516 North Prospect Avenue

Exceptional residence, meticulously designed by a European-trained architect. This Heritage Manor home stands as a masterpiece of timeless elegance within the exclusive confines of a Country Club community. Its exquisitely detailed French Provincial exterior, with honey brown brick and extensive limestone accents, sets it apart while allowing it to seamlessly blend into its surroundings. Renowned designer Mick De Giulio's touch is evident throughout, as he has crafted a living environment that spans nearly 7,000 square feet across three levels. The result is a home that seamlessly combines spacious rooms, exquisite detailing, and the sophisticated charm of classically inspired motifs. As you step inside, you'll be greeted by a two-story foyer crowned with a breathtaking flying bridge walkway, accessible via the grand staircase. Limestone-clad fireplaces, a butler's pantry, and a coffered ceiling library/office with cherry bookshelves provide an air of elegance. The open kitchen, adorned with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, features cathedral ceilings in the family room, while the main floor also boasts a powder room and a convenient laundry/mudroom. Venture to the upper level, where five bedrooms await. The primary suite is a haven of luxury with its expansive bay window, walk-in closet, and a bath adorned with heated limestone floors, travertine marble wall tile, and a classically styled double vanity. Relax in the separate shower or oversized whirlpool tub, a true sanctuary within your own home. The lower level has been thoughtfully designed to flood with natural light. Here, you'll find a spacious workout room, a shower/steam room, and a separate dry sauna. The expansive recreation room is perfect for hosting gatherings, and the walk-in wine cellar adds a touch of sophistication. Step outside and be captivated by the exterior's charm, highlighted by an entry drive and brick paver courtyard that lead to the 8-foot-high arched front door. The rear facade offers visual interest with its breakfast room bay, brick patio, and turreted roofline. Parking is effortless, thanks to a one-car attached garage and a two-car detached garage at the rear, accessible via a side drive. The location is equally impressive, with the Country Club, Uptown area, restaurants, the Historic PickWick Theatre, library, and Metra train all within walking distance. But that's not all - this home boasts a series of upgrades completed between 2022 and 2023 that elevate it to a new level of modern convenience and efficiency. Brand new furnaces, UV and HEPA filtration, humidifiers, tankless water heaters, A/C units, and smart thermostats have been added. The installation of a Vivint Security System provides peace of mind throughout the house. Outside, the front and back yards have been graced with fresh sod, while the backyard now boasts an 8.1 Surround Sound System with a Smart Hub. The basement has been entirely revitalized with brand new carpeting. High-speed internet connections from AT&T Fiber and Xfinity Gigabit ensure you're always connected. Aesthetic updates include repainting half of the rooms and replacing three toilets. A new smart lock graces the side entrance, and a shed has been thoughtfully added to the back of the garage, approved by the city. This home is truly a masterpiece, combining classic elegance with modern convenience. Don't miss the opportunity to make it your own. Welcome to a life of sophistication, comfort, and style.
