My Notes

    Simply sensational! This stunning 5,000+ square foot east Glencoe 5+ bedroom beauty has been completely renovated and expanded and is set back on a fabulous oversized lot! Built in 1924 this exceptional home captures all the charming features of yesteryear with its high ceilings, exquisite moldings and curved archways which blends beautifully with all the high-end amenities so sought after today such as a gorgeous gourmet kitchen, huge family/great & sun rooms and sumptuous master suite to name just a few! And it enjoys an absolutely unbeatable location just blocks to the beach, train and town and is right across the street from an intimate park with tot lot and two tennis courts! It just doesn’t get any better!      A circular drive and pretty portico provides a welcoming entrance to the gracious foyer with original mahogany turned staircase. Step into the elegant living room and be impressed; a marble fireplace is flanked by illuminated custom built-ins and two sets of French doors open to a sun-filled office. Nearby is the banquet-sized formal dining room which adjoins the beautiful kitchen and opens on to the sun room.      Gourmet cooks will love the super-sized kitchen! Attractive all-white cabinets are everywhere and there is a big center island as well as a breakfast bar and a large eating area, too. Professional appliances are throughout and all of this opens to the magnificent family room!      WOW! The family room has spectacular great room proportions! Dramatic vaulted and warmly-hued beamed ceilings along with gracefully curved and pillared archways add immense architectural interest. There is a custom media center with large screened TV and oversized windows allow breathtaking views of the lush grounds. French doors open to the adjacent sun room.      More entertaining can be done in the delightful sun room large enough for sitting and game areas or even a pool table if desired. Walls full of floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the expansive acreage and the party can continue outdoors to several entertainment areas. Attractive columns border a lannon stone covered patio which connects to a large brick patio and both overlook  the sprawling yard.      Five bedrooms are located on the second floor; a sixth is on the third level and currently used as an exercise room. Four bedrooms have adjoining or private baths. The romantic master suite has a sitting area with custom entertainment center, an extra-large walk-in closet with dressers and a luxurious spa-like marble bath with Jacuzzi and glass-enclosed shower.      The lower level is finished for more fun and play. There is a large recreation room, a game room with built-ins & craft or work stations, a full bath and storage galore. A mud room with darling cubbies is located on the main level off the side-load garage and the laundry room is conveniently located on the second level.      Quality is everywhere and everything has been redone top to bottom, inside and out. Since its massive renovation in 1995 to present there are new Marvin windows, new lighting, new electrical, new plumbing, new siding, new HVAC, new landscaping and more.

    Market guide

    Zillow predicts 60022 home values will rise 1.3% next year, compared to a 1.3% increase for Glencoe as a whole. Among 60022 homes, this home is valued 84.4% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 4% less per square foot.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 60022, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 2.7% higher than in Glencoe, and 70.3% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 60022 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Glencoe.
