Location and character! Classic 1920's bungalow on a very large lot in Libertyville's sought-after Heritage area. Very close to METRA, shops, and all the dining, fun, and events in downtown Libertyville. Plus, it's close to Libertyville High and Butterfield Elementary. There is tremendous character to love in this home - high ceilings, large rooms, hardwood floors and original crown, trim, hardware, fixtures, sconces, door hardware, ceiling fixtures, and 3-over-1 windows in excellent condition. A very flexible floor plan offers bedrooms on both main and second floor, with great in-law or teen suite potential. There is huge potential in the plan to create a fantastic master suite on the second floor too - and at this price there is plenty of headroom in the budget before you get near the value ceiling for this prime neighborhood. This home is only on its 3rd owner after nearly 100 years. The current owners of 30+ years have made many smart updates, including an updated kitchen with high-end stainless appliances and custom cabinets that perfectly fits the period of the house. Radiator heat provides quiet, even, efficient, comfort with the bonus of being great for allergies. The lot is very large for the area, at .4 acres. A huge back yard behind the garage is like your own private park. Enjoy peaceful views from the patio, or from a sunny back porch that will work great as a home office. The two car garage is augmented by a big side apron with space for easily three more cars. It is great parking for guests - and the free municipal parking garage is just one block away if you're having a party! A spacious, dry basement with lots of windows affords excellent space for a rec room or play space. We love the idea of a 1920's-themed speakeasy down there! There is also a tidy laundry room, an exercise room, exterior access and great storage space. This one is a story waiting to be told - let's make it yours!
