Bel Air meets the North Shore with this masterpiece by Richard Landry—the world-renowned architect behind some of the most notable celebrity homes from Malibu to Laguna.
Set on more than two acres of landscaped grounds, this stately six-bedroom Winnetka home seamlessly blends the work of Mick De Giulio, Miami-based Howard Design Group, John Kny Interiors, Radiance Lighting, and Scott Byron.
“There is nothing in the Midwest built like 68 Locust. It’s the best of the best in both design and execution,” says @properties broker Jena Radnay, the listing agent for the property.
The stunning two-story foyer with a Tiffany-stained glass dome and double grand staircase provides a jaw-dropping introduction to the home. Ideal for entertaining, the main level also boasts a De Giulio kitchen and a butler’s pantry that leads to a full catering kitchen.
Stepping off the elevator on the second floor, you’ll find the ultra-luxe master suite with his and her walk-in closets, a spa-like master bath, and a balcony overlooking the rear gardens. After a long (or not so long) day, escape to your very own restaurant-quality bar, unwind in the spa, or on a sunny summer day soak up some rays by the outdoor pool with waterfall.
Radnay explains, “68 Locust is a house that is all about being a destination. Between the spa, gym, theater room, and wine tasting area with bar, it’s the ultimate place for entertaining.”
Details throughout the home include limestone flooring and fireplaces, gold iron chandeliers, and custom-designed windows and doors imported from Italy. Other luxurious features include garage parking for up to 10 cars, a heated driveway, and a state-of-the-art security system.
“This is an incredible opportunity for those who appreciate excellence and truly understand quality construction. Hands down, there is no house on the market that delivers under $10 million like 68 Locust,” notes Radnay.
