PUBLIC POOLS ARE CLOSED...YOUR POOL IS OPEN!! THE WHOLE FAMILY WILL BE TIRED AT THE END OF THE DAY AND GO TO BED WITH SMILES ON THEIR FACES AFTER SWIMMING & PLAYING YARD GAMES!! THERE'S MORE GOOD NEWS... THE FULL APARTMENT WITH BATH ABOVE THE GARAGE IS THE IDEAL LOCATION TO WORK FROM HOME. Village Stunner!! One of the most beautiful homes on a double lot on arguably the most sought-after street in the Village. A previous $500K renovation brought the home up to today's standards while preserving the original charm of this historic home. What makes Lake Street a perennially sought after street? The obvious reasons are the charm and curb appeal of the homes, proximity to Village dining/shopping, easy walk to Metra, and the easy walk for kids to one of the top rated elementary schools, Hough Street School, which is a true neighborhood school in every dimension! What is more subtle is the flavor of the neighborhood on Lake Street. Residents enjoy parties including 4th of July, Halloween and even food truck parties. Neighbors share Men's and Ladies' Nights Out and the Christmas Eve Luminaria is a sight to behold! Sit on your front porch as neighbors stroll by to grab a glass of wine or dinner at the many restaurants just steps away. On top of all of this is how stunning this gorgeous home is...EVERYTHING has been updated while the character remains! From the wide plank floors on both levels to the original oversized pocket doors between the dining room and living room/library and plantation shutters throughout most of the home, no detail has been overlooked. Parties will overflow from the dining room to the gazebo off the side entry foyer as well as to the stone patio beyond. Kids will run around with friends on summer evenings chasing fireflies (if you can coerce them out of the pool with slide!). A removable child safety fence around the pool insures everyone will be safe! Inside the beautiful white chef's kitchen is lined with cabinets and storage galore. This kitchen is designed for multiple family members to cook together and is likewise outfitted to entertain a crowd with 2 Bosch dishwashers, 2 trash/recycling pull-outs, disposals on both the main sink and the vegetable prep sink, Wolf 6-burner professional cook-top with griddle and custom hood, double Wolf ovens, 2 Sub-0 units, thick marble counters, Built-in Miele coffee station, & Sub-0 wine refrigerator. The spacious mudroom is lined with cubbie cabinets to store all of your winter wear. What is even more unusual for a historic home is the family room addition that is open to the kitchen. The home comes with 3 wall-mounted tvs and a Sonos system both inside and outside. Upstairs the master retreat is spacious with his/hers walk-in closets, a romantic fireplace, a balcony overlooking the pool, and a beautiful spa bath. The bath has a double vanity with limestone counter, skylight, bubble tub, walk-in shower with stone walls, rainfall shower head and body sprays, separate water closet and make sure you see the built-in towel warmer in the cabinet! 3 additional bedrooms, a totally updated hall bath and upstairs laundry room make day-to-day living a breeze. The lower English level has high ceilings in the area under the family room addition and sunlight floods the space with natural light. An added bonus is the full apartment with living area, kitchenette and full bath over the garage. This is an ideal spot to work from home, or house family and friends when visiting. This home is in-district for Park District services so take advantage of kiddo's programs and the newer health club. If you've been dreaming of a perfect Village home in an ideal location, stop dreaming and make this home your own! A copy of the brochure for this listing is available on the atproperties website.
