Property Description

Truly one-of-a-kind Zen oasis on an oversized (30' x 125') corner lot in the heart of Bucktown. 3 outdoor spaces off each level - a courtyard, a terrace and a roof deck. Has 6 parking spaces- a 3-car indoor attached garage + 3 exterior spots. Originally an 1880's commercial/residential property, Norsman Architects transformed the brick building in 2011 into a 6,500 SF home of sprawling luxury with 6 BD's, 5.2 BA, and 2 offices. This rare home boasts 12' and 14' high ceilings as well as rare features including a lower level spa and sauna, a secret doorway, an outdoor koi pond and living sedum green rooftop decks. The home is extremely eco-friendly, featuring a solar-paneled hot water/furnace system - keeping utility costs minimal - and low VOC finishes throughout. Enjoy Control 4 technology for security, music and television. Upon entering through the reclaimed wood carved double doors in the center of the home, you are greeted by an iconic Louis Poulsen "artichoke" light fixture offset by powerful 10 ft antique Asian doors concealing a full size walk-in coat closet; standing as a metaphor for the practicality and functionality within the house whilst assimilating unparalleled design elements. The first floor maintains a modern Zen aesthetic anchored by a generous 14'6" x 13' interior courtyard flowing smoothly between the inside and the outside and bridging two halves of the home. This courtyard/meditation lounge between the kitchen and dining rooms, cut out of the original masonry, brings in natural light from all angles and floods the different floors of the interior with warm daylight. Enjoy a modern chef's kitchen with imported red glass Copat Italia cabinetry, 2 full size and integrated Liebherr refrigerators and separate freezer, 5-burner Miele cooktop, Miele double oven with separate Miele speed oven, dual sinks, and lavish amounts of cabinetry. The eat-in cantilevered island with white Carrera marble countertops is a beautiful contrast to hand-hewn hardwood floors (maintained throughout) and the original exposed brick. A modern European wood stove fireplace sits as a focal point in the adjacent family room - a stylish way to cozy up in the cold Chicago winters. Walk through the beautiful dining room and scullery - with new U-Line fridge and freezer drawers - to the formal living room featuring a custom limestone fireplace hand carved by French stone masons. The main level library/office oozes charm with custom walnut millwork and bookcases and even a hidden staircase leading to a separate "secret" room bordering the lower level lounge. The amazing lower level transports you to a custom bamboo wet bar and lounge with semi-dome ceiling adjacent to a media room stylized in the vein of old Paris. Additionally, enjoy two separate bedrooms- including a full guest suite- a 900-bottle temperature-controlled wine room and at-home spa complete with diffused Swarovski crystal lights, a full size sauna and dreamy steam shower with rain waterfall showerhead. The feeling of serenity extends to the second floor with a grand cantilevered custom staircase created from African Bubinga wood and stainless steel. Four bedrooms sit on one level, including the impressive primary suite. Enjoy 2 large walk-in closets and a sumptuous primary bathroom with an oversized jetted bathtub and a "car wash" steam shower. The sitting room off the primary suite leads to idyllic gardens with landscaping by Botanical Urban Design (including a self-irrigation system), pergola, full size trees, privacy panels and a large koi pond - truly the ultimate in tranquil decadence. Finally, lounge or entertain on the "living" rooftop deck, covered in sedum, making you forget you're in the city.
