Description

Beautiful English country home in one of east Winnetka's BEST locations! Nestled back on this huge and extremely private yard with lake breezes and seasonal views of the lake (without lakefront taxes!), plus hidden path for 1 blk walk to town and train! Owner is well renowned designer who bought this fantastic home for her family and was in the process of making it incredible-when a wonderful opportunity came their way. Your LUCK!! She has finished most projects on her list such as the most gorgeous high-end kitchen you've ever seen! Including LaCanche range, manhattan leathered marble island, 100-year-old beams, Buster and Punch hardware, all new handmade cabinets. New floor plan which created much better flow, new bedroom and bath, amazing new full butler's pantry/ mudroom, created 1st and 2nd floor laundry, put in heated floors, upgraded electrical throughout, all new appliances, vintage European light fixtures, added Tesla super charging station, new fireplace in the updated sunroom just to name a few. She did all this with her family in mind so only the finest materials and finishes. Other highlights include - Enclosed indoor pool with separate full bath, 4 fireplaces, 2 car attached garage, huge deck overlooking the near 1/2-acre grounds (.48), lovely and private views out of every window! Winding private road with no traffic and surrounded by $3.8+ homes. Unobstructed view of Maple park and beach which will never be changed! WAY too many improvements to list here- extensive list in additional info. This is truly a special home with an amazing feeling in a hidden oasis location!!! SPECTACULAR!
