Built in 2004 and completely and tastefully renovated with the highest level of today's finishes in 2017, this architectural gem is situated on the former Ryerson estate. The approach down the private gated drive is through an avenue of pear trees. The symmetry, massive chimneys, slate roof and stateliness of the house are gradually revealed as you proceed to the circular courtyard. A grand foyer greets you, the staircase with new custom metal railing curves up the open two-story space and winds along the second floor hallway. To the right are formal living and dining rooms. Each have large windows, custom built-ins, cabinetry and shelving, fireplaces and fabulous chandeliers. Separating the dining room from the kitchen is a butler's pantry. The kitchen is an unrivaled marvel. It has an eat-in area large enough for casual dinner parties with room to accommodate a large buffet to serve from and overlooks the original fountain and balustrade from the Ryerson estate. A custom built-in cupboard holds your fine glassware. The large work area is graced by a reclaimed adler island topped with a leathered quartzite slab. Wolf cook top with interchangeable components and a pot filler makes food prep a breeze, in addition to the Wolf double ovens, microwave and warming drawer. A large, walk-in pantry handles your storage needs. A metal farmhouse sink with a textured pastural scene on the front is flanked by a dishwasher on each side. As you enter the kitchen area from your heated three-car attached garage there is a mudroom area and a full-size laundry room, complete with marble. To the left of the foyer are less formal areas including a large office overlooking the driveway.With built-in cabinetry, glass shelving and a fireplace with a gorgeous beam mantle, ceiling highlighted with custom Venetian finish and box beams, the office is a light, bright and private sanctuary. The wood beam mantel and chandelier will knock your socks off! A powder room is conveniently located nearby. The family room accesses the bluestone terrace through large French doors. The view includes the outdoor gas fireplace, a new fountain and the original tea house from the Ryerson estate, which has been meticulously restored. There is also a fireplace in the family room. The back stair to the second floor is located off the kitchen, as is a second powder room. The second floor landing overlooks the allee of trees in the driveway. Light floods the long hall way that separates the master wing from the family bedrooms. This master suite is private and unparalleled. The room is significantly large and holds a separate seating area comfortably. There is a fireplace and three walk-in closets. A screened porch overlooks the serene grounds, truly a delight with your morning coffee! The master bathroom has a large steam shower, soaking tub, and custom vanities. In addition to the master are four ensuite bedrooms. One is currently used as a work- out space. A pretty and light-filled back stair leads to the kitchen area where there is a second full-size laundry room, and continues to the lower level, which is its own delight. An enormous 6th bedroom and bath are found here. There is a large rec-room with fireplace, a large game room with a pool table, a cedar walk-in room. and a fabulous wine room that holds 500+ bottles, with glass walls which not only showcase your wine collection but also beautiful Chicago brick walls. The property has an ethereal feel. The fenced yard, lush landscaping, and notable features of the tea house, whose gazebos, urns and balustrade from the Ryerson estate, foster a feeling of complete serenity, privacy and security. It is rare in any market to find a newer estate with every amenity in a great location, impeccable condition and tastefully decorated. Havenwood is a newer home with an old soul!!
