Property Description

Masterfully designed by the esteemed Michael Sparks and custom-built by Dave Knecht Homes, this estate is a contemporary vision of luxury you need to experience. The captivating exterior blends cedar, stone, and steel to create a striking and warm facade. The front door is a literal work of art, privately commissioned by renown artist Gordon Huether. Inside, a dramatic floating staircase becomes the focal point poignantly capturing the flood of light through a three-story corner window, adding new meaning to 'open floorplan'. The 2020 Harris O'Brien bespoke kitchen is an epicurean dream, with sleek cabinetry, custom millwork, and a gourmet wish list of upgrades and lux appliances. The stunning space opens right up to an extravagant outdoor kitchen and porch, with commercial heaters in the ceiling for the ultimate 4 seasons dining and entertaining. Your choice of stairs or elevator span the home and lead you to your luxurious primary, with dual walk-in closets, radiant floors in the luxurious ensuite. Three additional rooms outfitted with their own ensuites and walk-in closets complete the second-floor gallery. The third level offers unparalleled views from an in-law/nanny suite/mancave/she-shed. Along with one of the numerous roof-top decks overlooking the mature trees and exquisite landscaping. The enviable, radiant-heated lower level extends the 'wow' factors, with a temperate-controlled wine cellar, full spa with a steam room next to the home gym, and elevated recreation with a 1/2 basketball court and rock-climbing wall. A multi-zoned geothermal heat pump is one of this home's many energy-efficient features. Situated steps from the Prairie Path in a premier south Elmhurst location, this chic, one-of-a-kind residence represents the epitome of modern luxury living.
