Join us for an Open House on Sunday, September 1st, 2019 from 2 PM TO 4 PM. A Spacious, True Vintage Charmer on a Double-Wide Lot with Limitless Possibilities & Great Location!

On the east/street side you'll find the large gracious living room with its wood burning fireplace and an adjoining office/sunroom with windows on three sides. The separate dining with its direct kitchen access and a large adjacent family room are on the west side of the foyer.

Stairs from the foyer lead to the second floor with its wide upper hallway and two-bedroom wings separated by a relaxing library/study. The hallway leads to the master bedroom suite featuring wide base and crown moldings, a walk-in closet and full bath, and a family bath, second bedroom with built-in desk, and library/study with access to a second bedroom wing including two more large bedrooms.

Additional highlights include a large unfinished basement, 2.5-car garage with a separate garden/workroom providing space to expand to three-car garage parking, majestic mature trees/landscaping and lush perennial plants, ground cover and flowers.

With an ultra-convenient location close to nearby park, shopping, highway access, two equidistant Metra train lines and the choice of Deerfield or Highland Park High Schools, this is truly a unique opportunity not to miss. Estate Sale -- Property to be sold as is.
