Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a rare and exceptional 2.6-acre private retreat in the heart of Winnetka. Gracious, substantial Georgian home characterized by open, grandly scaled rooms with lofty ceilings and surrounded by expansive grounds in every direction. An idyllic setting on a private lane, in a premier walk-to location, the 6+BR/6.3 BA home was thoughtfully built with the finest materials and design. Spacious and livable formal rooms, plus a true chef's kitchen with two Sub-Zero refrigerators, and family room addition, all overlook gardens with wide pastoral vistas. A serene blend of craftsmanship, clean lines, and natural light, this home can fit any lifestyle. Ascend the classic staircase, past a hallmark Palladian window, to find the peaceful primary bedroom suite with a lovely sitting room and fireplace, three exposures, his-and-hers baths, and walk-in closets. 5+ additional bedrooms, 4 baths, laundry room, and back staircase complete the second floor. Third-floor possibilities abound in the large walk-up attic, an open space with great ceiling heights. Spectacular panoramic views from all rooms on all levels. The bluestone terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy the breathtaking landscape, handsome mature trees, and private pool in the distance. Additional features include 6 fireplaces and an attached 3 car garage. The lower level consists of a welcoming open rec room, bar area, game room with pool table, and plenty of storage space. Known as the largest property in the Crow Island school district, significant subdivision opportunities are available if desired. A proud acquisition and a legacy home for the discerning buyer.
