Have you ever dreamed of living in 770?
Here’s your chance and it will only cost you $2,200,000.
A stunning 5,000 square-foot English-style residence in Kenilworth, Illinois, is currently on the market, offering its buyers 3 stories of “timeless elegance” with exquisite architectural details.
Built in 2007, the home has 6 bedrooms, 6 baths, 4 fireplaces with exceptional finishes, high-quality materials and craftsmanship, distinctive moldings, rich millwork, custom cut limestone, slate roof and copper gutters.
The entire main floor has 11-foot ceilings and the rest of the home has formal living, dining, family rooms. The kitchen is a wood model with top grade appliances, huge island and separate breakfast room. It also has a wine cellar, sauna and exercise room.
Its most striking feature, to us at least, is the resemblance of the home’s red brick exterior to the iconic 3-pointed Lubavitch World Headquarters at 770 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn, NY.
Replicas of 770 have been built around the world in Israel, Italy, Brazil and other countries, but they typically are built and used as synagogues and outreach centers. There has yet to be a Chabad family building a 770 replica as a home.
And there’s one more kicker to this offer: It’s only an 8-minute drive from the Chabad of Wilmette – Center for Jewish Life and Learning on Old Glenview Road, run by Rabbi Dovid and Rivke Flinkenstein.
