PRAIRIE-STYLE - 4,957 SQ/FT - 5 BR, 5 BTH
Built in 1962, this Prairie-style home has nice modern updates, yet it retains lots of charm and character from the original design, such as hardwood floors in the family room and den, marble floors in the foyer and glass panels that architectural interest dividing the foyer and the living room. This is a great layout offering large spaces for gatherings and more intimate spaces for a quiet night at home. The kitchen has been completely updated with new cabinets, granite counters, tile floors, high-end, gas cook top, built-in oven and a center island that has room for at least five seats. The master bath also has been renovated to a modern, spa-like bath with jetted tub, walk-in, tile shower, granite counters, travertine floors and more. An enclosed terrace off the master is a great place to unwind. There’s a large sunroom off the den.
There are three bedrooms in what the sellers refer to as the kids’ wing. Two bedrooms share a jack-and-jill bath, while the third bedroom has a private bath and an area with built-in desk and storage.
Because of the design, the house is on multiple levels. The lower level has a rec room, bedroom and full bath. With several, above-ground windows this is not a traditional basement. There is a basement on the bottom level, which has an exercise room, storage and another full bath. There is great storage throughout the house, including built-ins in the bedroom closets.
The home has zoned heating and cooling to help reduce energy costs. One unit was replaced in 2016, and two others are less than five years old. Other updates included new carpet in the bedrooms, new floor in the lower-level bath, updated landscaping, new windows in the dining room and kitchen.
The sellers say they hate to leave this friendly, quiet neighborhood, which has a variety of architecture styles. They’ve loved raising their family in this home and hosting parties and family gatherings. Take a virtual tour.
