A new Elmhurst IL home has just been put on the market and is worthy of mention in this blog. Rebuilt in 02' with $1.4 million in updates, this more than 6500 sqft incomparable residence offers a rare and exceptional floor plan and has been meticulously re-built from the foundation up. Backing to Golden Meadow Park and Prairie Path, it is one of Elmhurst Illinois' most distinctive addresses.

We wish you could all see this home because it’s worthy of a visit, but if you can't, we offer you the next best thing. The Gracik Makinney Real Estate Group offers our first virtual walk-through tour of 474 South Street


Entering the slate-floored foyer, a chandelier hangs overhead among the vaulted ceiling and Cinderella loft. Further inside, you'll find the formal living room and adjoining library a graceful beginning to the floor plan with its brick surround gas wood burning fireplace with built-in shelving, eye brow casement windows and recessed lighting. Not only is the kitchen attractive with its vaulted ceiling, skylights, granite countertops and ceramic tile backsplash, but it also comes with every possible amenity - a work desk, island with breakfast bar, Grohe sink, Dacor warming drawer, commercial exhaust hood, walk-in pantry, Bosch dishwasher, and more.  

Two choices for dining begin with the breakfast area within the kitchen which features tiered ceiling, in-crown chandelier lighting and sliding glass door to the porch. The second option is the dining area with chandelier lighting and french door access to the porch. Retire the dinner party to the family room, perfect for entertaining with its wet butler and ice maker, along with decor featuring bowed window and seat and recessed lighting. The screened in porch touting paver brick floor and vaulted ceiling is a wonderful feature to enjoy the outdoors all-year round.

Conveniently on the main level, the generous-sized master bedroom suite offers vaulted ceiling and walk-in closet with custom shelving among other features. A spa-like master bathroom offers tray ceiling, double sinks, separate shower with Grohe fixtures, makeup desk and whirlpool tub. For recreation of all sorts, stow away to the finished lower level, complete with wall to wall carpeting, built-in bookshelves, exercise area, sewing room, 3/4 bathroom and sauna.

Outdoors just as fantastic as in, the fully fenced backyard boasts a continuous flow in-ground pool with water slides, waterfall and diving board. A retractable awning protects patio sun bathers from the elements. Added bonuses include a pure water purification system, 3 HVAC Zones with air filters and humidifiers, and much, much more.

If this has piqued your interest enough to take you away from the computer screen and into the home itself, please give us a call. We would love to give you a non-virtual tour too!
