One-of-a-kind English Tudor completely transformed from the top of it's steep roof line to the bottom of the extra deep sunken finished basement! Every detail and inch of space of this home renovation was thoughtfully designed. So much of this home's historical charm has been preserved and complimented with contemporary finishes for today's modern lifestyle. It's a complete head to toe makeover that makes for the best "before and after" photos! Step into the foyer through the original leaded-glass front door, protected from the elements with a new custom glass arched storm door. The foyer features gorgeous slate flooring complete with a sizable coat closet with original solid wood door and a vintage glass door knob that you can find throughout the house. The powder room located off the foyer was just updated with solid poplar beadboard, fresh paint, updated fixtures complete with a built-in original medicine cabinet. Keep cozy in the intimate, light-filled living room with the recently restored fireplace updated with a ventless remote start. Through the original french doors, step down into the all brick sunroom/office with heated tile floors and the most beautiful arched windows you've ever seen! Surrounded by light in all 3 side of this space, it's soon to be your favorite spot to sip a cup of coffee, read a book or host a Zoom call. Beyond the living room through double arched doorways you'll find a sprawling space that was meticulously expanded from the original structure featuring a 2 story addition plus extra deep basement. An entertainers' dream with a dining space large enough for a 10 person dining room table that opens to a gorgeous modern kitchen. Custom concrete countertops adorn the 11 foot island with stainless steel basin sink. High-end Jenn Air appliances include a refrigerator, dishwasher, gas stovetop, griddle, digital electric oven and built in steam oven! Indulge in your favorite glass of wine at the custom beverage center with Italian tile backsplash and reclaimed wood countertop. So much light fills this space with a cute little breakfast nook that overlooks the oversized fully fenced in backyard featuring an elevated cedar deck with gas line for a grill, a beautiful native plant rain garden with dry well, a brick paver fire pit area and the most gorgeous perennial gardens that extend from the backyard all the way around to the front of the house! Upstairs you'll find 4 bedrooms, a full bathroom with extra deep Kohler bathtub and a gorgeous light-filled primary bedroom with his/her closets and a vaulted ensuite bathroom featuring custom concrete countertops, transom windows, oversized custom tile shower with concrete bench and a water closet behind a hidden pocket door. The fully finished basement features luxury vinyl click lock plank flooring, another full bathroom, playroom or rec space and a huge sunken family room with hard to miss 9 foot ceilings! Don't forget about the first floor laundry and large mudroom with custom reclaimed wood built in bench, brick tile herringbone floor and so much storage space! Carefully designed and executed by Glen Ellyn's Ember & Brune and architect John M Behrens, the entire home has undergone an entire facelift.
