Perched on a hill on Ridge Avenue in the Ridge Historic District, this home is everything today's discerning buyer is looking for. Checks all the boxes! This fabulous Hemphill home has been completely renovated top to bottom, inside and out. So much flexible living space, excellent floor plan, perfect for entertaining as well as everyday family living. From the lower level to the third level of this multi-level home, you will enjoy gorgeous finishes and fixtures throughout, including tile, cabinetry, light fixtures, recessed lighting, flooring, windows, mechanicals, appliances, and much more. The finished lower level offers a terrific family room / rec room space, with a gas-start/wood-burning fireplace, full bath, and a 5th bedroom or office . The attached, generous 2 car garage can be conveniently accessed through the mud/laundry room area. There is also an unfinished sub-basement space where some mechanicals are located, room for additional storage if desired. The main level of the home is just perfect, a light-filled open living room with gas start/wood burning fireplace, opens to the dining room, and flows nicely to the inviting kitchen. The kitchen is a sheer delight, generous cabinet and counter space, top of the line appliances, including a six burner gas Wolf stove with large oven. There is an additional full sized Wolf oven and microwave built into the wall. Such an inviting kitchen to cook, dine, and hang out in either sitting at the island, or at the table/banquette space. A charming powder room rounds out the first level. A few steps up brings you to the second level, where there are two spacious bedrooms and a very attractive full bath. A few more steps takes you to the third level, offering a bright and airy primary bedroom area, complete with a sophisticated primary bath, and so much closet space! Also on the third level there is an additional bedroom, with an en-suite full bath, and a charming office space/reading nook area as a nice bonus. Additional full sized washer and dryer on the third level. There is easy access to an unfinished attic space with new sprayed-in insulation, housing a new additional HVAC unit. The outdoor space is so private and enjoyable! From the living room there are brand new patio sliding doors opening out to the new paver patio and yard. The yard has just recently been completely fenced in, along with fresh asphalt on the driveway. There is plenty of room for several additional cars on the driveway. 1408 Ridge is such a convenient walk-to-everything location, including all downtown Evanston has to offer - shops, restaurants, transportation, schools, and more. There is not a single thing to do in this fabulous home but move in and enjoy. This is a 10!
