Inspired by Prairie School Architecture, this total renovation is true to its Midwest style. Quality, detailed craftsmanship and views of nature from every room are prevalent throughout. The expansive brick and stucco home sits on a .45 acre parcel with large fenced yard, outdoor stone fireplace, fire pit, paver walkways, patio and driveway. Enter to find an impressive blend of natural wood; African mahogany and quarter sawn oak are used in the custom flooring and trim. There are gorgeous Pella windows and doors, some with custom stained glass. The Birger Juell library is a dream workspace with custom paneling and cabinetry, gas fireplace and large document storage closet. The sunny chef's kitchen has light birch cabinetry, maple hardwood flooring, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, an island and plenty of room for informal dining. Enjoy the built-in bar with glass front cabinet doors, wine refrigerator and planning desk. There are so many options for family fun, relaxation and entertaining! The airy living room with fireplace opens to the separate dining room; both rooms have wonderful natural light. The spacious den with wood burning fireplace opens to a huge family room with tray ceiling and rows of windows on three sides. The basement boasts a home theater, rec room with full masonry fireplace, wet bar, exercise room, full bath with steam shower, laundry room and large wine cellar/cedar closet. The seamless quality continues through all bedrooms. There is a private 1st floor guest/in-law/nanny suite with a travertine marble bathroom and walk-in closet. The 2nd floor has three additional bedrooms including a luxurious master suite with spa bath and fabulous walk-in closet! Two bedrooms share a Jack/Jill bathroom. The heated garage has African mahogany doors and an easy-to-clean epoxy floor. This beautiful location along Waveland Road is near Waveland Park, Cherokee Elementary School and the Metra train. Style, quality and convenience...it's all here!
