Description

Magnificent renovation of fabulous New England Colonial with spectacular curb appeal situated on an exceptionally large, professionally landscaped, sun-filled lot in the heart of East Kenilworth, a few short blocks to Lake Michigan. This 6 BR/5.2 BA home has been meticulously renovated from top to bottom to be "better than new" combining original architectural elements with all the features of a new construction home. No detail has been overlooked! Superb floor plan features gracious reception hall with handsome staircase, stunning and spacious formal rooms with custom wet bar/pantry and newly redesigned crisp white kitchen with custom cabinetry, high end appliances, large center island with fresh quartz countertops and breakfast room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the professionally landscaped yard and patio. This exceptional kitchen is the perfect gathering spot for family and friends and opens seamlessly into the family room with wood-burning fireplace, high ceilings and custom built-ins. There is a private wood-paneled office with built-in bookcases, coffered ceiling, and French doors leading to the bluestone patio. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms and four bathrooms on the second floor, including a sunny and bright primary suite with amazing walk-in closet and a serene spa-like bath plus a convenient 2nd floor laundry with incredible linen storage! The third floor has two additional bedrooms/offices and bath, as well as a playroom/sitting area, perfect for family, guests or working from home. Each bedroom is sunny and bright with excellent closet space. The lower level includes a recreation room, dug out billiard room and exercise space plus a bathroom. Two-car attached garage and two-car detached garage with tons of storage can be accessed though the outstanding, oversized mudroom with cubbies, an island with shoe shelves, and additional laundry. Ideally located just a short walk to the Joseph Sears School, New Trier, Kenilworth beach, Plaza Del Lago, parks and the Metra.
