The former estate of Pabst Brewing Company president and chairman Harris Perlstein has hit the market for $18 million in Glencoe, Illinois. The original 14,300 square foot Georgian Revival residence was designed by Chicago-born architect William Pereira and built in 1936. Curbed Chicago reported in 2017 that the 2.19 acre property sold in 2014 for $4.8 million to insurance executive Jeffrey S. Lange and was put back on the market just 10 months later for $6.3 million. It sat on the market for a number of years before selling at a deeply discounted $3.5 million in 2017. Now on the market after an extensive three-year, full-gut renovation meticulously executed by the owners themselves, 443 Sheridan encompasses a wealth of modern amenities whilst preserving the property’s historic importance. Situated on 2.19 verdant acres the 9 bedroom, 14 bathroom home stuns with grand moments and rich architectural details in keeping with a Georgian-style manor.
The finished product is less stately and more inviting courtesy of bespoke finishes and a modern floor plan designed for both large-scale entertaining and intimate family gatherings. The contemporary kitchen features custom cabinetry, duelling islands, installation-worthy custom lighting, a gorgeous appliances suite and an electric fireplace for ambiance at the push of a button. Massive sliding glass doors flood the kitchen and breakfast nook with natural light-and provide effortless access to the courtyard and resort-style grounds beyond. Additionally, the home’s chicly appointed guest house has been revamped to include a kitchen, family room, powder room and two ensuite bedrooms. Connected to the main house by a window-lined passageway and possessing a private patio entrance to the yard, visitors can meet up for meals or by the pool-or keep to themselves when so desired. Outside, the sprawling estate comes complete with meticulously manicured grounds that delight the senses and define the property for leisurely pursuits. The property is on the market for $18 million with Jamie Ficco of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty.
