FROM TOP LEFT: The cozy den; the exterior’s Indiana limestone; the state-of-the-art kitchen; the garden’s greenery
Featuring a classic Indiana limestone façade and leaded windows, this home at 1435 N. State Parkway was built by architect Howard Van Doren Shaw in 1885. With five levels, it has 10 rooms including four bedrooms, plus three full and three half baths, all of which have been renovated with modern amenities. It all adds up to approximately 7,000 square feet of living space.
What You’ll Love
This grand home is idyllic no matter the season. During wintertime your family will enjoy the warmth of five fireplaces. And you needn’t brave the cold if you want to enjoy a spectacular view of the backyard’s winter wonderland: Just saddle up to one of the cozy window seats in the home’s many bay windows. In spring and summer the awardwinning garden lends itself perfectly to entertaining. You can also bask in sunshine on the private roof deck just off the master suite. In the mood for a stroll along the beach? The property is within walking distance of the lake.
Where You’ll Live
In keeping with a traditional 19th-century home, the fully equipped chef’s kitchen is located on the lower level of the residence, although it has been updated; bright design gives the illusion that it sits on a main level. Large windows, which flood the eat-in area with light, offer an amazing garden view. Plus, the kitchen features topof- the-line appliances and marble countertops. The sumptuous master suite encompasses the entire fourth floor and includes two huge walk-in closets and a marble, spa-like master bath. Two of the home’s other generously sized bedrooms are located on the third floor, and the fourth can be found on the lower level.
The Bottom Line
For $5.75 million, you and your family can live in a spacious single-family home on one of the most beautiful blocks in the Gold Coast.
