Property Description

The transformation of this stately in-town Georgian residence will exceed all of your expectations. This home has been extensively remodeled, renovated and updated by the current owners. Every detail has been carefully thought out to create a captivating home that has retained many of its original unique features while offering superior craftsmanship and the designer touches and modern amenities to suit today's lifestyle. Situated on an incredible 3/4 acre double lot in the heart of Glen Ellyn, this estate's landscape rivals even the beauty of the gardens at Versailles. The newly revitalized and abundant landscaping, enhanced with stone capped brick walls and privacy fence in the back, is breathtaking! Imagine this relaxing oasis and ideal outdoor entertainment area in your own back yard - there's even room for a pool! Detail to architecture and design is evident on both the interior and the exterior of the home. The handsome, full brick exterior is enhanced by Palladian windows, keystone accents, tile roof, copper gutters and a graceful entrance embellished with columns, blue slate and a new Pella entry door with transom window. Inside you will see detailed woodwork and built-ins; handsome tile, marble, and hardwood floors; French doors; coffered and volume ceilings; and all new plantation shutters throughout. Enjoy a light and bright interior, provided by the many windows, fresh decor and new designer lighting. The newly renovated kitchen boasts new high-end appliances, a new island with gleaming quartz and butcher block counter top, a gas fireplace, and so much more! There's an expansive great room and game room, guest suite with private bath, office/library, and a screen porch overlooking the terrace and expansive back lawn. This home even offers a gymnasium off of the main floor - the ideal space in which to enjoy basketball, volleyball or your own fitness area! The luxurious owner suite boasts 3 walk-in closets, a separate sitting room, French doors to a roof deck, and a completely renovated private bath with Victoria Albert soaking tub and steam shower. The spacious lower level features a rec room, dance/yoga area, and a second kitchen - ideal for entertaining. This home enjoys an incredible location one half mile to the Metra station and convenient to Trader Joe's, I-355, downtown Glen Ellyn shops, popular restaurants, and community events. To appreciate all of the special features that this outstanding property offers, it really needs to be experienced in person!
