In a class by itself, this distinctive, custom home designed by J. Marion Gutenayer is not to be missed! Located in East Wilmette it is close to the beach, parks, transportation and the village center. An architectural masterpiece, two symmetrical, cylindrical shapes anchor a double height wall of windows with a bronze door making a dramatic entry. The first floor is light and airy, the two- story foyer is open to the second floor, lending an ethereal quality to the space. An open floor plan continues the vibe. The house also has a wonderfully practical layout. Form and function work together here. The cylinder on the south side contains a powder room with curved vanity, set well away from the living spaces, ensuring privacy. Also residing on this side of the house is a huge walk-in coat closet. Plenty of space for all your coats as well as your guests. Storage space in this home is enviable. In the north cylinder a beautiful, sculptural staircase gracefully curves upward. Its curved wood banister is made of bleached oak, as are the wood floors (set on the diagonal) and baseboards. A second staircase winds up by the family room space and matches the main staircase trim. The sophisticated architecture mimics the curves found in the exterior cylinders throughout the home. The fireplace brick is the same material as the exterior brick and again features the curved shape as does the hood over the range. The kitchen is large, featuring many cabinets, an island with E/I table space adjacent, a pass through to the dining room, a built-in desk area and a raised countertop for barstools to watch the chef at work. Appliances are stainless. The dining room has sliding doors leading to a balcony. The living room is on the front of the house and has beautiful light as well as a view of the wall of black mirrors that reflect nature and the sunsets from the two-story windows, outside as well as in! It is truly a contemporary masterpiece. The family room opens to all the rooms, including the kitchen area, and has a fireplace as well as views out through the generous-sized screen porch. A large mudroom/pantry with sink has access to the 2 -car ATTACHED garage on one side and the carport on the other. A circle drive in front provides additional parking. From the screened porch you may walk out onto the deck with private, in ground spa. The zen-like back yard is surrounded by trees. The second floor has four very generous sized bedrooms each with large closets. The primary bedroom enjoys the southern sun exposure. A large deck accessed by sliding glass doors overlooks the yard and feels like a treehouse. It is perfect for sun bathing, reading a book, or perhaps viewing the moon after sneaking down unnoticed to the outdoor spa!! A fireplace with marble surround, and an enormous bathroom comprised of separate vanities, a large jacuzzi, separate shower and separated space for commode and bidet. Two, 7X10 separate closets with built-ins complete the suite. In the southern cylinder is an office with custom, circular cabinets. It enjoys privacy at the end of a hallway. There is also a sitting area with tv bracket here, and the laundry room is on this hallway as well. The lower level doesn't feel like a lower level. It is not included in the square footage. Large above- ground windows keep it light and bright. A large rec room, full bath, bedroom, walk-in cedar closet, an additional 2 closets as well as 2 mechanical rooms complete the space. This agent believes there is always another house. However, one like this doesn't come around every day. Don't miss it!!! Sold in an estate and sold AS-IS.
