Set on over half an acre in East Kenilworth, 240 Woodstock, originally designed by world-renowned architect George Maher, was completely renovated, expanded, & transformed to perfection with the highest level of finishes while preserving the historically significant exterior architectural details, including the original art glass surrounding the front entry door & windows. This revitalization & extensive expansion includes a pool, spa, sport court & approximately 12,000 square feet of living space. This 6 bedroom, 10 bath home seamlessly blends the formal & casual gathering places along w/breathtaking garden & pool views w/ an indoor-outdoor flow from nearly every room. The foyer, framed with wainscoting, welcomes you into the formal living room, dining room with fireplace, butler's pantry, & gallery. The foyer & gallery flow into the main living areas & the private office/library. The heart of the home is the top-of-the-line kitchen with an expansive island, designer wood cabinets, marble countertops & Wolf, Sub Zero, & Miele appliances. This exceptional space includes a bright & spacious eat-in area, coffee bar, walk-in pantry, and transitions into the spectacular sun-filled family roof w/ fireplace & floor-to-ceiling mantle & custom woodwork, as well as access to the many outdoor living spaces. The mudroom directly off the 3-car heated garage has built-in cabinetry & leads to a tucked-away office/in-law suite w/full bathroom & large bluestone terrace that overlooks the southern gardens. The 2nd floor, accessed from the front or rear stairs, includes a luxurious master suite that would rival any 5-star hotel with a spa-like bathroom, steam shower with natural stone benches, a soaking tub, fireplace, walk-in closet with off-season room, private terrace, and a spacious, versatile bonus room. 3 additional bedroom suites are located on the second floor - one w/ a private bluestone terrace overlooking the pool and grounds. All bathrooms on the 2nd level have heated floors & natural stone finishes, including natural stone baseboards & door casings. Finishing out this level is a laundry room with a double washer/dryer, cabinets, & large Franke stainless steel sink. The 3rd floor is bright and roomy and includes a spacious family room with a game nook, 2 bedrooms, and a full bath. The sun-filled, rear open staircase leads to the show stopper of this extraordinary home -- the lower level family room with 14' foot ceilings, fireplace with floor-to-ceiling custom mantle and woodwork, a magnificent wine room with viewing windows and ladder, full-service bar with brass footrest, custom built-in cabinetry, Perlick under-counter refrigerators, kegerator with dual beer taps, Scotsman icemaker, dishwasher, & custom club-like banquette seating area, along with a spacious exercise room, changing room for pool guests, & perfectly positioned areas for a pool table, games table, and darts throwing. From the jaw-dropping lower level, the next surprise is a wall of windows overlooking the full sports court allowing guests to interact between both levels. The sports court level also includes a sports storage area & half bath. The superior detail of this exceptional home continues throughout the outdoor living spaces with 6 raised bluestone terraces & 3 expansive grade level terraces, year-round heated swimming pool, spa, heated terraces and walkways, cabana, outdoor shower and bathroom, and magnificent professionally landscaped grounds. This 3-year addition/renovation was completed in 2017, keeping this exquisite, architecturally significant home alive, while incorporating the comforts of a new custom home & maximizing natural light with the placement & design of the home & pool. All mechanicals (electrical, HVAC, gas, and plumbing) from the street & in the home are new, as are all windows, doors & finishes. 240 Woodstock is an ultra-private oasis in the most walkable Kenilworth location, steps to New Trier, Sears School, lake, shopping & dining.
