The owners spared no expense in highlighting the vintage charm of this serene Lakeside property while selecting only the best decorator materials and modern technologies. Every room and design element in this home will make you fall in love. This home was truly designed for both entertaining and everyday living, with plenty of space and fabulous windows to take in the view of the surrounding, iconic architecture and water views. Enjoy an open floor plan, high ceilings and the heart of the home, a fabulous chef's kitchen with stainless steel appliances, Brizo faucets, designer cabinets, imported European hardware and Calacatta Borghini marble on every surface. The adjacent dining room comfortably accommodates a party of ten. The home features French Oak floors laid in a classical chevron pattern. The Living Room features an elegant wood-burning fireplace and a custom built-in dry bar. Imagine tossing another log on the fire as you gaze at the architectural detail all around you, from the beautiful plaster ceiling medallions and custom moldings to the firewood nook and flow-through views extending from the Lake just outside your window all the way to the back of your home. As you transition from any room in the home to the next room, you'll notice matching oak and polished nickel door hardware, custom designed by Water Street, which unifies each space and highlights the attention to the designer detail throughout the home. All the mechanicals are new. The interior spaces benefit from both a SpacePak, high pressure air conditioner and an Aprilaire whole home humidifier system, all controlled via a Google Nest smart home system. Every electrical switch in the home is a wi-fi enabled Lutron Caseta device, wired and ready for your custom settings. The primary and secondary bedrooms each feature custom-designer wood built-ins and wardrobes. The primary bedroom is expansive, with views of the Lake and ample room for a cozy reading nook or desk, in addition to a king-sized bed. The second bedroom is currently in service as a large, rich and moody office. In addition to a beautiful feature wall and art lighting, the office features designer lighting by Kelly Wearstler and imported European cabinet hardware. The primary bathroom and powder room are true jewel boxes. Each features heated floors and tile by Artistic Tile in the Merchandise Mart. The large, expansive primary bathroom features ample built-in storage, an enormous, 67" soaking tub, and an oversized waterfall shower. The Calacatta Gold marble sink is honed from one solid piece of stone and the hardware is Kallista all from Hydrology. The powder room features an Art Deco-styled classic sink in Nero Marquina marble, Lefroy Brooks hardware, an Audubon Society floor to ceiling mural (imported from London), custom Kelly Wearstler lighting and an intricate mosaic pattern by Artistic Tiles cover heated floors. For added convenience, there is a brand-new LG ThinQ wash tower featuring a family-sized washer and gas dryer setup in the hallway just outside the bedrooms. The entire home is insulated, and every window and door has been upgraded to new, fire-rated glass and hardware. The five large windows along the northern exposure, along with the exterior north facade are protected and subject to the Landmarks preservation review board. Restoration Works' skilled craftsmen fitted the windows to incorporate double-glazing on each individual pane, matching the exacting standards of the Landmarks Preservation board. All of the windows are operational, tightly weather sealed and offer great soundproofing. Additionally, all window and exterior door hardware is polished nickel, in keeping with the custom brass and nickel hardware throughout the home.
