The beach beckons year round as this recently renovated estate by notable architect Healy Rice is just one house off Lake Michigan. The 7-bedroom, 5-bathroom property stands on more than half an acre of exquisitely landscaped grounds. The tone for the entire house is set as soon as you step past the glass-paneled French doors into the elegant foyer. Marble flooring, wide cased openings, and elegant wainscoting welcome all who enter. The circular floor plan is perfect for entertaining and large windows in each room embrace the outdoor gardens. A sweeping staircase leads to the second-floor landing and into the master suite with vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace surrounded by custom bookcases, and a private sundeck with breathtaking lake views. An additional full level of living can be found on the third floor including a lounging and study area, newly added full bathroom, and an oversized bedroom ideal for a playroom or guest getaway suite. There are flawless views of Lake Michigan from every rear window, perfectly on par with the rest of the home. At the heart of the home, is a stunning white chef ’s kitchen and breakfast room. The gourmet kitchen boasts a marble island, top-of-the-line appliances, and access to the mudroom with a second powder room. The separate breakfast area with French doors leads out to bluestone patios, a pool, and a spa all overlooking the estate’s lush, private backyard. This showstopper is more than just a home; it’s a quintessential east Winnetka family destination … that could be yours.
