    Set on an oversized lot in sought-after East Kenilworth, 615 Essex Road was renovated in 2013 and was completely transformed with the highest level of finishes all under the careful design of Morgante Wilson Architects. This 5 bedroom, 5.1 bath home seamlessly blends the formal and casual gathering places along with breathtaking views of the professionally landscaped yard. The impressive foyer makes a statement with views of the formal living room and dramatic arches which lead to the heart of the home-- the thoughtfully designed cook's kitchen with an expansive marble island, custom cabinetry, and top-of-the-line appliances: Blue Star Range, Subzero refrigerator and Bosch dishwashers. This exceptional space includes a breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows. The convenient butler's pantry/wet bar with wine refrigerator leads to the home's showstopper - the original mahogany-paneled dining room. The expansive sun-filled family room has custom bookcases and allows easy access to the yard through French doors. The second floor includes a luxe master suite that would rival any 5- star hotel with a spa-like bathroom and walk-in closets. Three additional bedrooms and an office share two stylish Jack and Jill bathrooms. The sun-filled laundry room finishes out this impressive second-floor space. The third-floor suite, with treetop views, includes the fifth bedroom, sitting room, timeless marble bath, and loads of storage. The lower level with high ceilings consists of a rec room with a wet bar and wine refrigerator, media room, workout room, full bathroom, wine cellar, and extensive storage. The exquisite grounds and magnificent facade includes a back terrace and 3-car attached garage and an additional detached garage bay. This renovation was complete and thorough and included the replacement of mechanical, electrical, plumbing systems, windows, and slate roof, all with the intent of keeping the tradition of this home alive. 615 Essex is the best of both worlds -- an ultra-private oasis in the most walkable East Kenilworth location. Steps to New Trier High School, the award-winning Joseph Sears School (JK-8), Metra, the beach, shopping, and dining.
