Homes like this do not come along very often. This solidly built all brick bungalow will tug at your heart as the charm of yesteryear blends with the conveniences of today. Walking distance to downtown Wauconda and all the small town amenities you envision, as well as Bangs Lake, for all kinds of seasonal water activities. A combination of convenience and privacy awaits you on this huge lot with great yard space, patios, and large, brick paver lined driveway for bikes, trikes, skating and big wheels! Car enthusiasts and hobbyists alike will love the 26'x46' 4-car garage with plenty of room for the biggest "toys", all nestled under mature trees. A screened-in front porch beckons evenings out with lemonade and laughter and the sounds of a summer night, or a leisurely morning cup of coffee. This charming screened porch with custom made wood screens has a beadboard ceiling and ceiling fan with light. Step through the custom crafted leaded glass front door into the beauty of this home that has been meticulously cared for by the owners of almost 40 years. Fabulous brick gas log fireplace with custom mantle and sconces, arched entryways into the kitchen and dining areas, birch crown molding, hardwood floors throughout - oozing with a beauty you cannot find in today's homes. The remodeled kitchen has the original birch cabinetry that reaches to the ceiling and is enhanced with additional ivory custom cabinets & two separate quartz countertop hues for the designer effect. A vegetable/bar sink has been well placed in the counter that services the dining area and has a custom cover with a vessel sink that operates two-fold, providing both functionality and design. All stainless steel appliances, glass tile backsplash, appliance garage, Elkay brand stainless steel undermount farm sink and large windows finish off this phenomenal kitchen. The dining area is a great place to gather and can accomodate a large dining table and lots of guests. The informal office is located off the dining room and is absolutely amazing, surrounded by two walls of beautiful windows. This layout is perfect for the large gatherings the current owners have had over the years and provides for intimate get-togethers as well. The first floor primary bedroom is chic and complete with custom built-ins in the large closet along with a custom built-in dresser. The updated full bath has ceramic tile surround, solid brass grab bars with a custom nickel finish and Restoration Hardware decor. The upper level has 2 cozy, yet spacious bedrooms, hardwood floors, powder room and an upper hall area perfect for additional desk space. There are also two separate walk-in storage rooms upstairs as well. The full English basement has multiple windows, an office area, rec room and updated, full bathroom. The workshop is great for the hobbyist and there is a cold room for additional storage as well as a full wall of closets too. The laundry area has great counter folding space, ample cabinetry and double wash tub. The lower level is light, bright and big - just add carpeting! As you exit the rear of the home, you are welcomed by an oversized concrete patio with surround sound speakers wired in & custom built firepit, a garden flagstone patio also with speakers, vegetable garden, huge backyard and tons of room to play and entertain. There's also additional parking space on a side driveway. This is truly a home for all seasons that cannot be duplicated.
