Welcome to 720 Ardsley Road. A rare opportunity to own an architecturally and historically significant Winnetka estate. This Stately English Tudor was built in 1937 by Arthur Nielsen, creator of the Nielsen ratings. Designed by the renowned architect Benjamin Marshall (Drake Hotel, Edgewater Beach Hotel, creation of East lake Shore Drive, South Shore Country Club (now Cultural Center), Blackstone Hotel and Theater). This majestic home is situated on 1.5 acres of beautiful rolling landscaped grounds that surround the home in a secluded enclave located on one of Winnetka's few exclusive private roads. Meticulously and lovingly restored, this manor was recently renovated with the finest materials available. Featured in Traditional Home Magazine, the home's entry is classic with moldings that follow the sweep of the grand staircase and stately scaled rooms decorated by the late interior designer Nora Marra. The living room, with an elegant fireplace and floor to ceiling windows connects to the new addition built in 2011 at the south end of the house replacing a 3 season porch with an incredible library/office space, featuring a Rumford fireplace and beams hailing from the rich wood of the 150 year old farm in Wisconsin. A formal dining room connects to the kitchen - butler's pantry, breakfast room and gallery renovated in 2019. A large family / media room with a new wet bar, great for entertaining. A newly installed house-wide sound and media based iPad system (Elan). Second floor has a gorgeous master suite with a marvelous master bath.. Five additional bedrooms and remodeled bathrooms. Third floor offers a living space, bedroom and full bath - wonderful for guests, in-law or nanny suite. Basement remodeled with rebuilt fireplace and large wine cellar. The spectacular grounds feature: a stunning pool, spa, tennis court (also pickleball outfitted), putting green, perfect space for a garden. Also, features two spacious bluestone patios for entertaining outdoors. Circular driveway with 4 car attached garage with sport court & viewing room. Centrally located in the heart of Winnetka, close to schools, trains and both the main Village and Hubbard Woods. This magnificent home is truly an opportunity, with so much architectural integrity and historical significance. Exquisite beyond compare.
