Available for the first time in 35 years, this iconic Glen Ellyn home is full of beautiful surprises and endless possibility. The level of artisanship here is seldom seen. Handcrafted sculptural features. Intricate ceilings. Sublime tilework and fixtures. The heart of this home is its striking foyer with bifurcated staircase finished in red velvet and ornate sculpture. Rich detail lives in every well-dressed corner of this home's massive entry. The adjacent formal living room features a detailed cove ceiling and grand fireplace with frieze mantle and colored tile surround. The dining room is grand. It has a spectacular two-story vaulted and beamed ceiling and is the egress for a columned balcony with bas-relief historical depiction. Its oversized transom windows take amazing advantage of the home's southern exposure. Two sets of doors lead from the dining room to the sunny eat-in kitchen, which was redone to perfection in 2014. A main level den plus separate office are ideal for dual work-at-home situations. Upstairs, the luxuriously sized master suite offers a private sitting room, immense master bath and dual door access to the potential future private roof deck. Three additional bedrooms are nicely sized and have ensuite baths. The largest has a private covered deck and staircase access to finished attic storage or playroom space. Finished basement with supersized recreation room (former ballroom), game room/bar and ample storage. Although many of the home's original features remain in place (including doors, fixtures, tile and plaster work) the windows and stucco are less than 5 years old. Three car garage with 760 sq foot apartment creates potential for home gym, au pair, or related living situation. Nicely situated well off the street on a treed three quarter acre lot near town, train, and everything wonderful that Glen Ellyn has to offer. This property is simply extraordinary and is a fantastic opportunity for a lucky buyer.
