Don't miss this opportunity to own a gem on the North Shore. This family-friendly home is at the perfect location on a quiet, one-block dead-end street halfway between downtown Highland Park and Highwood, just three blocks from the high school and about seven blocks from the lake. The current owners were torn between selling the house or expanding the second floor to include four bedrooms with a master suite (they've had drawings made and estimates - it's possible!). The current 3-bedroom home sits on a deep lot surrounded by mature oaks, shagbark hickory and walnut trees, with lots of songbirds. Located near the HP and HW Metra stations, HP hospital, many parks, golf courses, beaches and restaurants, the neighbors are great and the bike ride to concerts at Ravinia is fun even with young kids. The house has great history, but also many recent improvements including a rehabbed wood-burning fireplace, stainless steel refrigerator and stove, hot water heater and sump pump, and a new roof and siding (not to mention the 2009 installation of a foundation perimeter drain system that has kept the basement completely dry ever since). This is the perfect townhouse alternative for a small family (the current owners recently expanded to 3 kids and need just a little more space) or for empty-nesters who want a home that their grandkids will want to visit. With hardwood floors throughout and modern windows with plenty of sunshine, this solidly-built Highland Park classic is not to be missed! The house is move-in ready and will feel like home very quickly for the next owners. Future possibilities include a walk-in closet on the second floor that could be dormered into another bedroom, or the entire second floor could be expanded above the one-story brick addition with four bedrooms and two full baths. The basement could also be finished adding to a great old house that was built to last for many lifetimes.
