Sited on an extraordinary priceless corner lot in Chicago’s finest neighbourhood, this ultimate home of 120 plus linear feet of exterior limestone, clad facade, and completely custom mahogany triple hung windows, bathes the entire interior with natural light unlike almost any home in the Gold Coast! The beautifully executed Beaux-Arts architecture, replete with the most stately of presences and authentic detailing, stands proudly, as if it had occupied this site since Chicago’s Golden years of the 1920’s. The project team of highly distinguished building architect Darcy Bonner, interior architect and builder Scott Himmel and BGD&C combined to create one seamless and elegant house. Soaring 13.5-foot ceiling heights on the main level contribute to an unsurpassed experience as one moves from the grand foyer to the oak panelled living room and vellum panelled dining room. One of famed kitchen designer Mick De Giulio’s most prominently published eat-in kitchens, follows the grand public spaces and leads to the cozy knotty pine panelled family room, ending in a large exterior terrace. 

Walking up the grand limestone and oak panelled staircase to the master floor, one encounters a breathtaking leather panelled library with antique fireplace and built-in bar at one end and is matched by the unparalleled master suite at the other, whose size is matched only by their exquisite materials and detailing. Adjacent is a spacious and elegant exercise studio. The third floor features two ensuite bedrooms, replete with built-ins and a recreation room (that can be converted into a 3rd ensuite bedroom) with attached bath. The lower level showcases a dream home theatre with bar area, two guest suites, a secondary kitchen and a walk-in wine cellar. An elevator, services all 4 levels and the large landscaped roof terrace. Impossibly rare three car heated garage and drive with curb cut on Burton place is handsomely woven into the fabric of the facade with snow melt system embedded in all sidewalks surrounding the house. This is perhaps Chicago’s finest home. The property is on the market for $11.9 million with Nancy Tassone of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty. Cover photo by Tony Soluri.
