Where luxury meets functionality. Welcome home! This one-of-a-kind Oak Park residence is located in the heart of The Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District. Nearly 30 residences and buildings make up his masterpiece portfolio, including his own home and studio in the ever so loved community of Oak Park. 617 N Kenilworth was meticulously gut rehabbed in 2008. Three stories of new construction comprise an addition that was completed at the same time. There are a total of five bedrooms and four full and two half bathrooms that embody this picture-perfect property. The original structure blends seamlessly into the new construction. Pristine quarter sawn white oak flooring throughout is just the beginning. Natural sunlight drenches this envious floorplan thanks to endless "walls of windows." All staircases, handrails, balustrades, and posts have been precisely crafted. From the charming front porch to the welcoming foyer, you instantaneously feel a sense of hospitality. It has two primary suite options. One is currently being used as a penthouse office suite. The first floor is comprised of a charming living room, a striking open concept dining room and Chef's kitchen greet you. From high end appliances to luxury custom-made countertops and tiles, marble and granite per Ann Sacks, you are ready to effortlessly entertain friends and family. The first floor also boasts a gorgeous sunken family room which can harmoniously be accessed right off the kitchen. This intimate space encompasses a gas-ignite wood burning fireplace and a bank of floor-to-ceiling West facing windows with unobstructed views of the patio for a sensational sunset experience. Explore the second floor by proceeding up the winding staircase off the family room or take the second gorgeous staircase off of the entryway. This floor boasts the same pristine quarter sawn white oak flooring throughout. Revel in four idyllic sized bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a second enticing laundry room. The primary bedroom showcases one of three fireplaces in its intimate sitting area. The third floor is currently being used as a third family gathering space equipped with fireplace, office, and full bathroom. Rich and cozy Ralph Lauren carpet throughout the third floor. This space could also be used as a second option as a penthouse primary suite. The vaulted ceilings and the designer bank of West facing windows (with sky lights) gives an unmatched airy feel. High-end Sonos/Sonance sound system through-out the home is a nice bonus. The addition also includes another large family room in the lower level which has 10' ceilings.
