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!
