Description

One of Kenilworth's most admired architectural gems, this magnificent English Manor home was designed by noted architect C. Whitney Stevens. Set on more than half an acre on a coveted block steps away from Lake Michigan, this beautiful home was thoughtfully expanded and renovated by Chip Hackley in 2017. Modern amenities were added while impeccably preserving the home's architectural integrity. Grand and timeless with elegant archways and doorways, exquisite leaded-glass windows framed in limestone, a three-story hand-carved oak staircase, richly paneled walls, coffered ceilings and intricately restored plaster moldings on the living and dining room ceilings, this home also exudes warmth and modern casual living. A gourmet kitchen area features a fabulous Barber Wilsons nickel sink from England, high end appliances, an adjacent sunny breakfast room, convenient office and a new mudroom. An addition off of the kitchen created the mudroom and stairs to interior access for newly rebuilt 3 1/2 car garage with partially finished coach house and new pool house with full bathroom. Four levels of smartly finished living space with four ensuite bedrooms, two additional bedrooms and one full bath on the second floor, along with two enormous bedrooms (one currently being used as a recreation room) and new full bath on the recently transformed third level. Included in the renovation are two new bathrooms, a gut rehabbed primary bath and four renovated bathrooms. The basement level offers two well-appointed and generously-sized recreation areas and multiple bonus rooms to meet your needs. Enjoy this ideal location blocks away from Sears Elementary and New Trier HS. Feel the lake breezes from the new luxurious outdoor oasis with stunning pool, bluestone patios and pergolas on a lush property that feels like the English countryside.
