Wilmette, Illinois 60091
Wilmette's Kenilworth Gardens is a lively and very welcoming community. This classic brick home, located on a beautiful corner lot of Greenwood Ave. and 21st Street, is in easy walking distance to Harper School (K-4) and Highcrest Middle School (5-6). A Montessori preschool is just a block away, as is inviting Mallinckrodt Park. Built in 1938 it has been lovingly renovated over several years by its current only third owners to fully suit today's family life styles while preserving unique architectural details of the original house. Two friendly copper gargoyles greet you from above the entrance door. The inviting foyer in the center of the home still has the original telephone nook. The first floor features a large living room with wood-burning fire-place and built-ins, a family room, a formal dining room, a white kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The adjoining breakfast room has views of the yard and children's play area. Access to the patio and yard is from the kitchen through the “mud room.” - The second floor has four corner bedrooms and three classic white bathrooms. The home has beautiful hardwood floors throughout the first and second floors. The doors still have original unique hardware. - The play room and office in the walk-out basement have wainscoting and are carpeted. - There are two flood-control systems, copper gutters, and an in-ground sprinkler system. The yard is fenced in. The 2.5-car detached garage is only a few steps from the back entrance. Absolutely move-in condition!
