Bold. Sleek. Timeless. That’s what you’ll see when you enter this incredible custom-built Highland Park home at 4304 Belclaire. Awash in marble and studded with rich brass sporting an artful patina, this French-inspired transitional is adorned with the highest quality materials in a layout that makes it a prime spot for entertaining.
Built on one of Highland Park’s most sought-after streets, this incredible home traverses boundaries of elegance and style with form and function. It has a level of thoughtfulness and graciousness you’d expect from its designer and stager Elizabeth Robertson and architect Will Snyder.
Clad in sleek native limestone, this home is eye-catching, with details that will leave an impression on any guest. This exclusive property is offered for $5.9 million.
Step inside this 7,397-square-foot home, and a critical eye will notice the way the home flows from entry to the spacious covered rear porch. The arched floor-to-ceiling windows flood the formal living and dining rooms with light. High ceilings accented with crown molding offer a regal reflection to the more relaxed hand-scraped hardwood floors.
One of the most stunning features you’ll find inside 4304 Belclaire is the hand-welded brass banister — a touch of glamour that adds visual impact to what is often a subtle and utilitarian part of a home. It enlivens the hallway, taking the structure from a vessel to a work of art not unlike a French chateau.
Just past the entrance is the immaculate chef’s kitchen. An immense island flanked by walls filled with custom cabinetry, commercial-grade stainless steel appliances, and designer hardware, and then draped with opulent marble, is a feast for the eyes that is built for preparing meals about which your guests will rave.
Truly, this is a home designed for entertaining. With a large and private guest suite on the first floor, as well as formal areas that delight the senses, it’s almost too easy to imagine the grand fetes and intimate gatherings you could host in this home.
And when the party is over, take refuge upstairs in an exceedingly well-appointed master suite. The vaulted ceilings and bank of French doors leading to a Juliet balcony, overlooking the exceptionally manicured backyard — every bit of this bedroom is romance and elegance. A coffee bar and reading nook make the master suite an absolute retreat.
If you’re accustomed to the pinnacle of luxury, the master bath will not disappoint. Covered in custom marble tile, this bath has an accommodating pedestal bathtub opposite a spa-worthy steam shower, as well as two independent vanities. With immense his and hers closets, one of which would make any fan of Carrie Bradshaw weak in the knees, makes this bathroom enviable.
With three additional upstairs guestrooms with their own en-suite baths, as well as a separate study and den, 4304 Belclaire is ideal for a family that wants to take advantage of the nationally recognized Highland Park Independent School District. Equal parts function and whimsy, these rooms sport vaulted clapboard ceilings, gorgeous full baths with marble and luscious azure underfoot and on the walls, and room enough for guests or family.
This is a dream home. This home can capture a child’s imagination, provide for a family in search of luxury, and host the perfect dinner party that has since remained only a fantasy. This is a home for dreams.
