Lake Bluff

This stunning 10+ acre vintage estate property is truly a private retreat, featuring a Har-Tru clay tennis court, in-ground 60’x25’ swimming pool, separate pool/guest house, and putting green. The brick Mediterranean Villa with a Ludowici clay tile roof embodies classic elegance throughout. Designed by highly regarded estate architect Russell Walcott in 1930, the exterior detailing creates an unforgettable introduction to the property with a gated entry and a circular brick paver driveway centering on an inviting fountain.

Designed to provide exceptional property views from every room, the floor plan works well for both living and entertaining with spacious rooms, beautiful hardwood flooring, fine millwork, tall ceilings, and classic detailing throughout. The foyer opens to a large gallery and is also flanked by en-suite guest quarters. Centrally located, the gallery provides access to the library, living and dining rooms. The rich paneled library has built-in bookcases, fireplace with a stately stone mantle, and three sets of French doors.

The warm, gracious living room allows for intimate gatherings around the fireplace and has additional space for entertaining. The sun room has four sets of large French doors, providing sundrenched views of the stunning property vistas to the west and of the tennis court on the south. The dining room focal point is the oversized fireplace that is complemented by a cove ceiling and French doors that lead to a backyard patio for al fresco dining. The kitchen and breakfast rooms were renovated by Jeff Lynch.

The incredible master suite features a marble fireplace and separate his and hers bathrooms and dressing areas, one with a fireplace. The upstairs also includes two large en-suite bedrooms, two additional bedrooms with a fifth full bathroom, large storage room, and a third floor treetop study. A breezeway leads to the separate pool/guest house, complete with a kitchen, two changing rooms/bathrooms, fireplace, and private patio. Additional property amenities include two in-ground sprinkler systems (one golf course grade), three garages (one that is heated and air conditioned with a lift for projects), dog kennel, and partially finished lower level with a recreation room, powder bathroom, and a safe.
