Property Description

Set on .6 of an acre, this exquisite East Kenilworth English Tudor home was transformed over a 2-year gut rehab to seamlessly blend original architectural details & modern light filled spaces. The breathtaking reception hall w/plaster fresco ceiling & hand scraped woodwork are made even more spectacular with newly added antique marble flooring. The new architectural details were approached w/the same care & craftsmanship as were paid to the home's original features. The grand rooms were reworked to improve flow & usher in more natural light created by adding custom leaded French doors & windows w/ antique glass and solid brass hardware. The formal living room, set off the reception hall, helps to set the tone of this extraordinary home w/ barreled plaster ceiling & newly added lighting. The new kitchen includes custom cabinets by O'Brien Harris, solid brass hardware, new herringbone white oak floors, rebuilt wood burning fireplace, a gas 48" Wolf range with custom designed plaster hood and handmade glazed ceramic backsplash. High end finishes include 2-1/4" Iceberg Suede Quartzite countertops, Wolf double oven, Miele dishwasher, Subzero 30" integrated refrigerator, Subzero 30" integrated freezer & all new plaster walls, and ceiling. The bar/coffee station was custom built in keeping with the exquisite design & includes bar refrigerator and appliance center. This impressive space flows seamlessly into indoor/outdoor entertaining with custom French doors leading to bluestone & limestone patio w/ outdoor gas grill & gas firepit. This exceptional living space opens to the expansive, sun-filled family room with French Limestone fireplace surround & heated limestone flooring. The exceptional flow continues into the dining room with refurbished wood paneling, venetian plaster ceiling & banquet seating under the original leaded glass windows. The entire 2nd floor was reworked & modernized w/ a special focus on the primary bedroom suite which includes custom cabinets, vanity, & dressing rooms. Upgrades include new leaded glass windows, Waterworks fixtures, & heated floors. The 2 additional bedroom suites include walk in closets & new Waterworks bathrooms. The 2 other 2nd second floor bedrooms share a new hall bath. The third-floor rec room/playroom was created as a family media room with raised ceiling & built-in speakers & plumbed for bathroom. The showstopper of the house is the Prohibition Room which is accessed through a hidden stairway between the wine cabinets & arched entry between the kitchen & family room. The 1913 secret room was restored to enhance entertaining & preserve original wall writings. This lower level also includes an expansive laundry room & storage. Many of the extensive renovations can be seen here & include an overhead sewer, copper service from street, all new heating, electrical & mechanicals. This comprehensive project included the dramatic landscaping transformation which allows for the seamless flow from inside to outside. This project included all new landscaping & hardscape, outdoor lighting, new limestone front walk, bluestone front patio, gravel back drive w/brick border & new brick walk using vintage brick pavers, bluestone back entry along with architect designed privacy fence with restored back entry gates. The 3-car garage with handsome carriage doors and EV outlets includes an exercise room w/slate floors & bathroom. The long list of extras in this magnificent home include: a whole house C4 audio system with lighting, security, & audio controls, wall mount touchscreen controls on 1st & 2nd floor, whole house interior & exterior speakers, 2 zoned AV, new copper gutters & downspouts along w/custom French doors & windows w/ leaded antique glass to match the home's architectural details. This exceptional home is set on one Kenilworth's most desirable streets and is steps to The Joseph Sears School (JK-8), New Trier High School, the beach, shopping, & dining.
