Don't miss out on this popular Lorel Park setting. A two story English brick home in this area is a rare find, and is ripe for your thoughtful updates and decorating ideas. Situated across from the park and blessed with a large footprint, including an extra first floor room with yard access and an attached two car garage. Generous room sizes are a hallmark of this home, along with some exposed hardwood floors (and glimpses of hardwood under many of the carpeted rooms), cove moldings, and lots of windows (some updated). The living room is large and will be lovely when you give it your touch: there appears to be wood floors under the carpet, built-in bookcases/display shelves and a fireplace feature wall. Consult your contractor to see if the kitchen and dining rooms could be opened up and combined to make a modern hub for great everyday living and entertaining. The extra first floor space/family room is just waiting for your ideas. It has a wall of bookcases and access to the yard and garage. Think about converting the extra closet space in the main bedroom into an en-suite bath, which will enhance your lifestyle and add value. The old school rec room has heavy paneling and a mural, along with an exit door. Large utility/laundry room adjoins that. Enjoy exercising, dog or kid walking around nearby Lorel Park. Schools are close, and all have been updated and expanded. An award-winning library, farmer's market, shops, and restaurants are handy, with or without a car. Easy access to the Edens Expressway, Skokie Swift "L" stops, and Morton Grove Metra are added conveniences. Westfield Old Orchard Mall, Village Crossing and the new Sawmill Station shopping centers are all nearby. Enjoy downtown Skokie's streetscape and many boutique sized restaurants: Libertad, Yolo, Ja Dred, Euro Echo Cafe, Village Inn, Kneads & Wants bakery and more. Morton Grove is home to dueling pizza joints, Pequod's and Burt's, that just cannot be missed. A great small town feel with big city amenities nearby. This home is a rare find in an area that has few homes for sale.
