The Gateway to Glencoe! This thoughtfully renovated home built by notable architect E.E. Roberts provides unparalleled access to the best of the North Shore lifestyle just one block east of the train and town, and three blocks west of Glencoe Beach. You will feel as if you are living in a resort town as you walk to enjoy a picnic lunch at Foodstuffs before heading to Glencoe's Lakefront Park overlooking Lake Michigan. Designed in the Prairie style pioneered by Frank Lloyd Wright, and sited on over a half-acre, the approximately 7,500-square-foot home offers a fusion of historic architectural detail, the highest quality craftsmanship, and 21st century amenities for today's lifestyle. Four levels of light-filled interiors inspire you upon entering. Large picture windows frame serene views of nature and the private backyard. The foyer sets the stage for living and entertaining on a large scale: a gracious, open floorplan with gathering spaces for friends and family that flow to the outdoors with multiple deck areas for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining, soothed by lake breezes. Four bedrooms and a laundry room reside on the second level. The primary suite acts as the ultimate sanctuary with two large custom walk-in closets, a fireplace, a quiet sitting room, and a spa-like bath with dual sinks, soaking tub and separate shower. Completing the home: a private third floor guest suite with full bath, and a meticulously finished lower level that will surprise and delight! Downstairs you will find a new lower-level bar/ kitchen area with custom cabinetry, beverage drawers, a custom-built island seating area, a family room with a custom built media console, a dedicated yoga/ gym space with hotel-like finishes, and a Trackman Golf Simulator room with a bar/lounge area and separate beverage fridge, plus a wine cellar. A bedroom/office and full bathroom complete the lower-level space. The current owners spared no expense in the updating of this home, intending to make it their "forever" home. Countless upgrades grace the interiors - from new paint and custom wall-coverings throughout to new light fixtures and sconces, new LED lighting with Lutron Caseta WiFi Controls, new custom closets, new HVAC and so much more. Architectural details such as 9-foot beamed ceilings, chevron arched doorways, 7-piece crown molding, and fully refinished quarter-sawn oak floors infuse the interiors with authenticity and timelessness. This rare and unique home is a true gem, offering the very best of North Shore living. Experience it for yourself!
