The home boasts a white Christopher Peacock chef's kitchen with a forty-eight Wolf Range, forty-eight-inch Subzero refrigerator and freezer with a glass door, oversized quartzite island, custom cabinetry, stainless steel hardware, upgrades galore, and separate eat-in-table area and command center office.   The spectacular thirty-eight by twenty-two formal living room with marble fireplace is inlaid with wood paneling that hails from an old manor house in England. The herringbone hardwood floors,...

velvet Ralph Lauren walls, and built-in shelving make this the optimal room to entertain and gather. The formal dining room with a fireplace and mantle is a multi-purpose area and can easily be utilized as a second family room with two walls of windows, surround sound, and an easy exit to the outdoor bluestone terrace. Completely renovated in 2015, the new nineteen by fourteen family room with a built-in oversized TV has a double-sided fireplace to the exterior bluestone area. A new mudroom with sink, storage, heated floors, and bathroom greets you from the spacious two-car attached garage with radiant heat. The twenty-two by nineteen primary bedroom is located on the first floor located in the rear of the home for privacy and great views of the gardens and attached patio. The spacious primary suite features an entire wall of custom closets with paneled doors and a separate sitting/ dressing room/ office walk-in closet area that leads to the attached primary retreat marbled bathroom. The marble bath has a double vanity with undermount sinks, built-in Waterworks soaking tub, separate shower, polished nickel Waterworks fixtures, and recessed mirrored medicine cabinets. The second floor has five additional bedrooms, two full bathrooms, an upstairs laundry room, a second family room, and a seventeen by thirteen office. Lower-level storage and second laundry room. The professionally landscaped backyard is extremely private and has three bluestone seating areas, one with an outdoor fireplace. A Koi pond draws you across the lushly landscaped backyard with potting shed and outdoor shower to cool down after a hot day at the beach or use as a dog shower. This home is close to town, train, schools (preschools, Joseph Sears School, New Trier High School), and you can hear the waves of Lake Michigan.
