Property Description

Back on the Market! Contract cancelled because buyers were not able to sell their home. Complete Gut Rehab + Rebuild of Idyllic Farmhouse across from Washington School. Open, 3+ bedroom, 2.5 bath floor plan with panoramic views of the future fields of the new Robert Crown Community Center. Even better than a new home, the charm of this 1911 Farmhouse remains intact while offering the conveniences, warranties, and assurances of new construction. You will be amazed by the spaciousness and openness! An Entertainer's dream with ample room for large dining table, bar seating and space for additional breakfast table overlooking outdoor pergola. Functional and beautiful kitchen boasts spectacular quartzite counters and Pro Bertazzoni appliances. Second floor showcases new dormers with vaulted ceilings throughout. Versatile Flex room can be a peaceful sitting room, office, 4th bedroom or even bath! Large, open Rec Room + Bedroom on lower level with full height ceilings and separate laundry room. Thoughtful details throughout include shiplap, Cole & Sons wallpaper and cheerful mudroom with custom lockers and patterned floor tile. Outside, enjoy huge corner yard with elevated deck and abundant southern light- perfect for gardening entertaining and play. No expense spared--this home is clad in Hardie siding with new roof, spray foam insulation, all new plumbing and 200 AMP electric and dual zone heating/cooling systems! Home is presented by Evanston-based Design/Build team of Woodwright Dev. & Sisk Design. (Agent is spouse of builder)
