The Journey of Discovery. This contemporary masterpiece was built as a lasting homage to Frank Lloyd Wright with the finest construction and innovative design in the sought-after North Terrace neighborhood of Lake Bluff. Designed by an architect for her own family and built using premium Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) construction, the Prairie-style residence has never been on the market before. A foyer introduces three levels - beginning with the light-filled main living spaces, including a family room (complete with a Finnish soapstone fireplace and pizza oven) that flows easily to a formal dining room, kitchen and living area, all while overlooking the verdant wooded backyard. Anchored by a center island, the kitchen is an ode to warmth and craftsmanship with a Cherry kitchen with Hampshirite custom cabinetry, 36" cooktop with griddle, 42" hood, warming drawer, new ovens, and a newer dishwasher. A flexible 4th bedroom/den on the main floor, located across from a full bathroom, could also double as a home office space. Completing the main level: a large mudroom, laundry room and access to the attached two-car garage. Three bedrooms and two full bathrooms reside on the second floor, including a gracious primary suite with treetop views, a large walk-in closet and private bathroom. Pine stairs lead you down to the finished basement. A custom concrete floor treatment gives the space a unique ambiance as soaring ceilings and an egress window give the large open rec space a sense of volume and rare light. Pre-plumbed for a wet bar and ready for radiant heat flooring, this entire space inspires the imagination. Also on this lower level: a full bath, storage and an extra room that could be a guest suite or gym. Built to be extremely energy-efficient with excellent soundproofing, the residence is teeming with thoughtful features, space-maximizing elements and technology upgrades. Multiple sets of French doors open to step-down terraces and lead you outdoors to a large tiered back patio clad in sandstone, where a cedar pergola and fire pit await, surrounded by professional landscaping and towering greenery. A close-to-everything location puts downtown Lake Bluff, the Lake Bluff Metra Train Station, bike path, rec center, pool, and schools just minutes from your door. Commute easily to work or any points of interest along the Metra route, like attending concerts at Ravinia Festival in Highland Park!
