This award-winning home with a stately iron fence and deep wraparound front porch commands the northeast corner of Lake Avenue & 8th Street. Renovated throughout, it is full of high-end amenities and carefully curated finishes. A 2005 gut renovation included replacement of plumbing and electric, as well as new walls, ceilings, and lighting. Then in 2009, architect Jeff Harting designed a significant expansion that seamlessly married the old with the new. Notably, a spectacular skylight now dominates a nuHaus kitchen with professional-grade appliances that serves as a hub for the home with its views to the bluestone terrace and adjacent family room with stone fireplace. In addition to the kitchen and family room, the expansion added a butler's pantry, breakfast room, second half-bath, and mudroom, plus a deep-pour basement with a full bath, a new side entrance off 8th Street, and a 3-car garage. At the same time, the outdoor space was redesigned with a private bluestone patio, an upper terrace, and lush landscaping. Highlights of this gracious home include a stunning original wood staircase, hardwood floors throughout, original rich wood pocket doors, large crown moldings, and leaded-glass windows. Four bedrooms/3 baths on the second level include a primary suite with custom built in, walk-in closet with island, and marble bath. The third level offers wonderfully versatile space that includes a full bath, two rooms that could be bedrooms, offices, or one of each, and a large bonus room. The basement adds a fifth full bath, large rec room, and tons of storage. This home has been beautifully reimagined with meticulous attention to detail. A phenomenal offering near beach, train, and town in the A++ Wilmette elementary and New Trier High School districts.
