Wonder of wonders. Rarely available three lot property (75' by 124)' in the heart of East Lincoln Park on prime Orchard Street. Incredible limestone home with stunning recently redone (2020) one-of-a-kind additions to the home and grounds. The home is an extraordinary property with a large and gracious floorplan oriented to take advantage of the lush south side yard. Nature is seamlessly integrated into the plan. The home has a grand center entrance. The formal living room and dining room flank the foyer. A soaring three-story staircase atrium with giant picture windows floods the home with light. The casual living space is remarkable. The kitchen is a cook's delight with two islands, eat in area, top of the line appliances, two dishwashers, butler's pantry, walk in pantry, three full sized refrigerators, six freezer drawers and wine/ beverage fridges. Huge adjacent family room leads to the outdoor kitchen, the wonderful decks and the magnificent yard. Also on this level; an office, mud room, two powder rooms, pet/kids' shower, thoughtful storage and an attached three car heated garage with roof deck on top. Property also has an additional detached two car garage for total of five parking spaces. Ascending the grand central staircase to the second level you will find a stunning primary suite and gorgeous bath, three additional bedrooms and large laundry room. The top floor is flexible and can be used in multiple ways. Currently configured with an office (could be additional bedroom), full bath, second kitchen, great sitting room and rec room. Large front and back decks with wonderful views wrap the house. The lower level offers a large great room, mirrored exercise space, two bedrooms, two baths, second laundry room, wine room, abundant storage and radiant heat. The outdoor space is truly one of the most unique and distinguished features of the home. Designed with privacy, the yard is a quiet oasis hidden from the street and architecturally integrated into the house. The professionally landscaped side yard, firepit, trellis, outdoor kitchen, decks, patio, sports court and lovely gardens make this space remarkable. No expense was spared with the renovation. The house has been superbly maintained. All new windows and French doors installed in the fall of 2022. Updated systems throughout. Four fireplaces, stunning light fixtures, gorgeous window treatments. Lovely interior design and exquisite landscaping make this such a special home. Steps to all Lincoln Park has to offer. Exclude: LR, DR and central stair chandeliers.
