Absolutely STUNNING old world charm! Step back in time and embrace the allure of this lovely historic home! Nine foot ceilings, pocket doors, wall-to-wall built-in book cases, built-in china cabinets, original hardwood flooring, restored woodwork throughout, and stained glass windows; this residence stands as a testament to the timeless American Foursquare architectural elegance. What was originally built as a three bedroom home, the original large front porch was later enclosed, and two more bedrooms and the foyer were added - totaling to five bedrooms, and two and a half baths! From the moment you step thru the front door, the intricate detail and unique charm of this home are evident! Upon entering, you will step into a large foyer that can be used as a sitting room, home office, or craft area. The living room exudes a sense of grandeur with its pocket doors, built-in floor to ceiling bookcases and a beautiful built-in, antique curio cabinet that evokes the sophistication of a bygone era. The dining room boasts a built-in china cabinet and a wall of windows. The recently renovated kitchen blends modern convenience with antique aesthetics, boasting an oversized workstation sink with insertable cutting board and strainer, custom cabinetry, under cabinet lighting, stainless steel appliances, and an adjacent baking center and pantry room. The first floor powder room is located conveniently off of the Kitchen. An enclosed porch in the back of the home offers storage, walls of windows, and plenty of space. The stairway is a show stopper! The original restored woodwork, stained glass windows and timeless wallpaper is breathtaking! There are sweet surprises around every-corner; a cedar chest at the foot of the stairs, original doorknobs, pass-through mail slot, hidden window in the stair-way closet, and many more! The second floor has a unique but functional layout. Two of the three bedrooms have attached bonus rooms. These rooms would be perfect as bedrooms, a nursery, office, playroom, or dressing room. The hallway features a built-in chest of drawers - great for linens! The second floor full bathroom offers a large walk in closet, built-in storage, and a porcelain bathtub with shower. More built-ins in the primary bedroom, as well as a large walk-in closet and attic access. The full attic can be used as a third story! There is plenty of room for an additional bedroom, lounge space, or storage. The full walk-out basement has a full bathroom with a stand-up shower, family room, work room, root cellar, and laundry. Step outside onto the expansive grounds with a hillside garden! Strawberries, roses, peonies, herbs, potatoes, tomatoes, raspberries, blackberries, and a Mulberry tree! Stairs align the hillside for easy access to your garden oasis. The backyard is fully fenced with two sheds for storage. This property is in the central hub of Historic Waukegan. Easy access to schools, public transit, Metra, Library, downtown Waukegan, local shopping, and dining. There is a park in every direction- Ray Bradbury, Washington, and Powell Parks are less than a block away! Owning this historic home means becoming a steward of history, preserving its legacy for future generations. It's more than just a house; it's a living connection to the past, a masterpiece that transcends time, and an embodiment of the charm and elegance of a bygone era. This home has been lived and loved in for many many years! Please see additional information tab for list of improvements and inclusions. SOLD AS-IS.
