Property Description

Introducing the Mary Becker Foursquare House, a cherished landmark nestled in the heart of Wilmette's coveted east side. This historic gem, built in 1906, exudes timeless charm and character at every turn. Embraced by lush foliage and towering trees, this corner lot offers a rare blend of privacy and convenience. Step inside to discover a harmonious fusion of old-world craftsmanship and modern comfort. The main level welcomes you with a sun-drenched living space, adorned with a beautiful fireplace and expansive windows that invite the outdoors in. A newly renovated kitchen beckons the culinary enthusiast, while a spacious mudroom provides added convenience for busy lifestyles. Upstairs, four bedrooms await, each offering ample space and natural light, creating an atmosphere of tranquility and relaxation. Additionally, a newly created guest suite downstairs in the basement provides an extra level of comfort and privacy for visitors. Outside, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy lazy afternoons on the sweeping front porch, perfect for savoring the sights and sounds of the neighborhood. Or retreat to the backyard oasis, where mature trees provide shade and seclusion for outdoor gatherings and al fresco dining. But perhaps the most enchanting feature of this property is its historic barn, a true rarity in the village of Wilmette. This versatile space, currently serving as a two-car garage, offers endless potential as a workshop, studio, or creative sanctuary. Located in the highly sought-after district of Central Elementary, High Crest Middle School, and New Trier High School, this home is not just a residence-it's a gateway to a vibrant community and exceptional education. Whether you're seeking a peaceful retreat, a place to entertain, or a piece of history to call your own, the Mary Becker Foursquare House welcomes you home.
