This ideally-located village home underwent an extensive 9-month renovation in 2019, carefully maintaining its original charm while creating perfectly updated spaces for today. Redesigned by Z+O Architects, the entire second floor was taken to the studs and expanded to include a brand new primary suite, while the staircase was relocated to allow the kitchen to double in size and span the entire width of the house. The kitchen's new custom cabinets and floor to ceiling pantry, expansive center island, soapstone countertops and Viking and Sub-Zero appliances make for an open and inviting workspace and gathering spot. An adjacent mudroom offers convenient space for coats, shoes and storage. New Pella windows across the rear of the house allow the sunlight and views to pour in. For another cozy gathering spot, the living room offers a wood burning fireplace and wall of windows overlooking the mature perennial landscaping and welcoming bluestone patio. The first floor bedroom easily accommodates guests with an adjacent full bath, and is currently used as a private and quiet office space and den. Upstairs, the totally reconfigured second floor includes a new primary suite perched in the treetops with vaulted ceilings, dual walk-in Elfa closets, and private bath with heated floors. Two additional updated bedrooms retain their cozy charm while boasting custom blackout roller shades and custom Elfa closets. The hall bath is all new with a double sink, custom marble topped vanity, and heated floors. Attic space accessed from the bedroom provides more useful storage. The lower level is enjoyed as a family room, rec room, and exercise room, and includes a laundry area and convenient powder room. The lower level's access to the backyard allows for flexible use and offers a secondary mudroom area. Exterior storage thoughtfully built in during renovation provides an excellent spot for scooters, strollers, or outdoor gear and opens directly to the driveway. The backyard is a hidden gem with rebuilt fieldstone retaining walls, upper patio that doubles as parking, and a lush private setting. This expertly updated home is steps from downtown and Lake Ellyn, as well as excellent schools, parks, and the Metra station, allowing you to truly enjoy all that Glen Ellyn has to offer.
