About Awe Inspiring Georgian In Glencoe IL, Glencoe, Illinois
The former estate of Pabst Brewing Company president and chairman Harris Perlstein is an iconic property on Chicago's North Shore. Situated on two-and-a-half verdant acres that stretch from its gated entrance on Sheridan Road in Glencoe, Illinois, the awe-inspiring Georgian was first designed in 1936 by William Pereira. Now on the market after an extensive three-year, full-gut renovation meticulously executed by the owners themselves, 443 Sheridan encompasses a wealth of modern amenities whilst preserving the property's historic importance. The 9 bed/11.8 bath home stuns with grand moments and rich architectural details in keeping with a Georgian-style manor (think expansive cased openings and transitional spaces, high ceilings, window headers and elegant crown molding). The finished product is less stately and more inviting courtesy of bespoke finishes and a modern floor plan designed for both large-scale entertaining and intimate family gatherings. For the contemporary kitchen featuring cabinetry, dueling islands (one with an indestructible matte black countertop, the other topped in Taj Mahal quartzite), installation-worthy custom lighting, a gorgeous appliances suite, and an electric fireplace for ambiance at the push of a button. Massive sliding glass doors from flood the kitchen and breakfast nook with natural light-and provide effortless access to the courtyard and resort-style grounds beyond. Additionally, the home's chicly appointed guest house has been revamped to include a kitchen, family room, powder room and two ensuite bedrooms. Connected to the main house by a window-lined passageway and possessing a private patio entrance to the yard, visitors can meet up for meals or by the pool-or keep to themselves when so desired. Outside, the sprawling estate comes complete with meticulously manicured grounds that delight the senses and define the property for leisurely pursuits.
