Property Description

Have you ever dreamt of living in a Firehouse? Now is your chance! For the first time ever "Fire Station No. 1" in beautiful Fort Sheridan, (Highland Park. IL) is being offered for sale. The Fire Station was designed by celebrated architects Holabird and Roche in the late 1890's and completely renovated into a 5,400 sf, 5 Bedroom 4.5 Bath one of a kind single family home in 2004. The floor plan of the Fire Station creates an open loft feel that is the ultimate urban/suburban home. The soaring 2-story hipped-roof living room with original beadboard ceiling, museum-sized exposed brick walls and arched window and door openings are all lovingly restored to the time when the horse drawn engines stood ready to answer the fire alarm. The sunny kitchen is a chef's dream with space to create a gourmet feast or gather for a family meal in front of the Wood Burning Fireplace. It features Dacor Commercial Range, Sub Zero Refrigerator, abundant cabinets and pantries, enormous island with pasta sink, wine fridge, dining area, and two sets of French doors that open to the large shady deck. Work from home in the professional office with built-in Knoll desks, file cabinets, storage and separate entrance. The 1st floor bedroom suite with full bath is perfect for an au pair, in-law, teen, or workout room. Bamboo floors and radiant heat make all the living areas warm and inviting. With rooms that flow together through large openings and French doors, entertaining, family gatherings, and living your best life happens with ease. The bright 2nd floor contains 4 bedrooms and 3 baths - including the master suite complete with whirlpool, Body & Rain Shower and a balcony overlooking the park. Additional features include Solid Brick Construction that makes for near perfect sound attenuation; Bamboo Hardwood and Radiant Floor Heating; 3 additional HVAC zones with Nest thermostats for the most energy efficient climate control; Mudroom; 2nd floor Laundry Room; 3-car, oversized, attached garage with loads of additional storage; The large shady deck overlooking the Pond and Ravine is the perfect place to relax. Fort Sheridan is a former U.S. Cavalry Fort located on the Northshore between Lake Forest and Highland Park. It has over 1 1/2 miles of pristine Lake Michigan shoreline. After the fort closed in 1993, the historic buildings including the Fire Station, Stables, Officer Club, Barracks and others were restored to create a residential enclave that is part of Highland Park and the Highland Park School Districts. The Fire Station sits on a large corner lot adjacent to a Playground, Ravine, Pond, and Meadow at the heart of it all. Being able to just walk out your door to enjoy the Nature Trails, Beaches (including Dog Beach) wide open spaces, Walking & Bike Trails, Cross-Country Skiing, Openlands, and Forest Preserves make for a peaceful and active lifestyle. Wonderful shopping and restaurants in Downtown Highland Park, Lake Forest, and trendy Highwood are all minutes away and the Fort Sheridan Metra train stop is within walking distance! This is an exceptional oasis to enjoy life on Lake Michigan in a serene setting. Be sure to watch 3-D virtual tour and drone video tour.
