Wait no longer - this is the home you have been waiting for to come onto the market! Beautifully renovated home on a gorgeous acre lot! You are sure to be impressed with the light and bright open floor plan the moment you walk through the door. The first floor has undergone a massive renovation (2015, $200K) including the relocation of the kitchen which now overlooks the amazing backyard! The kitchen is every chef's dream with a large quartz island, high-end stainless steel appliances, slate floor, large eating area, and a cozy two-sided white brick fireplace. The open concept of the dining, living and family room areas allow for ideal entertaining space and include gorgeous hardwood and slate floors, brick fireplace, recessed lights, skylights and plenty of natural light!

Like the other bathrooms, the 2nd floor hall bath looks like it popped out of a magazine - beautifully renovated! The finished basement offers even more living space with recreational areas and tons of storage (stubbed for a 4th bathroom too!)! Private, scenic acre property with 2 patio areas - you will feel like you are on vacation sitting in your own backyard! Roof new in 2014, new zoned HVAC in 2018. Exterior recently painted. This is truly a turn-key home - - just move in and enjoy! The location is fantastic as well with super convenient access to the major roads and a quick drive to shopping/restaurants in Vernon Hills, west Lake Forest and downtown Libertyville!
