Property Description

A notably impressive combination of classic style with today's sought-after modern conveniences. Built in 1923, this three-story stone and stucco home overlooks the ravine to the south and an in-ground pool to the west. Set back almost 100 feet from St. Johns, a thick privacy hedge screens this hidden sanctuary. Enter the leaded glass front entry door to the vestibule then stroll into the grand 20' foyer. A classic fireplace with lime stone mantel complements a richly paneled living room, complete with custom glass front cabinetry for treasured books or special collections. Experience the tranquil ravine from the elegant formal dining room. Tucked into a corner of the breakfast room is the butler's pantry area with glass front cabinets and generous counter space ready for all kinds of entertaining. Plain and Fancy white kitchen with granite counters incorporates today's finest Wolf, Bosch and Sub-Zero appliances. Mudroom/pantry off kitchen is the ideal place for storing hats, boots, scarves, gloves and jackets, plus two additional cabinets for extra kitchen storage. Main bedroom has rich cherry paneled walls and floors, a corner gas fireplace, sitting room with windows on all sides, two professionally organized closets and full bath with a Kohler Habitat enclosure. 2nd bedroom includes a sitting room, dressing room and full bath; 3rd bedroom has a full bath and a wall of custom built-ins. A bonus room on the second floor is equipped with a full bath, beverage bar with microwave and refrigerator, closet space and balcony with stairs down to the pool--so many possibilities: additional bedroom suite, home theatre, game room, artist or hobby studio or work out room. Second floor custom built-in desk/office with many file drawers and well-designed cabinet space. Laundry on the second floor is complete with cabinets, hanging bar and built-in ironing board, plus there's also an additional washer and dryer in the lower level. Third floor attic has a full bath, cedar closet and plenty of space to expand. Integral elevator from the first to the second floor. Unfinished basement has utility room, half bath and storage. In 2021 a new prime cedar shake roof was installed. Copper gutters. Three car garage includes radiant heat, a dog washing station and stairs leading straight to the basement. Inside the cedar privacy fence is an in-ground swimming pool for summer enjoyment. Ideal location just a short walk to Highland Park High School and town.
