Architectural Sophistication And Resort Like Lakefront Living
About 106 Longmeadow Road, Winnetka, Illinois
Turns out you really can have it all. Provencal charm, architectural sophistication and the luxuries of resort-like living unfold across more than 10,000 square feet of interior space and 1.1 acres at 106 Longmeadow Rd. in Winnetka. Situated on a privately owned lake (Lake Longmeadow), this French Chateau-style estate, designed by award-winning architect Wayne Zediker, makes a storybook first impression courtesy of wrought-iron security gates, a herringbone-paver circle drive, dueling turrets, Juliet balconies, a slate roof and effortlessly romantic landscaping. An impeccably maintained custom build that has never before been on the market, the home boasts 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 3 half baths, and 5 fireplaces, not to mention a host of world-class amenities including a home theater and a 1,000-bottle, Napa-inspired wine room. On the main level, unassuming elegance begins with a great room that perfectly presents for everyday living and large-scale entertaining, while a handsome library/office makes WFH a cultured affair. Close-by, an enviable chef’s kitchen appointed with Miele and Gaggenau appliances and walnut cabinetry connects to a butler’s pantry, an informal dining space, a generous-yet-cozy family room, and a mudroom with laundry and dog shower. The first floor is also home to a secluded wing that’s entirely devoted to the primary suite and includes an elegant spa bath with double jacuzzi tub and his-and-hers showers. Upstairs, 3 additional ensuite bedrooms, including a second extra-large bedroom, plus a bonus hangout lounge, craft room and laundry, allow family and friends to settle in and spread out. But it’s the subterranean level where multi-generational good times and wellness options abound, including a professional gym, a batting cage that can easily be converted into a golf simulator, a treatment room with spa bath, a billiards room and an oversize bar. The experiential fun extends outdoors, too, where a tiered bluestone patio provides a sun-kissed perch for alfresco dining and refreshments by the fire pit—and direct access to perennial pursuits on Lake Longmeadow (swimming, boating, paddle boarding and ice skating in the wintertime, just to name a few). An integrated Crestron smart home with a classic French sensibility and inclusive recreation and relaxation, all in the New Trier school district and just 15 miles from downtown Chicago… 106 Longmeadow is redefining what’s possible on the near North Shore.
