Residence on Historic Jens Jensen Pond by Tom Shafer Architects Sells for $3.95M
600 Washington Avenue, Glencoe, Illinois, United States, 60022
It’s come to our attention that a large custom home just steps to Glencoe’s Skokie Country Club sold for $3,950,000 in January 2019. We first shared the property when it hit the market in October 2018 for $4,295,000. Designed by Tom Shafer Architects from 2005 – 2006 and built by H/S Builders LLC from 2007 – 2008, the home is said to follow traditions within the late English Domestic Revival Period. At 8,700 square feet, the residence exudes warmth while offering a generous amount of space for private family life as well as large gatherings. The home features outstanding craftsmanship and timeless beauty both inside and out. Gracious formal living and dining rooms open to patios, a gourmet eat-in kitchen with island includes a breakfast and sitting area while a study with fireplaces overlooks the pond. There are six bedrooms and nine bathrooms throughout, including a lovely master suite with fireplace, balcony overlooking the gardens, a private office and two walk-in closets. Developing the 0.82 acre property included the task of restoring the existing landmarked pond by the late famed landscaped architect Jens Jensen. This task, as well as all additional landscaping was handled by Craig Bergmann Landscape Design, Inc. Additional amenities include a snow-melt driveway, an attached three car garage and patio with pergola & grill. It was on the market for $4,295,000 with Elise Rinaldi.
