One of Winnetka's most magnificent estates, 10 Woodley Road is the "Ultimate Private Resort," offering a grand lifestyle of refined elegance, creature comforts, and breathtaking natural beauty. Owned by the same family for more than 25 years, this exceptional Mayo & Mayo brick Georgian masterpiece (the first home built on sought-after Woodley Road) is set on 1.6 lushly landscaped acres. The classic 1928 residence has been renovated and expanded to perfection with uncompromised quality and no expense spared. Award-winning luxury builder Benvenuti & Stein kept the home's timeless grace intact while also focusing on functionality for today's modern living. With fresh, sophisticated decor, the 5-bedroom, 5.3-bath home seamlessly integrates formal and casual gathering spaces. The dramatic center entry foyer boasts a winding staircase, Palladian window, marble floors, and deeply molded archways that lead to the luxurious formal living and dining rooms. In the south wing, you'll find a handsome library/office, sunroom with two walls of windows, elegant powder room, and paneled cabinetry room. In the north wing, there's a family room with imported English paneling, a second office, a butler's pantry, a full bath, and a mudroom. The heart of the home is the masterfully designed gourmet kitchen and breakfast room, with 11-foot ceilings, top-of-the-line Wolf and Subzero appliances, a large island with two dishwashers and two sinks, and a gas fireplace, one of eight fireplaces in the home. A spectacular all-season octagonal screened porch brings the outdoors in, with full panoramic views of the magnificent grounds. Just half a flight up from the kitchen and family room area is a great room outfitted with custom cabinetry, two built-in desks, and its own full bath. Upstairs, the primary suite is a tranquil sanctuary, and boasts a tray ceiling, private balcony, walk-in closet/dressing room, soaking tub, and double shower. Four additional bedrooms (two with en-suite baths), another full bath, laundry room, and additional built-in cabinets complete this floor. Finished with the quality of construction consistent with a home of this caliber, the lower level is perfect for entertaining, working out, and relaxing with the family. There's a custom home theater with surround sound and reclining leather chairs, recreation room with fireplace, card room, gym, billiards room, kitchen/wet bar, video arcade room, wine cellar, full bath, and storage space galore. What truly raises this property to the highest standard is the fine estate grounds. Along with spectacular formal gardens designed by renowned landscape architect Rocco Fiore, the resort-like setting features a pool and tennis court, an English conservatory, a koi pond, a golf practice area, vegetable and herb gardens, and multiple stone terraces, porches, and fountains. Just 16 miles from the city, the property is centrally located for New Trier, Loyola Academy, and North Shore Country Day. Ten Woodley Road provides an unparalleled lifestyle that can compete with any 5-star hotel. It is a secluded retreat, an entertainer's haven, a gardener's paradise, and an estate worthy of the most discerning homeowner.
