353 N Deere Park Drive E, Highland Park, IL
Situated on one of the most desirable locations on the north shore, this private residence was built for resort style living on a rarely found 1.5 acre lakefront setting. Picturesque and breathtaking, the home was designed with large windows to enjoy views of lake Michigan from almost every room. Wooden stairs and a lift offer access to a one-of-a-kind elevated beach. The complete bluff restoration was extensively engineered to prevent erosion and create the protected raised beach. The chef's kitchen blends efficiency and beauty. Exposed brick, two large islands, recessed ceiling, high-end stainless appliances, and uniquely decorative lighting are only some of the features this kitchen enjoys. The graciously sized first floor master suite has a vaulted ceiling, handsome fireplace and large windows that allow for ample natural light and calming lake views. The spa-like bath is truly remarkable with a whirlpool, over-sized steam shower, and granite dual vanities. A 38-foot long indoor lap pool with full bathroom and laundry, six fireplaces, second master suite upstairs, and finished English lower level are among the outstanding features of this stunning home. The grounds were thoughtfully renovated to include a banquet-sized stone terrace, second stone patio with outdoor fireplace, and new landscaping throughout with beautiful perennial gardens and full irrigation system. This estate allows one to live and vacation at home.
