Property Description

Upon entering the ornate 10' tall double doors into this regal brownstone on historic Elm Street, you are immediately graced with a sense of modern grandeur. Originally built in 1896 and completely gut-rehabbed, this 6,500 SF contemporary open floor-plan spared no expense. Highlights include 11 foot high ceilings, rare Versailles-patterned birch wood floors, and double crown moldings including extra high baseboards. These features offer a nod to the home's historic roots and juxtaposed with modern decor and finishes. The gourmet chef's kitchen boasts walls of Boffi white lacquered cabinetry, an impressive 11 ft. long island/breakfast bar with 2" thick quartz cantilevered countertops and integrated top-of-the-line appliances - Miele oven, microwave/convection, Miele espresso machine, and SubZero refrigerator with separate freezer. Full height windows face a lush, private 20' x 20' backyard garden, easily accessed from kitchen or lower level. The garden and rooftop deck- with views of the Lake- are idyllic city escapes in the comfort of your home! The 2nd floor is a gracious primary suite including a library/office with large bay windows and ornate fireplace, enormous primary bedroom with ensuite double door 8' x 14' boudoir/walk-in closet and luxe primary bath. Enjoy a cozy lower level with high ceilings, radiant heated floors, a full second kitchen including a Miele microwave and convection oven, and SubZero refrigerator, ice maker, and wine refrigerator. Other amenities include multiple storage closets, mudroom area, laundry room, an ensuite 5th bedroom and an additional bathroom with a steam shower. This prime Gold Coast location is steps to the Lakefront, shopping on Rush and State Streets and Michigan Avenue, and top restaurants.
