This true one-of-a-kind masterpiece is luxury on a whole new level. The remarkable 1622 Forest Place is a meticulously-revitalized grand estate, perfectly located on the shores of Lake Michigan, and just 17 minutes north of downtown Chicago. This distinguished 6-bedroom home offers unparalleled luxury and modern amenities throughout, vintage integrity and charm, and breathtaking lake views at every turn. And sits on over half an acre with lush gardens, charming walkways, grand bluestone terraces, and a stunning 2-bedroom/2.5 bath luxury coach house over a 6-car heated garage with two electric car charging stations. It doesn't get any better than this! The lakefront estate was originally built as a Queen Anne Victorian mansion in 1883 before being reimagined as a Tudor home by Mayo and Mayo in 1910. The recent transformation, completed in 2016, masterfully revitalized and restored original details such as windows, moldings, and mantles. And incorporated modern amenities like geothermal heating, a 4-story elevator, a top-notch chef's kitchen, spa bathrooms with heated floors, etc. The result is a 6-bedroom, 6 full- and 5 half- bath manor with beautifully-proportioned, light-filled rooms and elegant sophistication and exquisite finishes at every turn. As you enter the residence, the stately foyer sets the tone, as the sprawling grand staircase and richly-detailed millwork can take your breath away. The spacious living room is like no other, warmed by a limestone fireplace and lined with windows and french doors that offer breathtaking views of the lake. The adjacent sun room enjoys a front row seat to the ever-changing scenes of the lake. The handsomely-paneled office has a grand limestone fireplace and custom built-in shelving. In the dining room, you'll find an amazing original fresco, surrounding a stunning crystal chandelier. The state-of-the-art kitchen includes loads of custom cabinetry, high-end stainless steel appliances, and a huge stone island with seating. The kitchen opens onto the breakfast room, with its own cozy fireplace and lined in French doors that open onto the rear bluestone terrace. As you ascend the main staircase, you find the library with its paneled bookshelves, leaded-glass windows, and a hearty fireplace. An expansive second floor landing offers the convenience of a full built-in beverage center outside the five luxurious bedroom suites. Each bedroom has a private, spa-worthy bath with heated floors, in-mirror tvs, and intricate marble tilework. The primary suite overlooks the park and lake and has a separate private sitting room. Four of the bedroom suites have their own private fireplace. One suite has a private terrace overlooking the back gardens. The third level offers a spacious one-bedroom apartment complete with a full kitchen, office, living room, and a private rooftop deck. The lower level offers a myriad of recreational pursuits including a billiard room with a wet bar, media room, spa/massage room with his and hers baths, and an exercise room, and walks out to the charming gardens. Located in Evanston's iconic Lakeshore Historic District, and steps from Northwestern University and downtown Evanston's world-class dining, shopping, entertainment, 1622 Forest Place is one of the North Shore's most significant properties and must be experienced in person.
