About 1932 North Burling Street
Spectacular in presentation and scale, 1932 N. Burling St. is the most prestigious home on the Chicago real estate market today - a 25,000-square-foot, custom mansion in the heart of Lincoln Park featuring six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and an unparalleled 177' x 149' parcel that spans more than eight city lots. From the limestone facade with detailed relief work and beautiful balconettes to its lavishly landscaped, private grounds and gardens that include an arbor, a hand-forged pavilion, decorative fountains, and a reflection pool, the exterior is a testament to classic European elegance and artisanship. Inside, a 25' x 25' entryway with inlaid, precision-cut marble from the French Pyrenees leads to a grand rotunda that features a statement-making, bronze and 22K gold repousse staircase. The main level continues with a game room, a media room, a project room, a sitting room, and two spacious guest bedroom suites that overlook the gardens. Plus, the media room, game room and sitting room all link to an inviting back terrace for alfresco entertaining of epic proportions. The second level presents a grand living room, a family room, a handsome library, a music room, a formal dining room, and a stunning chef's kitchen with custom cabinetry and professional-grade appliances, not to mention a highly impressive, 2000 square foot wraparound terrace with a professional outdoor kitchen, Kalamazoo grilling station, multiple lounge and dining options, and a wood-burning, outdoor fireplace. The third level reveals multiple, spacious secondary bedroom suites, one with a private study, and a breathtaking primary suite with a hand-carved, English marble fireplace, a custom dressing room, a refreshments center, and two spa-worthy, marble-clad ensuite baths. But there's more... The lower level features an impressive 5000 bottle wine cellar and tasting suite with 14' ceilings modeled after the Great Stable of Versailles, 3,000 square feet of temperature-controlled storage, and the space for a future staff apartment and catering kitchen. Additional, design-forward details include 1,000-pound, custom-designed bronze entry doors, Italian plaster ceiling work and reliefs, custom millwork including moments of gilded and French polished burled walnut, 22K gold and platinum hardware throughout, imported inlay stone, and carefully curated 18th-century light fixtures. Additional amenities include a three-car custom attached garage, a gated motor court for additional parking, a large laundry room with custom millwork, an all-floors elevator, a house manager's office, a security room, and an incredible HVAC and home automation control center. Perfect for large-scale entertaining yet intimate for everyday living by design, 1932 N. Burling St. is one-of-a-kind luxury living.
