A country estate just minutes from downtown Chicago! This sprawling brownstone and cedar shake Queen Anne has over 6,000 square feet of totally renovated living space and is located on an enormous double lot on the most picturesque block of the South Kenwood historic landmark district. This magnificent home was gut rehabbed to the studs and rebuilt inside and out by a well-known developer just 15 years ago with all new systems (plumbing, electric, multi-zoned HVAC,) roofing, and exterior cladding. The result is an extremely comfortable 5+ bedroom, 5 1/2 bath home with rooms for every purpose. The front entryway opens to a spacious and imposing center entrance hall, featuring an original winding carved staircase up to the private floors. Circling this entrance hall, in an open floor plan, are the living room, den, dining room, family room and spectacular eat-in kitchen, the latter with top appliances (60" Wolf range, 48" SubZero, two Bosch dishwashers, etc.) and big enough for an 8' table. Upstairs, the second floor features 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 baths. The beautiful primary suite is private retreat, with a gas fireplace, two walk-in closets, and a spa bath (double-sized steam shower, soaking tub, two separate sink areas). The third floor provides another sunny bedroom, a full bath with steam shower, a fully-equipped laundry room, and a wonderfully charming storybook playroom. The full-height basement of this home is as finished and well-thought out as the rest, with a private office, a fully-equipped fitness room, a game room, a theater room, a full bath, and a second laundry room. The beautifully landscaped grounds of this spectacular property are special indeed, with a full SportCourt, a seating area for elegant outdoor entertaining, and a wide open grassy side yard for soccer or an ice rink in winter. The gated side drive leads to a matching two-story coach house, the ground floor of which features 3 full garage stalls, plus lots of room for bikes and other equipment. Upstairs is a charming fully-equipped 2-bedroom, 1-bath apartment, perfect for an in-law or office suite. While this very special property is located on a quiet tree-lined street with little thru traffic, Lake Shore Drive access, the Metra station, and downtown bus stops are just a short distance away.
