-THE DOMAIN -

-MAIN LEVEL- A dramatic flight of limestone stairs leads to the main level, comprising open living, dining and kitchen areas. A massive two-story space that functions as a living room edges the front of the townhome’s main level and overlooks the street. A matching space at the opposite end of the floor functions as a music room. Both the front and rear of the home have large expanded custom glass windows, in some cases weighing in excess of 2,000 lbs.

-MASTER SUITE- the stairs continue up to the master suite and bathroom, which is suspended above the main living spaces below. The marble and glass steam shower, as well as the free standing Boffi Tub, open directly to the master bedroom blurring any boundaries. A built-in clothes rack runs the width of the master bedroom, allowing for a designer wardrobe as a privacy screen. A custom skylight at the top of the main stairway adds as an additional source of light.

-LOWER LEVEL- On the lower level is two additional bedrooms & bathrooms, laundry, a brick-walled garden in the front, a zen garden and parking for 4 vehicles in the rear.

-OUTDOORS- There are 2 terraces at Chicago de Blanco, both equipped with custom lighting and sound. The terrace on the main floor is ideal for entertaining and alfresco dining, while the terrace off the master suite serves as a private solarium, equipped with a shower.

-SPECIFICATIONS-

-SOUND-
Concrete masonry exterior walls and large expanded versions of radon-filled windows from Kawneer offer brilliant acoustics in a soundproof environment. The house is equipped with a Master Elan Stereo and Security System equipped with over 24 speakers.
 
-LIGHT- A luminous and sheer screen of gossamer floor-to-ceiling window treatments, made out of parachute cloth controls the precise amount of light being filtered through for each application, and emits the desirable degree of privacy when called upon. There are various “Boxes of Light” throughout the domain that peak at different times of the day, offering unique expanses of light and space.

-MATERIALS- The sophisticated, minimalist palette consists of white painted steel, charcoal grey limestone floors and stair treads from China, white plaster walls, and white Calcutta Vagli marble counter-tops in the kitchen and master shower from Italy. One continuous piece of custom stainless steel functions as the railings.

-CULINARY- Gaggenau range, cook-top & dishwasher, & 2-Sub-Zero 700 Series for refrigeration and freezing.
