About 1336 North State Parkway
Historic elegance and modern sophistication are the hallmarks of this meticulously updated and immaculately maintained 9,000-square-foot designer home. Perfectly positioned in the heart of the Gold Coast, this landmark residence was originally built in 1899-and is a picturesque example of Chicago's Beaux Arts architecture. Inside, this 5 bed/9 bath (5 full, 4 partial) home is flooded with natural light at every turn, and flaunts remastered Old World details like arched window casings, ornate plasterwork, opulent fireplace mantles and cathedral ceilings. Designed by Gail Plechaty and featured on the cover of Traditional Home magazine, the fixtures and finishes throughout are flawless-think gilded sconces and chandeliers, custom millwork and drapery, marble countertops and exquisitely detailed hardwood floors. From the grand reception hall to the formal living, dining and sitting rooms, the home is exquisitely laid out for elevated entertaining, including a gourmet chef's kitchen with marble countertops, custom cabinetry, a professional grade appliances suite and an eat-in dining space. A symphony of soft tones, the refined decorum continues across the home's private quarters, including a stately primary suite on the third level with treetop views, a wood-burning fireplace, walk-in closets and a stunning en suite with dual vanity, Waterworks fittings, an oversize shower, and a Calacatta Supreme marble-encased soaking tub. The multilevel footprint also includes a handsome study, an office, a comfortable family room, a media room/home theater, a billiards room, a gym, an elevator and a two-car heated garage, not to mention three private outdoor spaces: a fabulous rooftop deck and a kitchen-adjacent terrace that leads to a second deck above the garage, all of which are landscaped to perfection with hydrangeas, boxwoods and more. Full of history and timeless charm mere blocks from the lake with the best of Chicago right outside your front door, 1336 N. State Parkway is turnkey luxury in a class of its own.
