Live your dream on the Lakefront! Literally step out of your yard and onto the beaches of the shore of Lake Michigan. Designed by legendary architects Holobird & Root and built in 1890, the former Fort Sheridan Pumping Station was transformed to residences in 2008. A stunning harmony of old and new, industrial and organic, open up to sweeping views of Lake Michigan, with easy beachfront access and the quiet trails of Fort Sheridan Forest Preserve. Gorgeous hand-scraped walnut flooring, classic archways and wooden beams recall the structure's past life providing fresh drinking water to historic Fort Sheridan. A multi-story stone fireplace provides an iconic centerpiece for the airy open living room with its clever built-ins, wet bar, reading nook and music spaces, adjoining dining room and media room. The enormous chef's kitchen provides both space and amenities for a formal dinner party and the warmth of a family gathering space. A private office provides a perfect spot for productivity and leads to both the arched entryway and out towards the lakefront. The lakeside entry and drop zone features a full bath and laundry for easy cleanup after a day at the beach. Head out to the expansive stone patio and vast open yard to enjoy the natural splendor. Four bedrooms, all with meticulously designed ensuite baths, versatile loft spaces, serene balcony, laundry and a magnificent Primary suite with unrivaled lakefront views highlight the second level. A private drive leads to the 4-car garage with party, exercise and bonus rooms, full bath plus powder room, abundant storage, a wine cellar and masterfully laid brickwork surrounding the charming courtyard entryway, welcoming you to this one-of-a-kind home. You have NEVER seen a house like this.
