A labor of love, two lots were combined to build this 8,300 sqft custom home with Environs Development for my family. As a top agent, I drew on my experience selling luxury homes and incorporated many of the details I had admired into our new home. From the thoughtfully designed, hand-carved limestone on the facade to the corresponding botanical patterned plaster moldings inside, as well as rift sawn white oak floors, a curved central stairway with custom skylight above, three fireplaces, custom millwork and moldings, Ann Sachs tile, and polished nickel fixtures throughout, our home has timeless decor. The main level has 11-foot ceilings, and generously proportioned living, dining, and family rooms. Our elegant white Christopher Peacock style kitchen has top quality appliances (Viking, SubZero, Miele and Fisher Paykel), a butler's pantry, a walk-in food pantry, a breakfast area, and a kitchen desk with cookbook storage. There are four en-suite bedrooms on the second level, including a luxurious master with dual walk-in closets and an elegant marble bath with separate vanities, steam shower clad in book-matched slab Calcutta Gold marble, a whirlpool tub, and private commode. The top-level includes a den with a wet bar, two more bedrooms (which also work well as home offices), a south-facing roof deck, and attic storage. In the lower level, we have a rec room, a separate craft room (great for legos, homework or gaming), and a home gym. The two en-suite bedrooms on this level have been ideal for the exchange student and au pairs we've hosted, as well as for guests. A second laundry center, as well as two large wine coolers, are on this level. We designed our home to maximize the outdoor space. Our professionally landscaped, fenced front and back yards are perfect for everything from hosting a birthday party or wedding reception, to kicking a soccer ball. (Check out the photos of some of the events we hosted!) The sport court is ideal for hitting a tennis ball, shooting hoops, an above ground pool, or as a dance floor. We also added custom planters to the roof deck so we could grow our own vegetables, pumpkins, etc. The mudroom leads out to our heated 3-car garage via a heated bluestone patio. Other features include a fire sprinkler system, a comprehensive security system, and radiant heat in the master bath and lower level. Southport Corridor is one of Chicago's hottest neighborhoods! Great restaurants, health clubs, playgrounds, shopping, and both the Brown and Red line 'L' stops are within a few blocks!
