Uniquely special in every way, this 5 bed/5 bath, 7,000 sq ft home with a private pool is a stunning example of world-class design. Perched above a gourmet market in Printers Row, a neighborhood with National Register of Historic Places status, the home was developed, designed and constructed by Filoramo Talsma Architecture to afford incredible exposure and sightlines to Dearborn Station. The exterior finds definition from masonry construction and a steel-and-terra cotta sunscreen by Fabrik that harnesses light and shadow. Inside, the first level features a sleek foyer, a stylish vestibule/mudroom with smart storage and bench seating, and attached access to the home's heated, oversized 2-car garage (can accommodate a lift for additional parking). The main floor is devoted to this home's spectacular living and entertaining spaces - a double-height living room, a modern kitchen, a dining room that can house an exceptionally long table, a family room, and 2,000 sq ft of private outdoor space. Accessed via a sliding glass wall system, the terrace features designated dining and lounge spaces, perennial landscaping, and a stainless steel swimming pool by Diamond Spas that can be heated for year-round use. The striking chef's kitchen features custom Italian cabinets and Carrara marble/stainless steel countertops by Arclinea, Wolf/Miele/Sub-Zero appliances, a back kitchen for added prep space, and a massive island with bar seating. Up a visually dramatic floating staircase, the third level is entirely devoted to the home's primary suite, and features a spacious bedroom, a dressing room, a sunny en-suite bath with a dual vanity, a soaking tub and a walk-in shower, and a handsomely appointed WFH office/owners den. The top floor presents four secondary, en-suite bedrooms for children or guests, plus a bonus recreation/media room. Standout finishes and design details include custom millwork throughout, oversized windows at every turn, radiant-heated concrete slab floors with a Sintered Stone finish, curtain wall glazing throughout, and decorative lighting by Flos and Alison Berger. Amenities include an all-floors Otis Gen2 elevator, upstairs laundry, surplus storage, a 16 kW PV solar power kit on the roof, zoned HVAC with three separate systems, dual tankless water heaters, and whole-home automation by Savant that controls shades, lighting, integrated AV and security. Luxe residential living just a few steps away from the full tilt of the city's core commerce and business district, 747 S. Dearborn St. is an elevated, urban dwelling for the homeowner who appreciates cutting-edge architecture and uncompromising comforts. (Note: The sale includes a bonus street-level, 2,000 sq ft commercial space, totaling 9000 square feet of interior footage.)
