Spectacular renovated Victorian on an over-sized, sunny, corner lot in the heart of Wilmette's most popular neighborhood. Steps to downtown Wilmette's vibrant restaurant scene, Metra commuter rail service and Central School. Absolutely the best walk-to-everything East Wilmette location coupled with a grand-sized, architecturally significant house. Space and light are the two words that best capture the house's essence - soaring 12' ceilings, abundant sunshine via the corner lot location and a floor plan that checks all of the boxes. You'll love the generous kitchen with enough counter space for several cooks, luxe appliances, large island to gather around and light-filled eating area overlooking the backyard. This part of the house also provides thoughtful organization with terrific pantry space and a well designed mudroom/laundry room. From entertainment-ready spaces to private office space this house delivers ease and coherence for how we live today. The second floor is comprised of five large bedrooms, a rarity in East Wilmette. Keep as separate sleeping spaces or let your imagination run and create a second floor study, a Pinterest-inspired dressing room, an art studio or a playroom where the Lego creations can live out in the open. The lower level provides casual, useful space with an extra-large recreation room in addition to an exercise room, wine cellar and storage. The grounds match the stature of the house: large fenced-in yard with dedicated areas for play, gardening and entertaining. We all crave outdoor spaces that are beautiful, easy and truly feel like an extension of the interior design - this is exactly what 1204 Forest provides via a large deck and screened gazebo, both with good access to the kitchen and mudroom. Of course the house has been expertly maintained with a careful eye to detail and upkeep providing peace of mind for the next stewards of this lovely property. Every house has an energy and this house flows with serenity thanks to a circular floor plan, natural light and luxurious quiet. Come see for yourself.
