Designed in 1898 by well-known Chicago architect William Carbys Zimmerman, this spectacular 8,000+ square foot single-family home is located in the heart of the University of Chicago campus neighborhood and provides an unparalleled combination of gracious public entertaining areas and extensive comfortable family-friendly living spaces. The renovation of the entire infrastructure of this imposing six-bedroom, six and one-half bath home was completed in 2018 with the addition of highly-desirable modern amenities and all new mechanical systems (copper plumbing, 400-watt electrical, 7-zone high-efficiency HVAC, dual hot water heaters, back-up generator, new windows throughout). State of the art automation systems and seven commercial grade wifi hotspot transmitters provide connectivity both inside and out. Selected original vintage features were retained and restored: mahogany and oak woodwork, leaded glass windows, three gorgeous fireplaces. A stunning new addition to the rear of the house creates a one-of-a-kind open kitchen / family room. The kitchen has endless storage and Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. The family room, enclosed on three sides in glass, has a twenty-foot ceiling and its own kitchenette with a gas grill fully vented to the outside and a staircase down to the recreation room with pool table, home gym, and full bath. The second floor offers four sunny bedrooms, two with en suite baths, a hall bath, and a full-sized laundry room with access to a private roof deck with a fire pit. The entire third floor is given to a luxurious master suite, comprised of separate living and sleeping areas, two walk-in closets, and a truly amazing spa bath with double vanity, European shower, and deep soaking tub. The beautifully landscaped private backyard has a separate pergola-covered patio area for outside entertaining. In addition to the main areas described above, the lower level of the house also includes a private four-bedroom, two-bath fully-functional apartment with a separate entrance. There is parking for at least four cars in the double driveway with the possibility of a garage in back.
