A true Highland Park gem, this estate on Bordeaux Avenue lives up to its address with a resplendent, ornate nod to the European homes situated on lush, yawning acres. Four stories and over 14,000 sq. feet offer everything one should find in their dream home, from an expansive wine cellar and media room to the incredible nine-car garage. Designed by architect Clay Nelson, the five-bedroom, seven full-bath and four-half bath mansion is studded with gorgeous accents, including custom-painted finishes and furnishings in 18th century marble and Alder-wood paneling. Behind the main house is the guest quarters, a perfect home away from home for any guests expecting the royal treatment.
Perhaps one of the most distinguishable features is the separation of the his and hers baths, perfectly crafted to suit the taste of any Highland Park gentry. The designer is said to have described the hers bathroom as a “religious experience,” due to the bright and airy layout with its ivory sinks and marble slab floors. Everything a lady needs to primp this bathroom has, from a computerized shower to an adjoining makeup room with built-in vanity. Not to mention the nine spacious closets.
His bathroom is much more suitable for the gentleman of the house, with its rich walnut paneling and marble floor. The built-in closets allow floor-to-ceiling drawers and shelves for every kind of fine head-to-toe garments, and for the James Bond in you, you’ll find a hidden closet and recess space for a flat screen TV.
