Pure luxury, this recently updated almost 6,000 sq ft. brick & limestone custom home sits on an extra-wide 30' lot in Lakeview designed by a landscape architect. Current owners spent half a million dollars in upgrades: completely redesigned bathrooms including the infamous 100k master bathroom, outdoor rooftops redone touting materials used in million-dollar yachts, state of the art sound system throughout the entire house in the interior and exterior, professionally landscaped with custom home irrigation system for grounds and planters, fountain, lighting, etc. This city retreat has it all for a discerning buyer who loves to entertain or is looking for their home to be their sanctuary: 7 outdoor spaces with an open beautifully landscaped lot next door, multiple living rooms that can be converted to even more bedrooms, 4 gas/wood-burning fireplaces, 2 laundry rooms, & a full 3 car garage. The grand entry features gorgeous hardwood floors throughout w/in-laid Italian marble that leads to the two-story living room flooded with light boasting a 22ft tall south facing window. The Tuscan Villa inspired kitchen is an entertainer's dream w/Sub-Zero & Viking stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, 13' x 6' imported granite island, 6 burner & griddle stove, 3 ovens +a warming drawer, butler's pantry with wine fridge, endless cabinets for ample storage, and more. The open kitchen/family room with fireplace leads to a lush oasis in the city. The balcony leads to a professionally landscaped blue limestone patio with a fountain, lush gardens, an irrigation system, and a massive garage rooftop deck. Sound system throughout the entire exterior and interior of the home. The lower level completes this home perfect for entertaining: custom built wet bar with separate beverage fridge and ice maker, additional fireplace, walk-out patio, laundry room, bedroom, and bathroom. The whole floor has radiant heat, sits on a caisson foundation (usually used for building bridges- watertight), sump pump and water shut-off system, houses one of the two HVAC systems and one of the two 75 gallon hot water tanks for the home. 2nd level has another family room with dramatic views, 2 bedrooms, office, and a grand bathroom with jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower with body sprays. 3rd level features another bedroom/office with an expansive terrace south-facing terrace with city skyline views, the master suite features another balcony, wood-burning fireplace, walk-in closet, and a wall of closets. The bathroom alone is a masterpiece where the art gives homage to our history and the technology allowed to the current-day lucky few. While the mosaic tile and crystal chandelier were flown in from Italy, this custom bathroom was curated here. WIFI controlled heated floors in bath, custom cabinets, WIFI controlled Mr. Steam shower w/aroma & light therapy, 3 shower jets, jetted tub with 9 heated water jets + wave & pulsating controls, anti-fog mirrors, and many additional custom features. This house is not to be beat. On a quiet, one-way tree-lined street you are within walking distance to Southport corridor's shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, convenient public transportation, and all the amenities the city has to offer. In a top Burley school district, you will never have to leave the city to enjoy a true Chicago neighborhood for many years to come.
