    Description

    Welcome to this elegant vintage Tudor on a most coveted street in Winnetka. This stately three story Manor House is situated one block from Lake Michigan beaches and town. Just outside your door is the downtown retail district and the metro station. Winnetka's revitalized downtown includes new restaurants, cafes and shops. The home has been owned by the same family for over forty years. 608 Arbor Vitae Rd. was constructed in 1911 with old world classic details and adornments. Upon entering the gracious foyer you are awestruck by the beauty of the curved mahogany staircase beautifully preserved hardwood floors, arched doorways, ten foot ceilings and elegant hand carved crown moldings. The arched doorways lead to a spacious and beautifully appointed living room which features a large bay window, a handsome wood burning fireplace with a carved vintage mantlepiece. South of the foyer is the dining room with 10' of wainscoting and oversized double sash windows allowing for an abundance of natural light. Next is the expansive timeless chef's kitchen. This spacious kitchen boasts of solid wood cabinetry, black honed granite counter tops and island. Top of the line Wolf, double oven and cooktop, a Subzero side by side refrigerator with separate freezer drawers and crisper. The butler's pantry boasts wood cabinetry, granite counters, and Kitchen Aid ice maker. The ample breakfast area can accommodate a table with up to 8 chairs. A warm and cozy library off the entryway features 3 walls of custom built-in bookcases, window seat and wood burning fireplace. The library leads into a charming tile floored sunroom with wall to wall large windows. The perfect 1st floor indoor getaway yet with the feel of being outside. Going to the 2nd floor you are greeted by another spacious landing which leads to the sun drenched master-suite featuring a wood burning fireplace, separate sitting room and updated spacious bath. In addition, there are 3 en suite bedrooms and a charming screened porch with porch swings. Perfect for a rainy day novel or nap. On the the third floor you will find 5 bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The 8' ceiling height and numerous windows lets in loads of natural light. This space could be reconfigured for a perfect media and game room. The ultimate lounge space with treetop views. The unfinished basement runs the length of the home and is 1,658 square feet of wonderful storage space. Possibilities of utilizing part of this space may even include creating your own private wine cellar and/or lower level game area. Finally, a 2 car detached garage and wonderful private backyard. This home boasts 15 rooms, 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 1 powder room. New A/C on the 3rd level was added March 2021. Sold AS/IS. This is an excellent opportunity to restore a stunning home in the most desirable Winnetka location. Chandelier in dining room is excluded
