Property Description

Don't miss this remarkable 3BR + office/2.1 bath Prairie Style retreat designed by noted architect John Van Bergen as his personal residence in 1921. Completely updated with custom gourmet kitchen, stunning master bath with steam shower and soaking tub, main floor master suite, office and laundry. The kitchen includes a Blue Star range, Caesarstone counters and a built-in espresso maker. The floor plan is perfect for entertaining with generous room sizes, spectacular views overlooking the lush ravine and gorgeous craftsmanship throughout including a signature Van Bergen fireplace in the living room. Enjoy the music of Ravinia Festival or some peace and quiet in the screened-in gazebo. New, top-of-the-line high efficiency mechanicals and heated floors throughout much of the first floor. The partially finished basement makes a great workout room. All of this beauty is nestled into a premier East Highland Park neighborhood close to restaurants and shops, Ravinia Train Station, and Rosewood Beach.
