Exquisite renovation and expansion on stunning, professionally landscaped grounds in highly sought-after East Kenilworth location. Meticulously renovated and executed by von Weise Associates with additions to the main house including: kitchen, breakfast room, dining room and mudroom (2000), plus ongoing updates ever since including: new 3-car garage and coach house (2008), renovations to the primary suite (2011) and kitchen (2018). Sophisticated to the taste of the most discerning buyer, yet warm and comfortable, this truly breathtaking 5 BD/4.1BA home combines exceptional architectural detailing with the features and amenities of a thoughtfully designed and carefully executed new house. Tastefully appointed, no detail has been overlooked inside or outside. Superb floor plan features a gracious foyer with fireplace, handsome wood-paneled office with fabulous wet bar, a seamless blend of casual and formal gathering spaces with adjoining family and living rooms plus an outstanding, state-of-the-art kitchen with custom cabinetry, polished Calacatta gold marble countertops and backsplash, top-of-the-line, stainless steel appliances (SubZero, Wolf, Viking, etc.), a breakfast area with fireplace plus a built-in planning desk hidden discreetly behind accordion doors. A striking dining room with coffered ceilings, slate flooring, breathtaking views of the private yard and French doors leading to the expansive, 1000+ sf wraparound porch is primed for indoor/outdoor entertaining. Gracious, light-flooded staircase with floor-to-ceiling windows leads you to the 2nd floor which includes a luxe primary suite with built-ins, walk-in closet and spa-like bathroom featuring hardwood floors, chrome Waterworks fixtures, antique sink sconces and fireplace. Two additional bedrooms and a timeless white marble bath complete this floor. The 3rd floor suite, with treetop views and abundant natural light, includes two bedrooms, a Jack-and-Jill bath and ample storage space. On the lower level you'll find a spacious recreation room, exercise room, wine cellar, full bath plus a large, fully-equipped laundry room. A 3-car detached garage and coach house provides ample space for visiting guests, in-laws or the like. A distinguished, yet comfortable home on one of the most coveted blocks in East Kenilworth just steps to Sears School, New Trier, Lake Michigan and the train too. This truly special home is a gem not to be missed!
