This dramatic 4 bedroom, 3.1 bathroom contemporary home sits atop a hill overlooking the neighborhood at the entrance to a cul-de-sac. A gleaming, newly refinished hardwood floor greets you upon entry and is awash in the natural light coming from windows in both the front and back of the house. A home office, complete with built-ins, wet bar and fireplace is just through the arched entryway on one side and the dining room with built-in buffet and new light fixture is on the other. The stunning hardwood floor runs throughout the main level, from the large, open kitchen and breakfast room to the family room and throughout the hallway. The kitchen has high-end stainless-steel appliances and a paneled refrigerator with water and ice dispenser. The wall of windows running from the dining room, through the kitchen, and into the family room fills the home with natural light. Upstairs features a grand primary suite with two separate, enormous walk-in closets and an updated primary bathroom with a white double vanity, separate shower and soaking tub. The three other bedrooms are spacious with an abundance of built-out closet space. The hall bathroom has double sinks, ample storage, and a bathtub/shower combination. A full upstairs laundry room adjacent to the primary bedroom makes living here easy. The lower level is ground level and features mudroom space, a large rec room, exercise room and full bathroom. This home is in the much-desired Wayne Thomas/Northwood Middle School area and is walking distance to playgrounds, schools, Metra train, nature trails, Lake Michigan through Fort Sheridan Forest Preserve, and vibrant downtown Highwood.
