Multi-lot homes in Chicago are rare, but this monumental city estate encompassing five lots on the North Side, singular in both scope and architectural significance, is truly one-of-a-kind. Dubbed Graceland West, this quaint, community-forward neighborhood is a desirable locale for Chicagoans who appreciate the lifestyle perks that come along with being a beat from Lakeview (which includes the first-class shopping and restaurants along Southport Corridor), Ravenswood, and Andersonville. Situated on an enviable 100 x 161-foot private parcel with artfully appointed land- and hardscaping details, this spectacularly modern 6 bedroom/8 bath home gives grand curb appeal courtesy of an Italianate-style facade (think a column-flanked portico, prominent peaks and a slate roof). Inside, the bespoke nature of this five-story, five-year design and build is evident from moment one, starting with a handsome foyer that teases the home's flawless millwork and blonde hardwood floors throughout-and a floor plan that was customized for discerning homeowners. Standout main floor living spaces include formal living and dining rooms, and a kitchen-adjacent great room that flaunts a wood-burning fireplace and custom floor-to-ceiling, steel-framed windows/doors by renowned firm Hope's that open onto an expansive side yard and patio. (This home boasts three outdoor blue stone patios. The first is linked to the kitchen and features a wood-burning fireplace and a Kalamazoo outdoor gourmet kitchen; the second and third find definition from a second outdoor fireplace and a lounge with outdoor TV.) Back inside the interior kitchen, the heart of the home, family meals and refined entertaining are elevated by endless custom cabinetry, a beautiful built-in dining banquette, and a massive stone-topped island that seats six. Upstairs, the home's private quarters seamlessly unfold, including an extra-large primary bedroom with high ceilings, beaucoup natural light, a pair of custom closets including a bonus shoe closet, and a chic ensuite with dual vanities, designer light fixtures, a giant glass shower and a freestanding soaking tub. Additional callout amenities include a heated underground garage (4 cars), two standalone side garages (3 additional cars), heated walkways, two mudrooms with radiant-heat floors and surplus storage, a climate-controlled wine cellar, three laundry rooms, a big lower level with recreation room and home gym, a top-floor flex space with cathedral ceiling that's perfect for a WFH office and/or bonus family room, plus side and back yards including a professional sports court. For matriculation-prioritizing families, the Sacred Heart bus pickup is steps away, and the German International School is within walking distance. Lycee Francais, Anshe Emet Day and Rogers Park Montessori are all moments away by car.
