Located in La Grange's historic area of La Grange, this beautiful home is convenient to all the great amenities that La Grange provides. FULLY renovated, this home is for the person who is stylish and enjoys the benefits of an easy-to-manage and highly efficient home. The custom, contemporary design marries the craftsman architecture of the original preserved woodwork and fireplace. The house has geo-thermal energy that services this traditional, suburban four-square home (with 5 bedrooms) to enjoy low-cost, consistent warmth in the winter and coolness in the summer affordably. High-end products were selected to renovate this home for the intention of high style. At the same time, the home was thoughtfully designed for long-lasting savings and low-energy considerations. Warm radiant-heat exists on all tile and stone floors available in the lower level, kitchen, and all the bathrooms. Outdoor renovations feature a 50-year warrantied aluminum roof, energy-star windows, Chicago-style stucco, chimney, stained fir eaves, concrete drive, cistern, insulated garage, and gorgeous landscaping. Mechanically updated (2009), with a two zone, geo-thermal heating and cooling system, electric, plumbing, and (in 2019) a recirculating, tankless hot water/boiler which provides un-ending supplies of hot shower water! The bright, spacious kitchen exhibits modern elements including sleek Amish maple cabinetry, stainless railings and countertops, ocean-colored island, and built-in SubZero refrigerator. The giant island with seating for four (plus additional kitchen-lounge area) overlooks the lovely views of the yard and garden. Upstairs are five versatile nice-sized bedrooms for offices or sleeping. A third-floor bedroom-suite was created for office/playroom/bedroom. It has elevated ceilings, walk-in closet, natural light, and a stunning walk-in steam shower. Right past the California-sized double back doors, there are adjacent mud and laundry rooms. The lower level has lots of room for noisy family activity or movie-theater - there is a lot of space. Located on a beautiful tree lined street in La Grange, this hypoallergenic home is a healthy, comfortable home that warmly greets a visitor with a BIG front porch. It's a very short walk to the Metra to catch a FAST train to Chicago. The home is a skip-away from award-winning schools, parks, or downtown La Grange for all the wonderful fun that La Grange proudly provides. UNIQUE, SYLISH, and THOUGHTFUL.
