Enjoy the best of Lake Bluff living in this picture perfect home that has been meticulously renovated and expanded from top to bottom, plus it is located just mere blocks from Lake Michigan. The floorplan offers a nice circular flow, which nicely facilitates day-to-day living and entertaining. It's easy to imagine holidays spent in the formal dining room with its lovely bay window or hosting future guests in the living room with a stately fireplace and its own bay window flanked by built-in bookcases. Towards the back of the house, you'll find the renovated kitchen, brought to life by timeless white wood cabinetry, butcher block island, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, warming drawer, granite countertops and Hans Grohe fixtures. Casual dining options include a breakfast bar and eat-in table space with a banquette. The spacious family room lets in abundant natural light through the large windows overlooking the private backyard. Upstairs, you will find laundry and four bedrooms, including an expanded primary suite with an incredible walk-in closet, remote-controlled gas fireplace, built-in bookshelves and a luxurious bath graced with Carrera marble floor and counters, double vanities, heated floor, jetted tub and separate shower. A bonus finished third-floor office is attached to the primary suite, complete with cozy window seats set into the dormers and an easily accessible storage area above the stairs. The finished lower level provides plenty of extra space for year-round enjoyment with a rec room, bar area, flexible e-learning or hobby space, storage and built-ins. Additional amenities include a convenient mudroom with built-in bench seating and a nicely finished detached two-car garage. A wonderful re-landscaped backyard, completely fenced in, allows for privacy and open space that is primed for entertaining. This home is teeming with so many thoughtful touches and upgrades, including traditional wainscoting, mouldings, hardwood floors and more. Don't miss the chance to experience it for yourself.
