Set on a magnificent, professionally landscaped lot, over 1/3 of an acre lot, with a backyard that offers privacy, ample lawn for recreation, forest views and a gazebo for gathering. The "blue" house will charm you upon arrival with great curb appeal and a charming patio for two in front for your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. This stately home invites you to appreciate the design, detail, updates and warmth that is associated with quality construction that has been renovated, restored & improved throughout the last 100 years. The home's interior was just refreshed with new paint, closets and lighting. The living room is surrounded by south and west-facing windows and is centered on a beautiful wood burning fireplace. Step down into another sun-filled room that can become the home school room, the office or a family room. The sunroom, which could also be an office or homework room, adjacent to the dining room, draws you to the spectacular fenced back yard, newer slate patio & screened gazebo. The Chef's kitchen is beautifully designed with outstanding use of the space for function and design, and direct access to the slate patio provides for easy al fresco dining. The side entrance has a terrific mud room space, with a powder room, and leads to a fenced dog run with a brick patio and wrought iron gate. Up the stairs, off the landing, is the first bedroom with a Jack/Jill updated bath shared with a very large bedroom with window seat and double closets. A generous bedroom on the south side of the home shares a brand new bathroom with the 4th bedroom on the 2nd floor - this could be made into a primary suite. The third floor is a wonderful suite with a private bath, currently used as the primary suite. There are two walk-in closets and incredible storage space as well. The full finished basement includes a recreation/game room, a beautiful full bath, an updated kitchenette, a wine cellar, the laundry room and a storage room which could be used as a small exercise space. The home is conveniently located 1 block from the lake, walking distance to town, the Glencoe beach, walking & biking trails, Ravinia, the Botanic Gardens, schools, shopping and so much more.
