EXTRAVAGANT ESTATE... Magnificent modernized all-brick 6-bed (4 en suites) 6 1/2-bath grand colonial revival with a temple-fronted facade and a towering hexastyle portico blends the elegance of the past with stylish amenities of today. Tucked-away at the end of a private tree-lined ovoid drive and encircled by nearly 3-acres of manicured lush landscape is an effortless 30-minute drive to downtown Chicago. Impressive from the moment you step into the lordly 2-story marble foyer backdropped by a stunning sidewinding wrap-around staircase is a sun-drenched stately living room and formal 10-seat dining room which are ideal for gracious entertaining. With plenty of natural light throughout the home, the library provides another comfortable place to stretch out for an afternoon of reading, studying, or daydreaming next to the wood-burning electric start wall-to-wall fireplace and well-placed floor-to-ceiling shelving. The restful family room offers a windowed sanctuary that overlooks the diving pool, built-in hot tub, sprawling multi-tiered brick paver patio, lighted tennis, and basketball courts, and rolling green terrain effectively bringing the outdoors inside. Expansive Chef's kitchen boasts 2 built-in Wolf double ovens, 36-inch gas range 4-burner infrared griddle Wolf range-top, 36-inch gas range 4-burner infrared char-broiler Wolf range-top, and stainless electric Wolf steamer with all being covered by a custom vented hood. Sub Zero side by side refrigerator freezer, 2-drawer wine and soda refrigerator, ice maker drawer, 6-inch refrigerated soda tower, granite counters, multiple sinks, and walk-in butler's pantry with separate Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer are just a touch of some of the amazing amenities that make this kitchen truly special. The 400 square foot master ensuite showcases a magazine envy bath where HGTV designers will be in awe of its spectacular beauty and well-placed arrangement including but not limited to custom-organized his and her closets and Trex balcony with picturesque views of the never-ending backyard. Lower level walkout highlights a 2nd family room, 2nd kitchen, 2nd laundry, sprawling entertainment area with direct access to the exclusive courtyard, media room, storage, guest en suite, and fitness room featuring a sauna, steam room, and full bath. Many additional classical style features and sophisticated details are well-preserved and recently restored: extensive millwork detailing, dentil molding, wainscoting, and original pocket doors. This home has outstanding structural integrity and a very long history of family ownership. Ready and waiting for a passionate owner to fill it with life and love for years to come.
