    Wow..check out these views!! 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 privacy of a quiet cul de sac 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 an inviting foyer. The 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 built-in desks and walls of bookshelves. A perfectly designed addition seamlessly expanded the house by adding a large Cook's kitchen, eating area and large family room. The kitchen is timeless and features a large island that seats 5-6, great looking custom cabinetry, a wall of 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. The family room is fabulous with vaulted ceiling, soaring windows, a wall of built-in cabinetry and more French doors to the deck. The back hall leads from the kitchen to mudroom and access to the attached 2 car garage. A distinctive curved staircase leads to the second floor where there are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. The master suite is lovely...its the perfect size surrounded by windows, with pretty moldings, recessed lights, a dressing area, walk-in closet and spa-like bath with double sink vanity, towel warmers, large glass-enclosed steam shower and soaking tub (under a large window). The family bedrooms are all well-sized and nicely situated along the upstairs hall, they are bright and cheerful with big closets and many windows. There is a convenient pull-down stairs for easy access to the attic. The basement is large and bright with lots of storage, laundry, mechanicals and potential. The lot is nearly 12,000 square feet, private and beautiful with colorful gardens, large trees, and open lawns that ease into the golf course with the Bahai Temple in the background. A coveted attached garage is accessed by a driveway off the back alley. The yard behind the house provides a great place for a playset and basketball. The location is ideal...close to Gilson Park, 4th and Linden, trains and downtown Wilmette.
