Description

Welcome to a true confluence of old world charm and craftsmanship, modern systems and upgrades, and urban sophistication with rural sensibilities . High ceilings, random width flooring, oversized windows, and large rooms punctuate all of the very distinct spaces of this 1850+G-s farmhouse. Entering the center hall, there is a bright living room to the right with a marble mantled fireplace and windows offering views of the rear yard. Left of the hall lies a study/family room with a second fireplace and access to the formal dining room with a built in china cabinet and stenciled accents to the floors perimeter. The butlers pantry with back stairs, built-ins and custom bar provides great storage and the perfect place to make an inspired cocktail! Designed for those who love to cook, the kitchen offers a large center island, Miele wall ovens, electric cook top, stainless refrigerator, ample cabinet space, open shelving, and rustic ceramic tile flooring. Upstairs features a main bedroom with walk in closet and beautiful, brand new en-suite bath. Across the hall is a second bedroom which shares a great, brand new bath with the third bedroom, currently in use as a TV room/ family room. This room includes a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, bay of closets, back stairs, and playful loft space which could be used for anything from office to sleep space to meditation.Last and certainly not least, the third floor offers a large beautiful bedroom with a-framed ceiling and creatively updated bathroom. The grounds of the property are truly inspired and will take your breath away. Mature perennial beds are teeming with perfectly orchestrated blooms of color which you can enjoy along walking paths that meander through, or sit on the heated outdoor patio or brick terrace while having your morning coffee or dinner with friends and family. Driveway parking and large walk out basement round out this amazing property. Recent improvements are many and include two and a half completely new baths, new heat and air conditioning, and new windows. Located near public transportation, GFS, Uncle Bobbie's Coffee, and Lasalle College.
