Property Description

Live just steps away from Downtown Lake Bluff and the Shores of Lake Michigan in this architecturally stunning Tudor style home that boasts over 3700 sq. ft of living space on three floors. Perfectly located on a semi-private cul-de-sac surrounded by lush landscaping, you will enjoy the private setting while being within walking distance to town, the beach, restaurants, parks, and the Metra commuter train. Filled with character and style, this landmark home is a majestic combination of yesteryear and today's fresh look. The exquisite French-leaded windows, 10 ft. coffered ceilings, hardwood floors, timeless moldings and gorgeous built-ins are just a few of the details that make this home a true treasure. The enclosed entry leads to a spacious family room and two sitting rooms flooded with natural light. The inviting wood burning fireplace framed by exotic tiles and masonry surround is the centerpiece of the room. Gorgeous, airy white kitchen with marble countertops, center island, Wolf range and Sub-Zero refrigerator opens to the sunny breakfast room. Designer dining room accommodates large gatherings and is punctuated by a second wood burning fireplace. Fantastic butler's pantry for making drinks and storing wine/cold beverages. On the second floor, there are 4 bedrooms and a large home office with a fireplace and a belvedere to watch the rising sun. Two of the bedrooms are generously sized, with closets to match. The other two bedrooms were originally "sleeping porches". Stunning bathroom with a double vanity and white subway tile. The primary suite on the third floor features a huge walk-in closet and a private deck. The English basement with daylight windows offers space for recreation/playroom and working out and a third full bathroom. New brick paver patio and walkways were installed in 2021 along with professional landscaping to create a backyard oasis. Three car tandem garage offers generous storage and 200-amp service for your EV charging system. Impeccably updated and maintained, this Vliet Museum of Lake Bluff History Distinguished Home Award recipient is truly a one of a kind offering in coveted East Lake Bluff!
