Tucked away on a leafy one-block stretch right off the lakefront, this enchanting historic gem on a wide 31' lot is the best surprise-a treat with delights at every turn. Extensive use of natural woods, stones & lighting creates a warm & inviting environment for everyday living & entertaining. A wonderful all-season enclosed front porch leads to an open & flexible first floor highlighted by upholstered built-in seating, elaborate & intricate molding, bookshelves, and a fabulous period fireplace. A large chef's kitchen with an enormous island, built-in banquette & working desk reflects the style of the house and elegantly leads to a series of sublimely lit & landscaped outdoor terraces & decks, creating a peaceful oasis in the heart of it all. A classic prairie staircase leads up to 3 good-sized bedrooms including a serene master suite w/sitting area and an additional office/den on the lower level. Both full baths have been recently renovated with care and style. Rare 2+ car garage. A country house in the City!
