Property Description

Absolutely stunning architectural gem built in 2018. This gorgeous almost 7,000 sq ft ultra modern home boasts a completely open floor plan in the main living space with stunning views of the magnificently landscaped yard. As you walk through the front door, the first thing you'll notice is the gorgeous custom chandelier commissioned by Red Fern Glass. From the front, the home is surprisingly private with a brilliantly designed gallery hallway in the front that provides endless wall space for artwork while providing a private barrier to the open space that awaits behind. The main floor is anchored by a 10 foot long custom, floating DaVinci fireplace. A custom high end kitchen boasts a large island, high end cabinet matched appliances and Viking commercial cooktop. Entertaining in this home is a breeze especially when the weather is nice, with a full sliding wall from the family room out to the patio. No detail overlooked with 5 en-suite bedrooms, enormous 1st floor primary bedroom suite with massive his and hers walk in closets. This smart home also boasts a full array of features including custom LED lighting accents, smart fully integrated switches and thermostats throughout, built in speaker system with separate zones throughout the entire home. Considering the vast open feel of the common areas, this home is surprising energy efficient, so much so that it has won awards for efficiency. It has 3 separate zones for heating and air as well as 3 tankless water heaters. The lower level of this masterpiece is the perfect setting for quiet game nights at home, watching the latest hit movie in the theatre room, or a great space for sleepovers with friends or family. The 5th bedroom in the basement would be ideal for long term guests or perfect for a live in nanny or Au-pair. Additional storage space could be finished as a 6th bedroom, home gym or Golf simulator. The home is situated on nearly half an acre with multiple blue stone patios, built in gas fire pit, putting green and tranquil water feature. Professionally landscaped by Chalet. This home has also won multiple awards for the engineering and design elements. Located in a neighborhood surrounded by multi-million dollar homes and only a couple blocks from Wescott School, walk to the train and downtown Northbrook.
