RECIPIENT OF THE WINNETKA PRESERVATION AWARD, this 5 bedroom, 3.2 bath, 4-level, RENOVATED, historically accurate New England Colonial is EXCEPTIONAL in every way. Perfectly set back from the road on a tree-lined street, this meticulously maintained home allows for privacy in the center of a sought-after Hubbard Woods neighborhood where 3 nursery schools, K-8 schools, 2 downtown areas, Lake Michigan, athletic fields, paddle, golf, tennis, and the train station are just a walk or short bike ride away. The heart of this home boasts an enormous kitchen/family room combination with a five-burner Wolf gas range, double ovens, extensive dovetail cabinetry, floor to ceiling pantry, black granite countertops, a gas fireplace, custom built-ins and 3 sets of French doors leading out to a covered two-tiered blue stone patio. Off the family room on one side is a 3-season, bluestone porch overlooking a private and extensively landscaped yard by notable Red Spade Landscape Architect. Off the other side of the family room is a side entrance attached to a family-friendly mudroom with custom cubbies just steps away from a newly rebuilt 2.5 car garage wired for electric charging along with a mezzanine storage area. Adjacent to the kitchen, find a picturesque breakfast/dining room overlooking the front yard for casual or formal dining depending on lifestyle. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace, beautiful millwork and 2 more sets of French doors leading out to a SECOND BLUE STONE PATIO and pergola. The second floor features a serene primary suite with a gas fireplace, his and her closets, double sinks, dual-head steam shower and jacuzzi tub. Three more nicely scaled bedrooms, one of which is ensuite, complete the second floor. On the third level, find a 5th bedroom and dedicated private office or 6th bedroom and accessible attic storage space. The lower level features a second, enormous family room complete with a kitchenette perfect for playdates, teenagers or Saturday college football parties. You will also find a SECOND, DEDICATED OFFICE, a workout area, laundry room, 1/2 bath and more storage. Other notable features include comprehensively updated mechanical systems, new Marvin double pane windows throughout, an in-ground sprinkler system, a whole house generator, and 2020 taxes of $16,742.
