1927 Tudor Cottage

Waukegan, Illinois 60085

Amazing Architectural Details!

Stunning English Cottage-inspired home has significant architectural features! The charming exterior greets you with view of the rare portico over a newer driveway. Enter via the covered front porch to a spacious foyer, original slate tile & built in storage benches.

Notice all the arched doorways here, one leading to the amazing living rm w/impressive 20 ft cathedral/barrel ceiling, gorgeous front French door Palladian-style window & floor to ceiling gas-starter fireplace.

Check out those gleaming hardwood floors which run through most of the home, then imagine Holidays & entertaining which is easy as this open floor plan leads to a formal dining room with charming built-in corner hutches, an adjacent main floor family room with a built-in desk, an impressive wall of glass block windows plus the huge back window offering view of the bonus large back yard (don't miss the fun Dutch door here!).

Wander back to the charming kitchen w/retro metal cabinets, all newer stainless steel appliances, table space & a large window above the sink for morning sunshine. There is a convenient powder room off the front hall & a large pantry closet - the storage in this home is amazing!

Up the stairs offers an arched window view of that fabulous living room, then on to four (4) good sized bedrooms all w/charming swing windows, those gleaming hardwood floors, good closet space.

The primary bedroom is extra special w/an amazing 10 x 8 dressing room w/built-in drawers & closets, a separate toilet room and super sharp shower w/brand new tiles! Next to this is a French door entry to den, office, nursery with more built-ins! Pull-down stairs in main hallway lead to the attic where the central hair unit is - not easy to find a vintage home with quiet steam heat PLUS central air! A mostly finished basement has more living space - play room, game room, storage, laundry area - it just goes on!

The deep 205' fenced back yard is full of surprises w/a newer brick patio, a grapevine covered arch leading to the 20 x 14 screened party house w/built-in brick oven for all kinds of 3-season fun! Gardeners, don't miss the potting shed at back of the 2 car garage.

This 1927 built beauty also has some great history having once been rented by Vaudeville-era star Jack Benny (born in Waukegan), and featured on Waukegan's 2010 Tour of Historic Homes. Close to Genesee Theatre, Lake Michigan (Waukegan has a beautiful large beach) and awesome parks - This is a home for all, in all seasons - See it soon!
