Property Description

Designed by renowned architect Edwin Mann, and built by a custom home builder for his daughter, crafting her dream home, using only the highest quality materials and paying great attention to detail. The current owner continued the original builders' high standards with every improvement made. This is notably one of the most impressive combinations of classic style with modern conveniences, located just minutes to downtown Highland Park. Set back almost 100 feet from St. Johns, a thick hedge creates this hidden sanctuary. This stone and stucco home overlooks the ravine to the south and in-ground pool to the west. Enter through the leaded glass front entry door to the vestibule and pass through a second doorway to the 20' foyer. The richly paneled living room features a classic fireplace with lime stone mantel and custom glass front cabinetry for treasured books or special collections. Experience the tranquil ravine from the elegant formal dining room. Tucked into a corner of the breakfast room is the butler's pantry area with lass front cabinets and generous counter space for all of your entertaining needs. Plain and Fancy white kitchen and granite counters incorporate Wolf, Bosch and Sub-Zero appliances.
