Property Description

Nestled in the heart of Kenilworth, this delightful 3 bed / 3.5 bath home is tucked behind a cute white picket fence. Steps from the Kenilworth Metra stop and Sears School, the home & garage recently underwent a full roof replacement, including a new standing seam metal roof above the front porch, new gutters and downspouts, new 200 amp electrical panel and a brand new high efficiency NTI wi-fi enabled boiler. Wonderful layout provides for great entertaining space on the first floor, which includes a spacious living room, dining room, and beautifully sunlit family room with wood burning fireplace and custom built-in bookshelves. Lovely galley kitchen with newer stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and sunny breakfast room overlooking fenced-in backyard. 2nd floor includes three bedrooms with generous master suite that features spacious master bath with jetted whirlpool, double-sink, separate shower, and new skylight. Bedrooms two and three share a full bath. Comfortable lower level with full bath, great for in-law or nanny suite or recreation room for kids. Newer Marvin replacement windows throughout most of home. Two-car detached garage, and additional storage available in drop-down attic. Lovely back yard with deck (with hard piped gas for your new outdoor kitchen). Located within the award-winning K-8 Joseph Sears (38) and New Trier High School Districts (203) and steps from Kenilworth Beach, and the Green Bay Trail.
