About this home

This incredibly charming, brick and cedar home sits on a wide lot, just a few blocks from the lake! Its striking curb appeal is further enhanced with extensive, mature landscaping and natural stone walkways and patio. With five bedrooms and 3.5 baths, this home offers maximum flexibility for families with children, as well as those needing a home office or gym space. Beautiful hardwood floors cover the majority of the first and second floor. The large family room opens to the expansive backyard and sits adjacent to the kitchen which features stainless steel appliances and marble countertops. A secondary family room on the first floor offers additional, versatile space. In 2018 the basement was completely gutted and transformed into a beautiful and bright space large enough for both a play room and recreation area. Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom features a fireplace and walk-in closet with custom built-ins. Additional improvements include all new window treatments and light fixtures, new paint throughout, new carpet in the secondary family room and many new mechanicals. Move right in and enjoy east Lake Bluff living at its finest - close to the lake, downtown Lake Bluff, Metra, parks, and schools.
