This distinctive classic vintage home is beautifully situated just two blocks from Lake Michigan in east Lake Bluff. The rarely found oversized .29 acre property was transformed by LEED certified designer and landscape architect Kris Barker. The outdoor living space includes a fabulous front porch overlooking the boulevard of Center Avenue, a fenced backyard with a manicured grass area perfect for bocce ball, a dining space, and a fire pit area all accented by maintenance free grasses and trees handpicked by the designer. This modern vintage home just keeps getting better. The serene primary suite was created in 2015 with a private entryway, custom designed closets, and a striking new bathroom with a custom double vanity with quartzite top, slipper bathtub, and luxe shower. The open kitchen, great room, and bonus office was designed by architect Celeste Robbins in 2012, whose work has been featured in architectural digest. Many additional improvements throughout the home include designer paint, high end light fixtures, bathroom updates, new roof in 2018, rebuilt chimney and installed gas blower fireplace with marble surround and custom mantle, and so much more. The following vintage detailing beautifully complements the improvements made to the home: 10 foot ceilings on the first floor, fine millwork, tall windows, and quarter sawn oak hardwood flooring throughout. One would be hard pressed to find a light filled modern day vintage home with magazine worthy contemporary design updates at this value.
