    Spectacular Sheridan Road lifestyle home. With seasonal water views, ravine views and access to the 13-acre Moraine Park, this classic retreat is unlike anything else on the market. The magnificent 7 bedroom, all ensuite 7.3 bath Queen Anne is one of the most prominent North Shore estates on a sprawling, appx 1.4 acres. Historically significant, 2480 was masterfully designed by the famed architect William Boyington. There is an incredible value here, rarely available. Nothing was overlooked while design and privacy stand forefront. It's perfectly elevated position provides a very family-centered setting featuring a courtyard, landscape hedgerows, Chicago paver columns and an iron fence with automatic driveway gates along the perimeter. While the history will charm you, the seamless integration with today's technology is what will have you yearning to stay. Bar none, 2480 offers the best finishes one can find on the North Shore. The most sophisticated discerning buyer will appreciate the tranquil-yet-elegant tone the minute they step foot in the foyer. Soaring ceilings, architectural details and first-class custom living spaces are abundant. Merchandise Mart light fixtures, sconces and furnishings are on display. The living room features 1 of 4 fireplaces and provides a useful space for today's living style. The family room is a cozy space for casual hang out time & watching a little tv. The rotunda boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal the well-appointed yard, mature trees, balconies, sun porches and bluestone walkways. Enjoy working from home in the luxe paneled mahogany library. The sun-filled dining room features rich silk wallcoverings, wood paneling, seating for your largest of gatherings and pocket doors with stunning original hardware. The eat-in DeGiulio kitchen is a work of art with the Carrara marble countertops, professional Wolf range, SubZero appliances, two Miele dishwashers, large island with breakfast time seating and built-in cabinetry. Head upstairs via the grand staircase, this is a showstopper! The primary suite offers a separate sitting area for early morning coffee or late-night spirits, two custom jaw dropping dressing areas, spa bath with stone countertops and heated floors, separate tub and large walk-in double steam shower. The second floor continues to showoff with generous bedrooms, custom drapery, walk- in closets and a thoughtful laundry room. Even with grand estate proportions, elegant family entertaining is practical here. The third floor is flexible in use for all family members: a playroom area, home schooling area, ballroom, a yoga/dance studio or could also serve as a separate living quarters with another bedroom & full bath. Take the elevator that services all four floors down to the lower, walkout level.
