Holcomb Haven: Large Backyard with Trees, Near Historic Downtown. Move-in-ready home in the Holcomb neighborhood, with a large backyard and very minimal car traffic, near the historic downtown and Metra. A freshly landscaped front yard with accent lighting welcomes you home to this 5-bedroom, 2-bathroom raised ranch (two levels). The airy upper level features graceful cathedral ceilings and a newly remodeled open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area with hardwood floors and Hunter Douglas window treatments. New kitchen appliances, granite countertops, and a large kitchen island, complete with storage and countertop seating, make for a convivial hosting setup. The space's oversized picture window overlooks a verdant, tree-filled backyard abutting the seminary's woods, as well as a spacious deck to enjoy al fresco meals or your morning coffee. Three bedrooms and a bathroom with tub round out the upper floor plan, with any of the bedrooms suitable to serve as a home office if preferred. An attic over one of the bedrooms provides ample storage space as well. Downstairs, find two more bedrooms (again, suitable for office space if preferred), a bathroom with shower, laundry room (new washer and dryer), and family room, which opens onto a three-season screened and glassed-in porch. The family room includes a gas fireplace with a mantel to make your winter gatherings extra cozy, plus built-in cabinets and shelving. On the opposite wall are understated storage closets with more shelving. Updated custom window treatments provide privacy throughout the home. From the greenery-immersed porch, step out onto a brick patio with a built-in outdoor fireplace, perfect for brightening summer and fall evenings in the fresh air. Opposite the patio on the porch's other side is a custom-built shed with ample storage on its ground floor and loft space. A side path leads to a privacy gate and back to the front of the home, with its newly re-asphalted 4-car driveway and recently added landscaping and lighting enhancements. The home is desirably located in the interior of the low-traffic Holcomb subdivision. It is two blocks from a nearby play park and minutes from the North Shore Path and Metra train station, as well as the historic downtown's shopping, restaurants, and schools.
