    Description

    LAKE FOREST MASTERPIECE... CENTAURS TUSCAN HILL TOWER HOME has been updated while preserving the architectural integrity of the past! This stately classical Italianate, 5 story tower home, designed by noted architect David Adler, as a coach house for the original estate, has been masterfully renovated and restored to meet the needs of today's buyers. Privacy abounds this Italian estate, only visible through the wrought iron gates to a paved courtyard with stunning views of the tower. As you enter the foyer, a delightful view of a private interior courtyard is seen through the French doors that mirror one another. The lovey, brick floor of the home is timeless, and an enduring touch of it's past. The open formal living room and dining room are perfect for entertaining, drenched with sunshine from the floor to ceiling windows and spacious design. The library is adjacent to the foyer with built-ins and a door to a first-floor bedroom en-suite and additional staircase access to the second floor. The kitchen has been updated with European custom cabinetry and black onyx quartz countertops. Sleek design with premium stainless-steel appliances such as Wolf, Subzero, Viking, and Miele are a cook's delight. The only addition to the original Adler footprint was a solarium attached to the kitchen where one can enjoy espresso and croissant while basking in the sunshine, or electronically adjust for full shade. The family room is very large with a fireplace and room for multiple sectionals, pool table and/or game tables. The wine cellar is below the family room. The second floor of the home has two large Primary suites, one with an attached office or sitting area. Both En-suite Primary baths have been updated with Carrara marble, and premium finishes. Additional updates, such as instant hot water, heated towel racks, radiant heated floors, separate frameless shower and tub are just a few upgrades to note. The laundry room is also on the second floor in the tower with new appliances, cabinetry and porcelain tile floor. The fourth bedroom is on the third floor of the tower with an en-suite bath. The fourth floor of the tower is known as the "Byzantine Room" painted by noted artist Nikolai Remisoff, has been uniquely preserved. One of only a handful of his murals that remains in existence. The other is in the Lake Forest Library Rotunda. It depicts the Greek Gods overseeing the earth, with the words of a mere mortal, "feeling as if he is walking among the stars with the Gods." Such a unique and breathtaking space would be an amazing home office! The fifth floor of the tower is a bedroom en-suite and sitting area. The final staircase up leads you to a 6th story rooftop terrace with stellar vistas over the treetops to Lake Michigan and at night, the glow of Chicago city lights! A perfect place to watch the stars, get your yoga in, or have an intimate gathering! Possibly this is where Remisoff gained his insight for the stunning mural. The Tower itself is an absolute unique structure that has been preserved by the current owners with adaptive reuse. The Ludowici clay tile roof, brick and stucco have been well cared for and all systems have been upgraded or are new with the addition of a whole house generator. There is a two car garage and extensive patio that overlook the distant ravine and forest. You will feel a serene lifestyle and creative genius in this magnificent and unique home!
