Sited on an extraordinary, priceless corner lot in Chicago's historic Gold Coast, this ultimate estate's 120 plus linear feet of exterior limestone, clad facade, and completely custom mahogany triple hung windows, bathes the entire interior with natural light unlike almost any home in the neighborhood. The beautifully executed Beaux-Arts architecture, replete with the stateliest of presences and authentic detailing, stands proudly, as if it had occupied this site since Chicago's Golden years of the 1920s. The project team of highly distinguished building architect (Darcy Bonner), interior architect (Scott Himmel) and builder (BGD&C) combined to create one seamless and elegant house. Designed for upscale living, this sophisticated 10,000 square foot home is an extraordinary example of meticulous design, premium construction and quality without limitations. As a special touch, every room in the home was designed and inspired by a famous room around the world. Impossibly rare, one-of-a-kind three car heated garage and drive with curb cut on Burton place is handsomely woven into the fabric of the facade with a snow melt system embedded in all sidewalks surrounding the home. Dramatic 13.5' ceilings on the main level contribute to an unsurpassed experience as one moves from the grand foyer to the oak paneled living room and vellum paneled dining room. One of famed kitchen designer Mick DeGiulio's most prominently published eat-in kitchens follows the grand public spaces and leads to the cozy, knotty pine paneled family room, itself seamlessly opening into a large exterior terrace. Walking up the grand limestone and oak paneled staircase to the primary floor, one encounters a breathtaking leather paneled library with an antique fireplace and built-in bar. At the other end is the unparalleled Primary Suite, with a grand size matched only by its exquisite materials and detailing. Beautifully built his and her walk-in closets on either side of the Primary Suite were thoughtfully crafted with the utmost detail and elegance. Adjacent is a private exercise studio, spacious enough for multiple pieces of equipment and/or a training area. The third floor features two en suite bedrooms, graced with massive built-ins and a recreation room, which can be converted into either a 3rd en suite bedroom with an attached bath, or to a Zoom room to accommodate today's work from home environment. The lower level showcases a dream home theater with a full bar, two guest suites, a secondary kitchen and a walk-in, climate-controlled wine cellar. All four floors are united by an elevator, servicing up to the top floor with its large and beautifully landscaped roof terrace - a perfect and private place for entertaining friends and family on any given night. Situated in one of the most spectacular locations in Chicago, the owners will have easy access to Chicago's many prominent restaurants and shopping areas, and will be steps from Lake Michigan. All of this truly puts this Chicago home in a class of its own.
