This meticulously expanded and renovated Victorian sits on a luxuriously landscaped and oversized property just steps from everything that draws you to vibrant La Grange! With modern renovations to include open concept living areas, perfectly private office spaces, and fabulous kitchen and bathroom designs (including one of the best hall bathrooms we've ever seen), this home is a showcase of how to live well with a blend of luxury, style and comfort. As only the most well-renovated homes of our historical town are, this incredible 4-level home is both visually appealing and has been meticulously mechanically upgraded to provide a modern living experience in a vintage home of character. The first floor features very generously-sized rooms including a sun-filled double-parlor/living room with a gas fireplace, a separate dining room with a built-in dry bar, and a true chef's kitchen with an expansive quartzite island and high-end appliances (SubZero and Viking) which opens to the breakfast room area and family room with a handsome gas fireplace. There's even a mudroom, two staircases and a full bathroom on the first floor. Upstairs features five bedrooms including a second floor primary suite with a walk-in closet and large bathroom with a separate shower and tub, and a huge third floor bedroom suite with hardwood floors, high ceilings and another private full bath. The second floor hall bathroom is simply ingenious with a perfectly styled dressing area that features built-in drawers and shelves, a community sink area, separate water closet room, and separate walk-in shower room, which all together provide the absolute best way to manage multiple household members in a shared bathroom without all the drama - it's a must-see! The finished basement level features a second family room area with a gas fireplace and built-desk area, a fabulously huge game room with space for a pool table (INCLUDED) and ping pong table, extensive storage space and so much more. If you love the outdoors, then you'll love the gorgeous front porch, party-sized side porch and paver patio with a built-in firepit in the sprawling fenced yard. The oversized two car garage features a walk-up to plenty of storage in the second floor. This home features all the extras you need and want: two furnace/central air systems, three sump pumps with drain tile and backup pumps (2014), plumbing and electrical systems that were updated/upgraded in the early 2000s as part of a major renovation which included buried electrical line to the utility junction, repairs to the sewer line including a new exterior clean-out added (2017), new garage doors and motors (2018), kitchen remodel (2019), second floor hall bath remodel (2020), third floor bathroom remodel (2018), whole house fan with remote and attic vent fan (2015), porch and deck painted (2022). You'll love moving right in and enjoying the summer close to downtown La Grange - walk for your morning coffee, see a movie in the soon-to-be-renovated theatre, experience some of the best restaurants in the suburbs, grab a book at the library around the corner, or head to the weekly farmers market and carry your haul right home. There's so much to do that can enhance your way of life just a few blocks of this impressive home. Highly regarded Cossitt Elementary school is just down the block, the Metra is just a few blocks more. If enjoying the simple things in life is your style, then this home and its location just might take your breath away. Don't miss your opportunity to live well in one the most impressive homes in the best location of La Grange!
