Situated on one of Riverside's most sought-after streets is this exceptional 4-bedroom, 2.1-bathroom home, featuring exquisite original details & an abundance of living space. This home offers a striking balance of history, elegance, & the kind of comfort that can only be found at home. This historically landmarked special home is 1 of 3 iconic Havemeyer Cottages in the community, that exemplifies turn-of-the-century architecture. Throughout the home, you'll find perfectly-preserved details, like the library's original wood moldings, grand pocket door, double-hung windows & porte cochere. The first floor offers expansive & distinctive living spaces. The living room is classic style at its best, with gleaming hardwoods, a character-rich turret, & 1 of 4 wood-burning fireplaces found throughout the home. The front screened-in porch offers the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee & admire the surrounding greenery. The dining room is spacious enough for a 12-person dining table, anchored by a grand fireplace, & sure to host many special celebrations. Through the dining room's swinging doors, you'll find the kitchen. This space boasts reimagined cabinets, new backsplash, granite countertops, & stainless steel appliances. There's also a dedicated breakfast nook - perfect for everyday dining. Towards the back stairway, you'll find an expansive pantry and additional storage. On the second floor, you're first brought to the primary bedroom - a true suite with a wood-burning fireplace, updated ensuite bathroom, & a private screened-in porch. 2 additional bedrooms can also be found on this floor - each is sizable. You'll also find a dual family room & home office on this level. Through a second stairway, you'll find the finished attic, with another family room & the final bedroom. There's also a sizable storage room that can easily be converted into a 3rd full bath. The basement (unfinished but dry) hosts the laundry room, a dedicated workout room, a workshop & plenty of additional storage. Outdoors, the manicured landscape & a koi pond provide the perfect setting for both hosting & relaxing. This home is incredibly well-cared for; the owners completely reshingled the exterior, refinished the original hardwood floors, & painted inside & out. This home couldn't be closer to Riverside's picturesque downtown, featuring restaurants & bars (try Sawmill for lunch & La Barra or The Chew Chew for dinner)! The community also boasts parks, libraries, top-rated private & public schools, the Riverside Swim Club, & so much more. You're also just a short walk from the Riverside Metra for a quick commute downtown. Welcome to your dream home!
