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 foyer with custom cabinets, bench and tiled floor. Large living room with a slate fireplace currently used as a large formal dining room. The newly updated kitchen features white cabinets with new hardware, natural quartzite countertops, stainless steel appliances, double-oven, tiled backsplash, and an eating area. The adjoining 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 large organized 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. The brand new hall bathroom (2020) features a double sink vanity, walk-in shower, white subway tile with modern tile accents, and Kohler/Grohe fixtures. The third floor was remodeled and designed to be a home office/sitting room and is currently a teenager's bedroom retreat. The basement features a new laundry room with custom cabinetry, a recreation room, arts and craft area and utility room. The backyard includes a raised wooden deck, photographic two-story cedar-sided garage reminiscent of the Swedish countryside with additional loft storage on the second floor, a second deck with a hot tub, and well-appointed professional landscaping and lawn. Additional improvements include many newer windows, a buried electric and cable lines, updated electricity and plumbing, exterior drainage, sump pump, recently (2017) painted exterior, and hardwood floors throughout.
