This beautifully updated, five bedroom/four and a half bath home is perfectly situated on a corner lot in prime East Wilmette. The desirable front porch leads into the center entry foyer with original millwork, high ceilings and gorgeous hardwood flooring throughout. The expansive formal living room is configured with two seating areas and oversized windows and a built-in buffet. The formal dining room can easily handle a table to seat 12 and showcases a wood burning fireplace with original detailing and stunning windows offering terrific natural light. The back of the home was expanded and opened up in 2015 creating a kitchen/family room, new mudroom and dug out basement. This masterful renovation flows seamlessly into the rest of the home beautifully marrying the old with the new. The second floor boasts a sunroom/office, 2 bedrooms with a renovated hallway bathroom, laundry and a luxurious primary suite with walk-in closet and dreamy bathroom with double vanities, walk-in shower, soaking tub and private water closet. The third floor provides two additional bedrooms, an updated bathroom and bonus space for hangout. The basement features a large dug out area, currently being used as a gym, but could also be the main rec room area, as well two cozy nooks for play, gaming or just hanging out. In addition there is a full bath, storage/"Costco" closet and utility room with ample room for extra storage. The lushly landscaped and smartly hardscaped yard provides an outdoor oasis to be enjoyed in all seasons. The kitchen/family rooms lead out to a raised deck with steps down to a patio with a firepit. The fully fenced yard and charming one car garage with carport provides covered parking for two and the tip top East Wilmette location (just a few short blocks to Central School, Gillson Beach, town, train, restaurants +++) offers everything you could possibly want plus more!
