An architecturally significant and one-of-a-kind home perfectly positioned adjacent to two city parks on a premier East Lincoln Park block. The custom-built 8,700 SQ. FT. property was designed by award-winning architect Dirk Lohan, grandson and understudy of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. His creation harmoniously blends contemporary style and materials with the residential character of the neighborhood. One of the most iconic features is a 4-story Miesian floating staircase, which beautifully compliments the terra-cotta cladded exterior and the glass and stone facade.The home's main floor is unique with an entrance at ground level, opening to soaring ceilings and an expansive foyer featuring travertine marble. The main living space is at once elegant and intimate, accommodating indoor-outdoor living, with two sets of sliding glass doors off the living room and family room/kitchen. The dining room features mahogany paneled walls, cabinets and doors and a gas dual fireplace connecting the living room. A large island centers the kitchen, surrounded by commercial-grade stainless steel appliances, an abundance of cabinetry, and direct access to the patio for al fresco dining. A spacious butler's pantry between the kitchen and dining room makes for easy entertaining. The 2nd floor of the home features the first of two great rooms, dividing the floor between the primary suite and two jack and jill bedrooms with a shared bathroom and laundry room. The personal oasis in the primary suite features an expansive walk-in closet with a dressing room, luxurious bathroom with carrera marble, heated floors, towel warmer, whirlpool tub and separate steam shower. The 3rd level consists of a 2nd great room, separating a complete Au-pair suite from a gracious office with wood burning fireplace and custom built-ins, alongside a personal gym. The upper level features a kitchenette and an enormous 1100 SQ,FT. roof deck with Trex Transcend decking. House utilities include 2 commercial grade sump pumps, 2 new 50-gallon water heaters, a water pressure booster, a 4-story elevator, and 6 separate HVAC units. The entire home features Lutron lighting controls, Bega lighting, Hans Grohe fixtures, surround sound for both indoor and outdoor spaces, hardwired smoke alarms, 6 heating and cooling zones (east and west wings on each floor), a garden sprinkler system, and Keyth security system for both home and garage. The 4-car heated garage also has its own water supply and utility sink. While the design and details of this home are impeccable, it is the rare ability to be both contemporary and warm that makes it such a unique, must-see property. Mere blocks to the zoo, lake, restaurants, shopping and multiple parks.
