Essentially, new construction with a 5-year old roof, HVAC, windows, appliances, fixtures, insulation...you name it! This home, completely gutted & renovated just 5 years ago, is simply like no other. It is a home where awe-inspiring artistry, exquisite building materials and finishes, an idyllic floor plan, and captivating spaces blend to create a simply "jaw-dropping" home. It is located in Indian Hills Estates, one of the most sought after, picturesque (due to the deep set-backs and buried utility lines) and family-friendly neighborhoods on the Northshore. The Chef's Kitchen/Great Room area is the hub of the home and overlooks, with its expanse of windows, the covered bluestone front porch and patio and colorfully lush front lawn. The "like no other" kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, high-end appliances (think La Cornue range), a hand-built range hood, and a dynamite 10' island (with an astonishing single-piece of quartzite) which is the focal point of this extraordinary space. The hand-selected and large plank French oak floors taken from farmhouses in France and the beamed ceilings reclaimed from local farms give this magazine-worthy home a stylistic flair unseen anywhere else. And the dining room, with its vaulted & beamed ceiling, boasts herringbone floors which are indeed a piece of art work. The magical qualities of this home go on and on. Completing the first floors is a casual, yet elegant front foyer, an entertainment-sized family room which looks out to the rear lawn, a large mudroom, and a delightful powder room. The second floor includes a master suite with his and her closets, as well as two other large bedrooms and full bath. Additional space on the 2nd level is available to create a custom guest suite down the line if wanted (plans are available). Finally, the finished walk-out lower level provides a terrific recreation room and plenty of space for storage, exercise equipment, and workshop, etc. The backyard of this incredible home is a tranquil, country-like oasis filled with mature trees and all the privacy one is looking for. The expansive lawn (certainly large enough for a pool if desired) with the lovely bluestone patio, the large & inviting fire pit, and the gorgeous plantings intricately and artfully woven through all of this green space is indeed wondrous. It is hard to believe that this peaceful respite is only 20 minutes to the city, blocks to top schools, fine dining & shops, and two quick miles to Wilmette's Gillson beach - undoubtedly the nicest spot on the North Shore to enjoy Lake Michigan and all the fun, beauty, and relaxation that it provides. Also enjoy the 4-year old roof, mechanicals, pro-line Pella windows, 2 fireplaces, custom indoor & outdoor Sonos sound system, high-end building materials, dual tankless water heaters, all-copper plumbing, 2-car attached garage, and more.
