Description

Welcome to 140 Sheridan Road. A rare opportunity to own an architecturally and historically significant Mayo estate just steps from Lake Michigan. Built in 1928 as the Felix Lowy House, this majestic home is situated on just over one acre of land, across the street from Lake Michigan. Entering from Sheridan Road through the wrought iron gates to the grand circular driveway, which surrounds the tranquil reflecting pool and fountain which is centered to the front entrance of the house. The front terraces on either side of the welcoming entrance are a perfect place to enjoy the lake breezes. Entering the house through the front door, one walks into the grand foyer. Flanking the front entrance are two-story-high leaded glass bay windows with built-in window seats. The sense of symmetry throughout the interior and exterior of this home is quite characteristic of the Mayo influence. A massive wood burning fireplace with a spectacular concrete mantle stands majestically opposite the front door in the grand foyer. The decorative, meticulously painted plaster cast ceiling is truly something to behold. To the right of the grand foyer is the library, with built-in bookshelves and leaded glass windows and original hardware. There is a charming powder room with marble floors and walls, just opposite the coat closet. To the left of the grand foyer, one walks through the wrought iron gates opening into the large, inviting living room, with another woodburning fireplace and dramatic concrete mantle on the East wall. From the living room, walk through leaded glass doors opening into the tranquil sunroom, complete with a recirculating indoor fountain and ceramic tile floor. Continuing from the sunroom, we come upon an enclosed heated porch with California Sunset Stone flooring, and a free-standing wood burning stove. Architectural details abound throughout the entire interior and exterior of this special property. Hardwood floors, original leaded glass windows and doors, majestic mantels, arched doorways, decorative stucco ceilings, picture frame moldings, ceramic tile floors, to name just a few of the well-preserved details throughout the house. Continuing straight through the grand foyer into the generous sized dining room, which opens to the breakfast room and kitchen on one side, and the cozy family room to the other side. The large, open kitchen boasts walnut cabinetry, high-end stainless-steel appliances, granite counters, and two sink areas. The enormous, finished basement has space for everyone, including a home gym area with a full bath, walk-in safe room, huge laundry room with two sets of washer/dryers. There is a large recreation room complete with a built-in bar, perfect for entertaining. Plenty of storage space, as well. The second floor can be accessed from the main stairway off the grand foyer, or from the back hall area off the kitchen. On the second floor there are five bedrooms, including the primary bedroom suite. Four of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, all with marble flooring and wall tiles. The third floor has the fabulous ball room, magnificent space with the original maple floor. A perfect playroom, home office, rec room, or studio space. A full bath with freestanding copper tub, a huge cedar storage room, and plenty of other storage space is also on the third floor. The spectacular grounds include an in-ground swimming pool built in 2008. There is a separate pool house, complete with two full baths/dressing rooms/showers. The attached two car garage provides convenient access into the house. There is plenty of additional space to park multiple vehicles. This magnificent home is truly an opportunity, so much architectural integrity and historical significance, in a prime East location. A true gem.
