Description

Sensational location and amazing, unexpected outdoor space like nothing you have seen in the city! This timeless Romanesque designed single family home was built in 1892 by important architect L. Gustav Hallberg. Entering the home through the wood paneled vestibule into the central foyer with 12-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and access to all the spacious rooms on the first floor. The double living rooms have matching detailed gas fireplaces, large south facing windows that bring in generous natural light. The sitting room has a gorgeous pocket door as you enter into the stunning dining room with wood paneling, fireplace, gold leaf ceiling and hidden bar. Truly a gracious space for entertaining. The light filled eat in cook's kitchen features a spacious island and granite countertops. But the prime feature is the bank of windows overlooking the beautiful views of the expansive backyard and patio. Totally unexpected. The grand staircase with original wood paneling leads up to the second floor where you are greeted to the Music room/library with built in bookcases, featuring antique ornamentation and framed by a dramatic architectural arch from Thailand. The Primary suite features a fireplace, two walk in closets and spacious primary bath. Large family room with fireplace, built in bookcases, overlooks tree-lined Cedar Street. A second full bathroom, laundry and wet bar complete this floor. Stairs to the third floor has an amazing skylight and leads to four large bedrooms, two full baths, and two additional fireplaces. (The house has a total of 7 gas fireplaces.) Lower level offers office space, one bedroom apartment with kitchenette, full bath, and a private entrance to Cedar Street. This unique space is ideal for a home office, separate quarters for a nanny or adult family member. The lower level also features a cedar closet, abundance of storage and additional laundry. The backyard is like nothing else, gorgeous professionally landscaped garden and patio with pergola and gazebo . You will feel like you are on a European vacation in this is spectacular outdoor space. This special home is located on the tree lined Cedar Street which is just steps to the lake, high end shopping and dining. A prime, easy-access deeded parking spot across the street conveys with the house.
