This stunning French Normandy home on the huge corner lot in the coveted Edgebrook neighborhood has so much to offer. This home is filled with character and style. From the moment you pull up to the home, its curb appeal will wow you. You will fall in love with the beautiful brick detailing to the majestic turret to the hand carved wood front door that was once featured as a "Delightful Door of Edgebrook." Upon entering this grand home, you are welcomed with large sweeping rooms filled with natural light and dramatic details. Gleaming hardwood floors fill the home and welcome you. The living room features a wood burning fireplace with a custom made mantle. There is a cedar sunroom off of the living room, an equally large and grand dining room, a beautiful eat-in chef's kitchen with sub zero fridge and other high end amenities as well as a half bath that rounds out the first floor. The kitchen faces a large deck that overlooks the beautiful, lush yard. There is a grand staircase which leads you upstairs where you will find three very generously sized bedrooms and a large bath with original custom details keeping with the character of the home. The bath is shared but also provides access directly from the primary bedroom. The bedrooms and hallway are currently carpeted but there are hardwood floors on the second floor ready to be exposed. There is an expansive full basement with good ceiling clearance which has a feature wall made from Pullman train car mirrors. The home has 200 amp electrical service, a Parks flood control system, new HWH and a two car attached garage so you never have to brave the Chicago elements when coming home. This rare home has so much to offer and can be transformed into your own magical oasis in the city or is ready for you to enjoy with its original charm and character intact. Steps away from transportation, entertainment, dining, top rated schools and more, you won't want to miss the opportunity to make this home yours.
