Featuring a Control4 Home Automation System, updated in 2023, this home is a true "Smart Home", providing seamless oversight of the entire home (audio, video media, lighting, security, door openers & locks, climate, inground sprinklers, etc) from the convenience of your phone, while consistently reducing environmental impact. From the moment of arriving at the property, the home's curb appeal is striking: follow the professionally landscaped walkway up to the wraparound front porch and note the craftsman architectural details. The leaded glass front door, adorned with an arched transom and elegant sidelights, swings open to reveal a grand and inviting two-story foyer. Once inside, there is an air of sophistication and spaciousness. The foyer boasts a large landing that allows you to take in the home's open floor plan. The first floor of the home has newly refinished hardwood floors that add an elegant and timeless touch to the entire living space, with a beautiful inlaid herringbone pattern in the formal dining room. This space is exquisite for hosting dinner guests, with a lighted tray ceiling and chandelier adding to the overall ambiance. To the left of the foyer, stairs lead to a mezzanine-level private office, featuring a vaulted 12-foot ceiling. Across from the foyer, the formal living room offers a warm spot to greet guests, with an elegant dual-sided stone fireplace, wall-to-wall windows, and a French door leading to the sunroom, which has lovely blue stone flooring and access to the spacious back patio. The dual-sided fireplace is shared with the gourmet kitchen, where additional design elements continue to impress, including the cat-eye-shaped floating tray ceiling with recessed and pendant lighting above the two-tier center island. The kitchen also has 42" Maple cabinetry, granite countertops, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances including a new gas cooktop, and a walk-in pantry with built-in shelving. The attached breakfast room features a dry bar for more storage, large windows, and a door leading out to the back patio. The family room is an inviting space, featuring a coffered ceiling, recessed lighting, and a gas fireplace with a blue stone hearth. Large bay windows flood the room with natural light, while two patio doors open to the wrap-around front porch. The first floor also features two powder rooms and the home's main laundry room, conveniently located off the 3-car garage. Built-in cabinets fill the walls of the laundry room for maximum storage space, as well as the washer, dryer, and utility sink. The hardwood staircase leads to the second level, where 6 of the home's bedrooms are located. The primary bedroom is a true oasis, featuring a double-door entry, a fireplace, and an octagonal tray ceiling. Dual walk-in closets provide ample storage space, and the en-suite bath offers a luxurious whirlpool tub, a dual vanity, a walk-in shower, and a private commode. The second floor also boasts a second laundry and a bonus loft. The full finished basement offers plenty of additional living space, including a kitchenette with a fridge, sink, and new dishwasher, a theater room with 8 tiered recliners, screen, and projector, a second family room with a stone fireplace, two more bedrooms, a craft room, a full bath, a large workshop, and expansive closet. The large backyard is the perfect spot for relaxation, full of mature trees and features a tiered brick paver patio with a built-in grilling station, fridge, a gas firepit, hot tub, and an outdoor TV. Prime location near downtown Wheaton & Glen Ellyn. Simply stunning!
