This ranch style contemporary French home, boasting one of Winnetka's most prestigious addresses, is a one of a kind work of art! Designed by Norman Yeretsky and built in 1974, this 7000+ square foot home is situated on 1.18 acres facing the 12th green of Indian Hill Country Club. The sun-drenched foyer/gallery with terrazzo floors and a wall of windows overlooking the pool leads to a dramatic living room with impressive 14' beamed ceilings, ornamental moldings, hardwood floors, an antique French marble mantle over the gas log fireplace and truly stunning views of the golf course. The living room leads to a huge step-down garden/dining room with high vaulted ceilings, a skylight, exposed brick and terrazzo floors. The fully equipped kitchen has an eat-in area and tons of cabinets plus an oversized walk-in pantry. Off the dining room is a small, intimate gathering space and a tiled wet bar with sub-zero ice maker and built-in wine refrigerator. The den between the bar area and the family room lends itself to a number of uses, including in-home office, at-home learning, playroom or casual sitting room. The enormous family room overlooks the pool and backyard. A fourth bedroom, in this wing, has a private exterior entrance and a full, updated bathroom. While currently used as a game room, it was originally a two-room suite designed for live-in's and could easily be converted back to this configuration making it great for multi-generational living, a home office, or you name it. The other three bedrooms are on the opposite side of the home. Enter the main bedroom wing through beautiful French architectural doors just off the foyer. First, pass the black and white granite powder room with architectural detailing. The primary bedroom suite is a giant octagonal bedroom with an antique marble mantle over a gas logged fireplace and is flanked by two separate private spaces. One side includes a study/dressing room with floor to ceiling shelves, a walk-in closet, built-ins and a private bathroom. The other side has a lovely sitting room/dressing room, built-in window seats, a walk-in closet, floor to ceiling shelves and drawers, a built-in dressing table, a marble bathtub, and a walk-in shower. Two more generous bedrooms are down the hall as well as a shared bath and access to the pool area. The backyard includes a massive blue patio for social gatherings as well as a pool with a diving board and a slide. The home has a three-car attached and heated garage complete with extra cabinet storage. The paver driveway has plenty of parking for guests. This home is in Harper Elementary and award-winning Wilmette District 39. This home is perfect for so many buyers and is like living in a resort every day.
