Timeless. Gracious. Private. A stately, French Normandy-style home in sought after East Highland Park? Say no more. 143 Cary Avenue, originally designed and built by award-winning architect Garret Eakin in 2003, is a stunning single-owner abode that boasts six bedrooms and 7.2 bathrooms- and polished architectural details from every angle. Perfectly positioned just above the tree line, overlooking the ravine on almost 1.5 acres, a long circular driveway and meticulous landscaping make for a flawless first impression. Inside, a tranquil-yet-elegant tone is set right away in the foyer, a feeling that continues across the almost 10,000 square feet of first-class interior living spaces. Upon entering, take in the views through the great room's floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal a prettily appointed terrace and, beyond, a bluestone patio with year-round infinity hot tub and ardent private grounds. From the impressive first floor master suite and chef's kitchen to the luxe library and wine cellar, this one-of-a-kind home is immersed in provincial splendor. As for lifestyle pursuits outside of the home, 143 Cary Avenue is located just a short walk from Rosewood Beach and Ravinia. It's also within walking/biking proximity of the Chicago Botanic Garden and downtown Highland Park for shopping and fine dining.
