My Notes

Almost 2 wooded acres provides a spectacular backdrop for this sensational 6,000+ square foot architectural masterpiece brilliantly designed to capture unending lush views in each and every direction! Located in the intimate and prestigious North Shore suburb of Riverwoods, high ceilings and oversized windows seemingly blend harmoniously with the glorious surrounding grounds making it hard to believe you're only minutes to downtown Chicago and O'Hare airport. Boasting grand room sizes, a fabulous open floor plan, a sumptuous main floor master suite and a coveted 3.5 car garage this idyllic estate has everything you've been looking for!A winding private drive leads back to this nature lover's paradise. Breathtaking is the word that best describes this exceptional one-of-a-kind custom home. A soothing fountain-filled pond and paver brick walkway leads to the glass-filled 2-story foyer with stunning tiered crystal chandelier and Juliet balcony opening to the magnificent family room. Having fantastic 31' x 19' proportions, this 'great room' boasts dramatic vaulted ceilings with accompanying soaring windows and centers around an inviting floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace; two sets of glass doors open to the extra-large patio perfect for entertaining fun.Pillars define the adjacent living and dining rooms both with panoramic views of the lovely acreage. The living room has plenty of room for the baby grand and more and guests will love the open feel when dining in the formal dining room.The nearby kitchen is a chef's dream come true. Striking white cabinets abound and there is a huge center island with vegetable sink, commercial grade stainless appliances, a large planning center and a roomy eating area. And all of this overlooks and opens to the fabulous backyard.There are five big bedrooms; three are on the main floor and two are located in the upper level. Three have their own individual private decks/terraces and one has a private bath. Double doors open to a romantic master suite retreat! Cathedral ceilings create immense architectural interest and features an inviting fireplace, a spa-like marble bath with Jacuzzi and separate shower, his and hers organized walk-in closets and glass doors opening to the patio.A library/study is located off the south wing of the home which could be a playroom or another main floor bedroom if needed as a full bath is just steps away. There is a wonderful office/reading alcove and a laundry/mud on the main level. 

What I love about the home

Retreat look-and-feel, beautiful natural surrounding, matured trees everywhere, private setting, minutes to train stations, easy access to highways, and Chicago O?Hare airport
