East Wilmette...fabulously sited on a 75' wide lot overlooking Canal Shores Golf Course this wonderfully updated and expanded home enjoys sweeping views of the golf course, the quiet privacy of a no outlet street and the comforts of a terrific neighborhood. The home features solid masonry construction, plaster walls and plaster relief moldings, hardwood floors and a casually elegant circular floor plan and decor. Flagstone steps lead into inviting foyer. A center hallway flows easily throughout the main floor. The living room is bright and cheerful, surrounded on three sides by windows and accented by a beautiful fireplace and mantel. The separate dining room is nicely sized and well-positioned for easy entertaining. There is a handsome office with two desks and walls of built-in bookshelves. A perfectly designed addition seamlessly expanded the house by adding a large Cook's kitchen, eating area and fabulous family room. The timeless kitchen features a large island that seats 5-6, great looking custom cabinetry and fully outfitted pantries, top of the line appliances and amazing counter space and storage. An attractive custom designed built-in storage and serving piece accents the eating area where French doors open to a wonderful sunny deck.
