This exceptional Lautz-built home, situated on a half-acre corner lot in Wheaton's prestigious Prairie Avenue, offers an impressive 8 bedrooms, 5.3 baths, and living space totaling 8,388 square feet! Featuring a Control4 Home Automation System, just updated in 2023, this home is a true "smart house", providing all modern conveniences. The home's curb appeal is striking: follow the landscaped walkway up to the wraparound front porch and note the craftsman architectural details. The leaded glass front door with an arched transom and sidelights opens onto a grand two-story foyer with a large landing from which one can take in the home's flowing floor plan. There are newly refinished hardwood floors throughout the first floor, which feature an inlaid herringbone pattern in the formal dining room, just to the right of the foyer. To the left, stairs lead to a mezzanine-level private office, featuring a gently vaulted 12-foot ceiling. Across from the foyer, the formal living room offers a warm spot to greet guests, with a beautiful stone dual-sided fireplace, wall-to-wall windows, and a French door leading to the sunroom. The sunroom has lovely blue stone flooring and access to the spacious back patio. The dual-sided fireplace is shared with the gourmet kitchen, where more impressive architectural details catch your eye, including the cat-eye-shaped floating tray ceiling with recessed and pendant lighting above the two-tier center island. The kitchen also has 42" maple cabinets, granite counters, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, and a walk-in pantry with built-in shelving. The attached breakfast room features a dry bar for more storage, large windows, and double doors leading out to the back patio. The family room is an inviting space, featuring a coffered ceiling, recessed lighting, and a gas fireplace with a blue stone hearth. Large bay windows flood the room with natural light, while two patio doors open to the wrap-around front porch. The first floor also features two powder rooms and the home's main laundry room, conveniently located off the 3-car garage. Built-in cabinets fill the walls of the laundry room for maximum storage space, as well as the washer, dryer, and utility sink for easy clean up. The hardwood staircase leads to the second level, where 6 of the home's bedrooms are located. The primary bedroom is a true oasis, featuring a double-door entry, a fireplace, and an octagonal tray ceiling for added architectural interest. Dual walk-in closets provide ample storage space, and the en-suite bath offers a luxurious whirlpool tub, a dual vanity, a walk-in shower, and a private commode. Each of the other 5 bedrooms also have walk-in closets and access to a bath, either en-suite or shared. The second floor also boasts a second laundry for added convenience, and a bonus loft. The full finished basement offers plenty of additional living space, including a kitchenette with a fridge, sink, and dishwasher, a theater room with 8 tiered armchairs, screen, and projector, a second family room with a stone fireplace, two additional bedrooms, a craft room, a full bath, a large workshop, and cedar closet for additional storage space. The large backyard is a true retreat, full of mature trees and featuring a tiered brick paver patio with a built-in grilling station, fridge, a gas firepit, hot tub, and an outdoor TV. The Home Automation System, powered by Control4, allows you to control the entire home from your phone: audio and video media, lighting, security system, door locks, Ecobee thermostats, sprinkler system, etc. This system can provide a significant reduction in energy expenditure as well as enhanced security. Great location near Wheaton & Glen Ellyn downtown areas. Schedule your private tour of this one-of-a-kind property today.
