During the past 15 years many of East Winnetka's aging brick and wood homes were demolished and replaced by stone homes in a nouveau-chateau style, reasonably accurate scale-model versions of their European ancestors.
The exterior façade of the 3-year old home at 1144 Tower Rd is a classic example of the genre, but its interior appears to be far more lavishly detailed than many of its counterparts. Wainscoting, picture-frame and crown moldings, coffered ceilings and other period touches are abundantly in evidence.
The newly-listed 5,500 square foot, 5-bedroom, 4 ½ bath home is on a 75 x 150 foot lot near Winnetka's Hubbard Woods Metra stop and the adjacent retail / dining scene. It has all the features you'd expect in a home priced at $1.865M in Winnetka, and a few that you might not. The "driveway snowmelt" system, for example, is likely to be much appreciated in the upcoming winter months.
Koenig & Strey's Sherry Molitor has the listing.
