Property Description

This beautiful and stately home was one of the first homes built in Hubbard Woods in 1903. It has seen many changes as Winnetka grew and has stood the test of time. Importantly, some of its distinct architectural features provide a glimpse of early Winnetka style. It was built with expansive rooms for family and friends to gather and even accommodate a long weekend visit. The open first floor circular plan from living room to sitting room with its wide gas lit fireplace is the perfect place for good conversation, studying, or reading the newest bestseller. The front to back dining room can accommodate the largest family celebration. The expansive screened porch off the sitting room and family room with parallel decks is wonderful for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. The private back yard is perfect for your bird feeders and monarch butterfly and hummingbird sightings. Have you discovered the tree house yet? This home has been lovingly cared for and improved by its current residents of 40 years. The 3-story addition in 1995 included a huge sun-filled family room for family entertaining and Super Bowl games, additional storage attic space, additional second floor bedroom and laundry room, and a large basement workshop area for the woodworker or hobbyist in the family or simply for additional storage. More recent improvements include sprinkler system, new subway tile backsplash and quartz counters in 2017 with new SS appliances in kitchen, updated baths on second floor and new boiler in 2020, and space pak 2022. This is a rare opportunity to own a very special home and to make it yours. A Must See!
