    Description

    Built in 1906 by the renowned architectural firm of Marshall & Fox (designers of the Blackstone and Drake hotels), and enlarged in 1921 by Howard van Doren Shaw, 4930 South Woodlawn Avenue is one of the finest homes in the South Kenwood historic landmark district. With over 8,000 square feet of magnificently restored interior spaces, and a half acre park-like setting, this home possesses an incomparable array of beautiful features. Like its neighbors on this block, 4930 South Woodlawn is distinguished by its unusually deep setback from the street, adding to its imposing curb appeal and providing a sense of privacy rare in the city. Approaching the house up the winding brick drive gives a real sense of visiting a country home. The first floor interior is extremely versatile, and can be dressed up or down according to personal taste. The oak-paneled library easily functions as a formal entertaining space or as a comfortable TV room for the family. The renovated eat-in kitchen has all-white custom cabinets, a teak island, soapstone counters, and built-in high-end appliances (Wolf, SubZero). The array of windows in the kitchen provides wonderful light and views. Indeed the entire house, with its dominant south orientation, is flooded with natural light. The second floor has four large bedrooms and three full baths. The master bedroom suite is especially impressive, with a dressing room leading to his-and-her walk-in closets and a spectacular marble bath with double sinks, large shower with body sprays, and a separate soaking tub. The third floor offers two more spacious bedrooms with ensuite baths, a media room with projector and drop-down screen, a fully-equipped second kitchen, and a private office. The full-height finished basement contains a recreation room with TV viewing area and a pool table. The climate controlled wine room stores up to 750 bottles. A full-sized private home gym is a real luxury. The professionally landscaped beautiful and private back gardens offer wonderful entertaining spaces and even a sauna. The coach house has an oversized 2+ car garage (with electric charging station) and an apartment above. Truly a spectacular property.
