Property Description

As you approach this beautiful estate through the long private drive flanked by acres of open lands, you are greeted with glimpses of the breathtaking Lake Michigan views that lie just beyond this impeccably designed home by Delano and Aldrich along with Stanley Anderson. Set on nearly 5 acres of pristine lakefront land complete with a private accessible beach, this estate has 390 feet of lake frontage to the east, a deep ravine to the south and mature tree lining to the north, for complete privacy. This home features solid concrete construction with Chicago Common brick and stone cladding with steel windows. As you enter, you are greeted by the beautiful rotunda which feeds into the other wings of the first floor, including the impressive great room, with soaring 2 story vaulted ceilings clad with exposed wood beams, and custom millwork throughout. The great room overlooks and has multiple access points to the concrete pool, complete with 2 outdoor changing rooms. Just off the great room is the library with a full wet bar, flanked by the office which also overlooks the pool. The main floor also features an oversized dining room, sitting room, large kitchen with full lake views, family room, en-suite bedroom, multiple powder rooms, and a large mudroom attached to the oversized 4 car garage, added in 2016. But the piece de resistance, is "the party room" just off of the kitchen, which was also built as an addition in 2016, featuring custom deep inlay coffered ceilings clad with custom millwork and stunning panoramic lake views. As you make your way up the winding staircase, one of two, you will find 6 more bedrooms including the primary (5 of which have lake views), two offices, one of which has a very large balcony overlooking the rear yard and lake, and a full laundry room. The third floor offers an additional bonus space with a bedroom, full bath and plenty of storage space. The home also features two attached apartments, complete with full kitchens. The basement, with nearly 5k SF, has plenty of room for storage and extra space to finish if need be. Attached to the 1 Moffett parcel to the west is 0 Cambridge, which includes nearly 2.5 acres of private open lands along the ravine. This land is for sale separately. These two combined parcels provide over 7 acres of absolute privacy. The bluff has been fully reinforced over the years with with concrete and layered vegetation.
