This warm and inviting home sits in one of the best locations in town - southeast Evanston - Just steps to the lake, to Northwestern University and to downtown Evanston. Surprisingly large, the 1st floor has a grand foyer entry and 5 spacious rooms including a living room and a library (great for a home office, or home schooling), a big eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room and a family room. With 10 foot ceilings and lots of big windows this first floor is light, bright comfortable and roomy. The living room features a handsome fireplace and French doors that open to the front porch. The kitchen has loads of workspace, stainless steel counters, great storage, a big center island, sliding doors to a deck (perfect for your barbeque and eating al fresco) and a mudroom entry off to the side. The 2nd floor has 5 large bedrooms, an updated hall bath and includes a big primary suite with vaulted ceilings, a walk-in closet and an updated bathroom. Rarely do you find a finished basement like this - 2 recreation room areas, a tile space for your exercise bike and treadmill, an office (currently used as a 6th bedroom), a large and well-lit laundry area plus an updated full bathroom! Nicely landscaped yard and views of the lush Mather gardens. Many recent improvements over the last several years including a new roof and extensive landscaping. A gorgeous home, well cared for and loved! Enjoy life near the lake - paddle boarding, swimming, open spaces, parks, bike path and more. Walk to the lake, NU and downtown... Love where you live!
