GREAT PRICE FOR EAST LAKE BLUFF! Looking for a perfect-sized home and yard to transform to fit your lifestyle? This delightful home in the heart of popular east Lake Bluff is an easy walk or bike ride everywhere, in an ideal location midway between town, the beach, the train, and convenient to schools, parks, ball fields, tennis, restaurants, golf, paddle tennis, the Rec Center and more! Sunny and spacious, this brick and cedar colonial sits on a secluded and over-sized lot (66' x 140'), with plenty of room for backyard fun in the fenced yard, with a deck, large shade trees and a sunny perennial garden to enjoy. Maybe you'll want to add a fire pit ...? A swimming pool might possibly fit, too ...? Meanwhile, the welcoming front porch is wonderful for watching the world go by (and for "contact-free deliveries!"). The double front doors lead to a gracious Foyer with large guest closet. The spacious Living Room -- overlooking both front and back yards -- features hardwood under carpet and a fireplace with gas logs; it opens to the spacious separate Dining Room. The Kitchen is sunny and bright and is open to the generous south-facing Family Room, which features French sliding doors to the deck and yard. There is a powder room and a first floor utility room with washer and dryer, plus a mudroom closet and another door to the yard. Upstairs, the Primary Bedroom is over-sized, with a sitting area and walk-in closet (7' x 6'); there is hard wood under the carpet. Three more Family Bedrooms are ample, have good closet space and all have hardwood under carpet; they share a hall bath. The Basement has a Rec Room area, plus storage and a partial crawl space. The 2+ car garage is attached and features a large storage closet (8' x 7') for extra "stuff". (Note: That storage closet also backs to the powder room, potentially allowing for construction of an expanded first floor full bath, if ever desired.) This home is being sold "As Is", is in an estate, and has had the same owner since 1967. Recent updates include a New Roof (2020); New Gutters (2020); New Attic Fan (2020); Driveway Seal Coating (2020), New Furnace (2016). It's time to make this long-time "Happy Home" your own!
