Property Description

Nestled in the heart of Kenilworth, this 3 bed + 1 bsmt bed / 3.5 bath single-family home is tucked behind a cute white picket fence and beautiful mature Oak. Steps from the Kenilworth Metra stop and Sears School, the home & garage recently (November 2020) underwent a full roof replacement, including a new standing seam metal above the front porch. Additionally, there are newer refinished floors, kitchen finishes, light fixtures, fresh paint, and Marvin windows. Nice 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 skylight. Bedrooms two and three share a full bath. Comfortable lower level great for in-law or nanny, featuring a full bedroom or recreation room for kids, full bath, and separate laundry room. Two-car detached garage, and additional storage available in drop-down attic. Located within the award-winning K-8 Joseph Sears (38) and New Trier High School Districts (203) and steps from Green Bay Road, Kenilworth Metra Station, Kenilworth Beach, and the Green Bay Trail.
