Property Description

Two adjacent properties totaling 1.25 acres in premier location! An unparalleled lifestyle can be enjoyed in this gracious estate home in East Kenilworth, which embraces stately design with refined grandeur. Sophisticated, classic, timeless-the perfect balance between casual elegance and ultimate luxury are exemplified in this superb historic estate. Originally designed in 1906 by renowned architect George Maher, this architecturally significant home with high-end craftsmanship has all the charm of yesteryear with the modern conveniences of present day. Situated on one of the most coveted streets on the North Shore, this impressive offering is on 1.25 acres (two PINs) with an abundance of large-scale formal and informal spaces. Rich in history, the inviting foyer opens to the expansive living room and dining room, both of which set the tone for gracious entertaining and feature carved marble fireplaces, coffered ceilings, hardwood floors, and leaded windows. The office has idyllic views of the private and expansive yard. The chef's kitchen is located perfectly next to the butler's pantry and breakfast room. The generously sized family room, stunning mudroom, and three-season porch complete the perfect first level floor plan. The primary suite is drenched in sunlight and includes a separate dressing room, walk-in-closet, and large bath. The remaining bedrooms are generously scaled with custom moldings and millwork throughout. Architecturally executed to perfection is the newer 2 bedroom/2 bath coach house with 4 car garage (separate PIN) which completes this magnificent property. Truly an extraordinary offering that will stand the test of time, this home is in an A+ location-close to the lake, award winning-schools, parks, and train.
