Description:This iconic Highland Park residence has been restored in exquisite detail and expanded to over 12,000 square feet of sumptuous living space surrounded by lush gardens, fountains, a swimming pool and multiple outdoor living areas. Known as the Ferris Mansion, the house was built in 1923 on a 95X200 lot at Beverly Drive and Byron. The home has six bedrooms, five baths, three half baths, seven living areas inside, and three outdoor living areas. The front section of the house includes a grand entry hall and two formal living rooms on the first level, and an elaborate master suite on the second level. On axis with the living room fireplace, a gallery lined with arched glass doors extends south uniting the formal living areas with an elegant dining room, a spacious kitchen and an incredible two story paneled library. Between the kitchen and the library, the gallery widens and a double staircase descends to an extraordinary underground entertaining space. A marvel of residential engineering, the lower level was excavated during the restoration of the house. Today, the game room, bar, wine cellar, tasting room, theater and gym are located beneath the garden and swimming pool. The lower level has no shortage of natural light from the gallery staircase and a glass wall that faces a stunning sunken outdoor living area with a staircase to the garden and pool. The grand staircase in the entry hall and a second off of the kitchen lead to four second level bedroom suites, a shared living area, laundry room, ironing room, and the master suite. The master has soaring beamed ceilings, a fireplace, his and hers dressing rooms, a lavish spa bath and a loggia overlooking the pool and grounds. Occupying much of the second level of the front of the house, the master suite is private and truly breathtaking. Mature trees, cut stone walkways and cast stone details frame the beautiful landscape that surrounds the house. Arched glass doors throughout the main level open to picturesque grounds, terraces and elegant outdoor living areas, uniting the whole property for entertaining and creating a serene and restful daily living environment like no other. A discreet, gated drive and three car garage on the west side of the house can be accessed from Beverly Drive or from the alley.
