Description

Set on a half-acre plus in East Kenilworth and blocks from the lake, this exceptional home is known as one of the prettiest in the Village. The impressive first floor with a grand foyer with imported English parquet and a bridal stairway leads to the elegant dining room and custom wet bar/butler's pantry. The classic living room with a fireplace has bay windows overlooking the lush yard. A private wood-paneled office with built-in bookcases, coffered ceiling, and French doors leads to the bluestone patio. The generous family room with white cabinetry and hidden planning desk opens to the sun-filled kitchen and offers the "open floor plan" that is on everyone's wish list. The expansive kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, large island with seating, and breakfast room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooks the professionally landscaped yard and patio. An oversized mudroom with cubbies, island with shoe shelves, and laundry along with a 2 car attached garage finish out the incredible first floor. The second floor includes a luxe primary suite with a new bathroom and oversized walk-in closet. 4 additional bedrooms, 3 newer bathrooms, and a sizeable laundry room finish out this exceptional space. The third floor includes 2 offices with a newer bath along with a playroom/sitting room. The lower level includes a rec room, billiard room, gym, and bathroom. An additional 2-car detached garage and storage add to the unparalleled functionality. This spectacular home is set on one of Kenilworth's most sought-after streets and has been extensively expanded and renovated with the highest level of finishes all with a thoughtful eye focusing on family living. 221 Essex's location is unbeatable - just steps to The Joseph Sears School (JK-8), the award-winning New Trier High School, shopping, dining, and the beach.
