Opportunity knocks at this rarely available and historically significant home. Built by one of the founders of the Village of Wilmette in 1895, this home has only had one previous owner. A Victorian gem that features unique cupola-style architecture, beautifully crafted oak woodwork and the original oak flooring. Other period traits include a wood-burning fireplace faceted with period tiles and an oak mantel in the living room, beveled glass in the outer front door, and charming detail in the bay window near the stairs, formal dining and a full pantry. There's a full, unfinished attic- blank palette for a modern family with imagination. The house sits on a 50X200 foot lot---ample room for expansion while maintaining large backyard. A short 2 blocks to Wilmette's Central Elementary School, 4 blocks to Village shopping and the Metra, and 7-block walk to Lake Michigan. Design lovers and rehabbers do not miss this once in a life time chance to shape this home in your vision.
