Turn-of-the-century Chicago architecture, estate-like living in the Gold Coast, an abundance of modern amenities, and a designer outdoor footprint... you can have it all. Located on one of Chicago's most prestigious streets, this 8600 square-foot, 6 bed/8 bath (6 full, 2 powder rooms) single family home seamlessly integrates Gilded Age charm and contemporary design. A brick and limestone exterior with professional landscaping give this home a stately curb appeal, welcoming guests into a foyer that sets a decidedly elegant tone for entertaining and everyday living. The main level features hardwood floors and detailed millwork throughout, including a grand living room with fireplace, a handsome study with a second fireplace, a gorgeous, all-white dining room with French doors that open onto a manicured side courtyard with a water fountain, and a polished family room for relaxed gatherings. The chef's kitchen features custom cabinetry, quartzite countertops, state-of-the-art Miele/Sub-Zero/Bosch appliances, a breakfast nook, a walk-in pantry, and a butler's pantry with an ice maker and a bonus dishwasher. Better still, the main level connects to a 600 square-foot back deck with an ivy-covered pergola and an outdoor kitchen with a built-in kitchen. Upstairs, the second level is entirely devoted to this home's spectacular primary suite which features a spacious bedroom with fireplace, marble ensuite baths, two custom walk-in closets, a private office, and a chicly appointed sitting room with access to an enclosed balcony. The third level presents four secondary bedrooms and three full baths, all expertly designed to be in keeping with the home's classic character, and a laundry room. But there's more... This home's fully finished basement level boasts a theater room with wet bar, a game room, a wine cellar, a guest bedroom with ensuite, a spa with massage room and stream shower, a second laundry, and direct access to an attached heated two-car garage. Additional callout details include front and back staircases, designer lighting, wallcoverings and drapery throughout, whole house gas generator, and Savant home automation system. Walking distance to Lincoln Park, the lakefront and world-class shopping and dining along the Mag Mile, 1451 N. Astor is the definition of Gold Coast luxury.
