Gorgeous Prairie-style Landmark home in coveted south/east location with loads of updates; just a short walk to shopping, schools, parks, and the lake!

The sweet front porch welcomes friends and neighbors to relax. Inside a fantastic circular floor plan draws you to the highlight of the home: the open kitchen/dining/family room space spans the width of the home, overlooking the large tiered patio, hot tub, gardens and yard.

Off the front foyer is an expansive living room with two-sided fireplace and built-in seating bench accented by beautiful stained glass windows. The oak-paneled formal dining room sits across from the living...

room with coffered ceilings and leaded glass windows. The thoughtful floor plan allows for many optional configurations, with the eating area off the kitchen able to accommodate an additional 12+ diners. The formal dining room works equally well as an office/study, den, or a music room. Previous owners even had their dining table in the living room at holidays so up to 24 folks could celebrate near the piano!

The family room is open to the spacious eating area and dream kitchen. Incredibly functional in design, the kitchen offers excellent work and storage space. Custom Amish cabinetry, a Wolf stove with Viking exhaust hood, Sub-Zero fridge, extra deep main sink, prep sink, and a large island with seating for four are just a few of the features. From the open kitchen you have views of the eating area and family room with custom-designed built-ins, more stained glass windows and the two-sided fireplace. In colder weather, you'll love the in-floor radiant heat under the slate floor in the kitchen/family room addition and 1st floor bathroom. Large windows and French doors line the back of the home, allowing easy access to the outside patio and year-round enjoyment of the ever-changing seasons.

First floor full bath with a walk-in shower sits off the hallway that leads to the staircase to the second floor where you'll find three guest bedrooms, a full bath, and the primary suite. The largest of the guest bedrooms faces east and has lots of windows with natural light pouring in. The primary also faces east and gets loads of warm morning light. It's like living in a treehouse! You'll find two walk-in closets, a bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower.

During the renovation and addition, a huge basement space was added to the original footprint of the home with 10ft ceilings, new electrical and plumbing. The original part of the basement can work as an exercise space or a lower level office and includes lots of storage, laundry and a powder room. A special home - true artisan craftsmanship throughout and nothing was overlooked during the architecturally-sensitive renovation.

Not to be overlooked is the three-car garage - great for storing bikes, paddleboards and kayaks - and a separate one-car garage suitable for rental or additional storage. Tear off roof in 2021 and professionally landscaped.

Unbeatable location: walk to parks, Lincoln elementary and Nichols middle schools, Main Street shops/restaurants, Metra/EL and the LAKE! Love where you live!
