Description

Auction! $2,300,000 is the suggested opening bid for the online auction. It is not an asking price. There is an unpublished reserve price that is higher. 15 Woodley Road is a rare opportunity to acquire a very special property on one of Winnetka’s most highly sought-after streets. This estate has a timeless, quiet elegance you feel from the moment you approach the pillared entrance and pull into the circular driveway. Its idyllic setting includes two plus acres of well-manicured lawns and lush landscaping including English gardens, a myriad of terraces and fountains, and a recently refinished tennis court. Built to last with only the finest craftsmanship, this home has been impeccably maintained by the same family for over four decades. Traditional and yet updated in design, the home’s exquisite architectural detail, hand carved millwork and moldings just cannot be found in new construction. A grand two-story foyer sets the scene for the rest of the home which features oak hardwood floors throughout. The flow and expanse of this 6 bedroom, 6.5 bath home is perfect for today’s lifestyle with large, gracious rooms for entertaining plus plenty of cozy spaces for smaller gatherings. From the well-appointed living room with impressive crown moldings and gas fireplace to the handsome paneled library/office with adjacent wet bar, this home is ideal for both grand entertaining and comfortable family life. The newer Chef’s kitchen has marble countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, and a butler’s pantry that leads to a family room with custom, built-in media center and French doors that open onto the main entertaining patio. The spacious second floor boasts wide hallways and two, separate wings. The east wing has an oversized master suite plus two other large ensuite bedrooms, an office (or 7th bedroom) with an ensuite bath, and a laundry room. In the west wing, there are three more bedrooms and two full baths conveniently accessed from the back staircase that leads to the mudroom and kitchen. The finished lower level is ready for fun for the whole family with a recreation room, a billiards room, and a game room with full bar. This timeless classic set on over two acres of private gorgeous grounds is ready for the next lucky owners to make their memories here. Pre-auction offers highly encouraged! This property is expected to sell prior to the online auction.
