Property Description

Set on a spectacular 108 x 150 corner lot in the Gold Coast of La Grange, this extraordinary home projects a statement of refined elegance and timeless stature. As you enter into the spacious foyer, you'll find a handsome staircase and large entryways that lead you to bright, airy interiors that are filled with natural light. Impressive expanses of large windows provide that amazing light as well as gorgeous views of the landscaped exteriors. Inspire your entertaining goals with an immensely-sized living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a dining room with privacy doors. Richly-hued hardwood floors are featured throughout - and many of the carpeted rooms also offer hardwoods underneath the carpet. The absolutely exquisite sun/family room is both heated and cooled and provides incredible space to bring the outdoors in, while entertaining or relaxing on your own. The very large, highly functional kitchen with a SubZero refrigerator, new dishwasher, new microwave and solid, substantial cabinetry provides an opportunity for expansion or enjoying your culinary side just as it is. There's a spacious second floor with four large bedrooms and an incredible tandem room with a soaring, beamed ceiling - this room can function as an enormous fifth bedroom, the ultimate exercise space, or a private home office. The finished basement features a recently finished rec room with an additional fireplace (the owner states they have not used this fireplace), a huge storage/utility room, and two staircases to the foyer and the mudroom, which provides exterior access. There are two furnace systems and the home is centrally cooled through one central air system. Meticulously maintained throughout, the home features a new battery backup for the sump pump, and the second sump pump is new as well. The work/school-from-home potential of this home is fabulous - along with the amazing tandem room upstairs, there are a beautifully designed built-in desk and bookcases in one of the bedrooms upstairs, as well as a perfect, private home office on the first floor off the foyer, which also features built-in bookcases. This home was custom designed by distinguished architect Philip Duke West and built by John Nelson, who are also credited with building other prominent homes in Hinsdale and throughout Chicagoland during the post-WWII era of stately brick architecture that features clean lines and venerable design. The location of this home on gorgeous Blackstone Avenue is sought-after for its convenience to vibrant downtown La Grange, all the highly regarded schools nearby, and the two Metra stations within blocks away, as well for the beauty of the surrounding blocks which feature some of the most desirable architecture in the area. Please exclude the powder room mirror on all contracts.
