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.
