An architecturally-significant home designed by the prominent and innovative architects, Wheeler Kearns, sits on a landscaped oversized double lot – 50’ x 175’ on a quiet premier street in East Lincoln Park – steps to Lincoln Park, the Lake, public transportation and unlimited stores and restaurants. An impressive set-back entry and large front porch is only the beginning of the vast outdoor space throughout. The classic red brick exterior fits in perfectly with the grandeur of the street, but when you step inside you are in a transformed space. The timeless appeal of this home achieves the balance between sophistication and drama with a floor plan that is ideal for family living as well as for elegant entertaining. The entire rear elevation is a glass box – a dramatic 2-story space of 3 sides of floor-to-ceiling walls of glass that draws the outdoors in by surrounding you with mature trees and greenery in the side and back yards. The 3rd floor terrace, complete with retractable canopies, is yet another location to entertain and enjoy the serene view. Arlington Place is a quiet, one-way street, accessible by car from Orchard Street, creating a peaceful environment.
Fabulous amount of light accompanied with an indoor/outdoor living component makes this home extra special. 2-story open floor plans in piano room and dining room with a plethora of windows to appreciate the scale and scope. Family room and breakfast room has loft-like 2-story wall of glass facing large landscaped backyard! Other features includes a brand new Chef’s kitchen, and huge lower level with recreation room, media room and guest bedroom/bath. Full floor master suite plus 2 offices are on the second level, and 3 oversized bedrooms and a large terrace with canopy awning complete the third level. Perfect for family life and for gracious entertaining. Incredible spa pool house adjacent to the garage has an indoor, heated lap pool, hot tub, and full bathroom, making this home totally unique and enviable. Exercise or relax in this private zen retreat all year long!
