Architectural Masterpiece in Highland Park
Designed by noted architectural firm Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro, this sophisticated Highland Park home impresses in every regard. Sited on an elevated 0.636 acre lot behind pristine landscaping and a gated entry with limestone walls, this custom home is extraordinarily built and meticulously designed for those who value quality, style, and luxury.
The entryway offers breathtaking two-story Venetian plaster walls and ceilings, a floating stairway, Lueders limestone floors, and tasteful art lighting. The adjoining study overlooks the lush front lawn and features a lavish, bookmatched marble fireplace. Bright, open, and welcoming, the living room with a coffered ceiling, impressive chandelier, fireplace with marble surround, and Brombal windows and doors, easily provides access to both the kitchen and the screened, temperature-controlled loggia.
The custom Bulthaup kitchen in this home is a marvel, with thoughtful attention to design and function for even the most discerning chef. With a gorgeous, built-in olive wood bar that seats five and a walk-in butler’s pantry, this kitchen is ideal for hosting large parties or intimate family dinners. An abundance of convenient features include: two Sub-Zero refrigerators and four freezer drawers, two dishwashers, double ovens, two warming drawers, two induction microwaves, three sinks, a built-in ice maker, easy-access wine cooler, multiple appliance garages, a built-in Miele coffee maker with a refrigerator drawer below, and two world-renowned Gaggenau induction cooktops. Instead of obtrusive cabinets, the kitchen employs effortless drawers with custom Bulthaup wood inserts for organization and convenience. This designer kitchen also has a well-located walk-in pantry, and a separate storage room for fine china and crystal.
Flanking the sleek kitchen are the formal dining and breakfast rooms. With a cozy fireplace, beautiful built-in shelves, and separate seating area, the breakfast room is perfect for informal gathering. Immediately adjacent is a spectacular wet bar that is highlighted by marvelous bookmatched Onyx countertops and walls, an ice maker, storage drawers, Sub-zero refrigeration, and windows that open as a pass-through to serve the pool, spa, and loggia. Nearby, the custom wine room with smoked acrylic wine racks can accommodate a collection of fine wines. Beyond the wine room is the mudroom with pocket dog gate, the house manager’s office, and access to the oversized two-car garage, motorcourt, and covered carport for two additional vehicles.
An impeccably designed and luxurious master bedroom is tucked away on the first floor with large glass windows and a seating area that overlooks the sparkling pool and backyard. The lavish bathroom showcases custom his-and-her vanities with exquisite finishes, soaking tub, seamless glass shower, and a separate third vanity with seating nook. The expansive his-and-her closets offer custom built cabinetry and lighting to store and brightly display all of the fashion that lives inside.
The immaculate quality and precise execution of construction continues on the second level. The large ensuite bedrooms with amazing windows, vaulted ceilings, and Venetian plaster walls, include walk-in closets and additional study areas. The spacious and versatile game room is perfect for watching movies, playing games, or simply lounging around inside or relaxing on the adjoining terrace. Also located upstairs are; a generous laundry room that features custom cabinets, a folding island, and enough space for four appliances, a gym complete with a custom built sauna, steam shower, and spa bath, as well as an extensive craft and gift wrapping room with an abundance of storage.
One of Highland Park’s most intricate homes to-date and absolutely stunning by every standard, this incredible home truly stands above the rest by utilizing the highest caliber materials, a remarkable attention to detail, and the finest world-class craftsmanship, establishing this home as a timeless, architectural masterpiece.
