready. Short walking distance to both of Northfield's award winning schools (Middlefork K-3 and Sunset Ridge 4- 8) and in the New Trier High School district.
