Property Description

Better than new, magnificent renovation and expansion of this architecturally significant George Maher home, circa 1891, originally called the "Spaulding House." Meticulously expanded and rebuilt in 2004 with ongoing updates ever since, this spectacular 5+ BR/8.5 BA home with an oversized three-car garage and coach house is set on a professionally landscaped, sun-filled lot in the heart of East Kenilworth, just blocks to Sears School, New Trier, Lake Michigan and the Metra. This truly special home combines beautiful architectural detailing with the features and amenities of a thoughtfully designed and carefully executed new house. No detail has been overlooked inside or outside. Superb floor plan features a gracious reception hall with elegant staircase, stunning formal rooms, a centrally located library/office with gas fireplace and a wonderful kitchen with fabulous custom cabinetry, soapstone countertops, a spacious quartzite and Wenge wood island with seating and an inviting sun-filled breakfast room encased with a bay of windows. The grandly scaled family room with 10' ceilings has a superb built-in wet bar and custom media cabinetry and is the perfect gathering spot for watching the Super Bowl, family or social get-togethers and/or to curl up with a book in front of a cozy fire. The kitchen and family room overlook the incredible outdoor space with a perfectly scaled bluestone patio, outdoor wood-burning fireplace, grassy backyard and a vegetable garden. The family room has two sets of french doors with transoms leading to the outdoor terrace. Beautiful architectural detailing, abundant natural light, three indoor fireplaces, a coveted back staircase, the best "boot room" on the north shore, and high-end finishes throughout. The second floor features four spacious bedrooms, each with its own dedicated bath and spacious custom closet, including a serene primary suite with handsome gas fireplace, custom closet and gorgeous spa bath with separate soaking tub, heated towel warmers and large walk-in shower. The third floor has two large sun-filled bedrooms each with a built-in desk, two additional beautifully appointed full baths, lots of closet space and an open bonus loft/office area, perfect for working from home. Radiant floor heat in kitchen, breakfast room, family room, mudroom and primary bath. Lower level includes recreation room, exercise room, abundant storage, full bath (designated for human and dog use with hand held spray) plus a large laundry room with two sets of washer/dryers. Expanded three-car detached garage (2009) with finished loft space and full bath, perfect as a kids or adult hangout area, and outdoor hot/cold shower for beach goers. Ideally located just a short walk to the beach, Sears School, New Trier, parks and the Metra.
