Property Description

Picturesque 5 bedroom and 3.1 bathroom renovated and modernized colonial in a pleasantly tucked away neighborhood of northeast Evanston within walking distance to the Central and Linden St "El" stations, Lighthouse Beach, Orrington Elementary School, and retail. Attractive cedar shake exterior with newly built custom stone entrance, and bluestone stoop with modern metal railings. Enter the home into the new entry mudroom foyer with custom lockers and tiled floor. Large living room with a slate fireplace currently used as a formal dining room. The newly updated kitchen features white cabinets with new hardware, natural quartzite countertops, stainless steel appliances, double-oven, fashionable backsplash, and an attached breakfast nook. The attached family room and additional dining area lead to a screened-in three-season porch that is perfect for relaxing on summer days and adjacent to a raised deck. The first floor includes a powder room and a second mudroom at the side entrance. The second floor features the primary bedroom with vaulted ceilings, tons of natural light through expansive windows, a primary bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a walk-in closet. There are three additional bedrooms, including one with an ensuite bathroom. A brand new gorgeous hall bathroom by Normandy Builders is currently being completed and will include a double sink vanity, walk-in shower, white subway tile and modern tile accents, and Kohler/Grohe fixtures. The third floor was expertly completed to be a home office and is now used as a perfect teenager's bedroom escape with plenty of space for a home office, lounge area, and bedroom. The basement features a new laundry room with custom cabinetry, a recreation room, and a game or arts and craft area. The backyard includes a raised wooden deck, photographic two-story cedar-sided garage reminiscent of the Swedish countryside with additional storage on the second floor, a second deck with a hot tub, and well-appointed professional landscaping and lawn. Additional improvements include newer windows throughout, a buried electric and cable lines, updated electricity and plumbing, newer roof, exterior drainage, sump pump, recently (2017) painted exterior, and hardwood floors throughout. The fireplace is being sold "as-is" as the current owners have never used it and are unaware of any issues.
