"A monochromatic layer cake spiked with surprise," this glamorously refashioned storybook manor is anything but what it appears from the outside. A sweeping circular drive and castle-like facade tell the story of tradition...until you step inside. The interiors, as envisioned by Chicago-based Project Interiors, tell a fashionable story reflecting a modern lifestyle. Featured in Elle Decor and Sophisticated Living magazine, the residence underwent a top-to-bottom transformation in 2017 that won Wayfair's 2018 Tastemakers Design of the Year award. It is an 8,000 square-foot study of juxtaposition. Old and new have been artfully mixed to perfection. The design palette, unexpectedly high contrast: gold leaf and metallics, leather fringe, crystal and grass cloth, arches and millwork, American cherry wood floors, crisp white walls and rich black framed windows. The foyer makes a chic first impression. Soaring ceilings and a curved staircase set the stage for a home that has been tailor-made for entertaining. A formal living room was converted into a sexy music lounge with pops of metal, a Maxim Lighting chandelier draped with nickel-finished jewelry chain and swoopy metallic graffiti hand-painted by artist Amanda Morrison of Colorblind as the original stone mantle grounds the space with a dose of sultry history. The spacious dining room sets two classic columns against a metallic ceiling, modern drop chandelier and a contemporary black framed temperature-controlled glass wine display. In the kitchen, the interplay of old and new shines again. Here, a large farmhouse sink, integrated Sub-Zero fridge and traditional millwork and cabinetry - painted in a moody gray - contrasts with a metallic hood over the Wolf range, manufactured concrete and honed marble countertops and a modern kitchen island overlapped and intersected by a second waterfall island with bar seating. A sunny dining nook overlooks the backyard. A nearby door also leads to the outdoor patio and spacious yard, providing ease of flow for entertaining during warmer months. The spacious family room, which is flanked by a painted stone fireplace and a wall of windows, invites a sense of camaraderie for all to enjoy. Other spaces on this level include: a beautiful and airy sunroom, library, a private workspace, mudroom and a guest bedroom with walk-in closet and adjoining bath. The finished basement level has been turned into a playful, high fashion entertainer's paradise spanning over 2,300 square feet. A sweeping rec room space with a wet bar, dining area, dance floor (complete with disco ball) and a fun cutout with plush seating opens to a second family room anchored around a stone fireplace. An exercise room, private theater room, wine tasting room and cellar, plus another bedroom have all been stylishly outfitted. Two staircases lead up to the second level, where four bedrooms and a laundry room reside. Two family bedrooms share a jack-and-jill bath, while the other bedroom has its own private bath. The owner's suite feels like a hotel suite with wall-to-wall ripple fold drapery and a tiered crystal chandelier dangling from a high volume ceiling. A sitting room was converted into a huge boutique-style walk-in closet, while two other walk-in closets add convenience. The master bath was entirely remodeled with a modern lens, and is highlighted by a custom vanity by Green Millwork Living, steel-framed round mirrors by Croft House, sconces from Studio Dunn and a concrete soaking tub by Native Trails. Up another flight of stairs, you'll find a third level bedroom, offering two walk-in closets and bath. Beyond the design, the home is teeming with upgrades, including an integrated security and Sonos sound systems. A sought-after location near Hinsdale schools, including Monroe, Clarendon Hills Middle and Hinsdale Central High and 3-car attached heated garage further elevates the property. A spectacular designer showcase! (Landscaping of home done by Premier Landscaping)
