Elegant spaces for indoor and outdoor entertaining abound in this pristine Highland Park home. It is conveniently located close to schools, shopping and dining, all while being just minutes from Downtown. High ceilings and large windows throughout give the home a bright airy feeling.
The gracious two-story foyer with marble and wood inlaid floors is flanked by the elegant living room centered around a large fireplace and the study lined with bookshelves and built-ins.
Graceful arched doorways define the transitions between the rooms, and particularly accentuate the spacious formal dining room. Attention to detail is seen in the rich millwork and wainscoting.
The well-equipped kitchen is centrally located and opens to a cozy breakfast room, comfortable den and to the outdoor living area. The kitchen itself boasts double stainless KitchenAid wall ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, stainless Panasonic microwave, Jenn-Air 4 burner gas cooktop, KitchenAid stainless icemaker and stainless prep sink in the island, double stainless sinks, granite countertops, lovely paneled kitchen cabinets, stainless KitchenAid dishwasher and a breakfast bar. Just off the kitchen is a full butler s pantry with huge walk-in pantry as well. The den features beautifully arched panel doors with intricate millwork surrounding the green-tiled fireplace. Adjacent to this room is a wet bar with icemaker, sink and granite countertops.
Upstairs one finds a central hallway with skylight leading to the five bedrooms. The front two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom, while the other two have separate baths. One of the bedrooms could easily be used as a media or playroom given its ample size. The master suite is light filled with a vaulted ceiling and lovely sitting area, and overlooks the rear yard and arbor.
The beautifully landscaped yard with a stone and wooden perimeter fence offers a private backyard oasis. The covered porch with TV, stone fireplace with built-in grill and outdoor living room situated under the arbor all provide a lovely backdrop for al fresco entertaining.
Mature trees offer shade and texture for wonderful drive-up appeal. This is a very special home in the heart of Highland Park!
