This is what you wait for.... this is the perfect house to leave the city for! 785 Walden was built by renowned North Shore architect Doug Reynolds in 2007 and no detail was spared! The winner of the 2009 Winnetka Preservation Award for Best New Construction, the 5 bedroom, 5 1/2 bathroom home was designed with exceptional detail, that brand new construction can't compare with! Every inch of the 6,120-total square foot home was beautifully designed by Jeannie Balsam, an acclaimed interior designer. Her attention to detail does not go unnoticed, it has all the bells and whistles! The home opens to a striking foyer and stunning living room with large bay windows that allow in tons of natural light. Leading through the home is a study with custom-crafted Alder wood built-ins and paneling, spacious dining room with Rose Cummings fabric-covered walls and window treatments, coastal beamed ceiling family room, and kitchen that has granite countertops, top-notch appliances, including Subzero Fridge/Freezer with 4 additional refrigerator/beverage drawers, Wolfe range, and Miele dishwasher. An impressive butler's pantry with wet bar, additional Miele dishwasher, and Scotsman icemaker adjoins the kitchen and dining room. Don't forget about the much-needed mudroom with stone floors and custom hand-built cubbies for tons of storage, and a bonus laundry chute. The second floor includes laundry, three bedrooms, all with ample closet space, two baths and a Master Suite with a large walk-in closet, spa bath, radiant flooring, huge walk-in Roma Steam shower, double vanity sinks and a bonus private office/sitting room with amazing custom cabinetry! The sunny and spacious 3rd floor with a full bath & bedroom and huge bonus space is perfect for an office or playroom. The awesome lower level is great for entertaining and or for kids. Complete with 10 ft ceilings and oversized limestone window wells this level offers a huge recreation room, wine room with gorgeous slate tile floors, a Subzero refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave, 800 bottle wine cellar, and beautiful hammered copper bar sink. In addition, another large laundry room with sink and custom built-ins, mirrored workout room & full bath with Roma steam shower. The wide driveway leads to a professionally landscaped backyard with mature greenery. The large bluestone patio with fireplace makes the backyard a fun gathering spot, complete with professional outdoor lighting, in-ground sprinkler system, and SONOS speakers (both inside/outside). And for someone with a green thumb, there is a gardening shed and potting table area right next to the garage. The two-car garage was built with custom cabinets and hanging racks for all your outdoor gear. It's clear this home has an amazing, warm feel and is a home run in every way as it checks all boxes! A+ location with a 5-minute walk to train, town, and newly designed park, so city buyers, you aren't giving up a thing!
