Welcome to 1121 W. Foster! The care and updates this home has received are apparent immediately upon arrival. Lovely landscaping, a handsome brick cobblestone driveway and entry, set the tone for what's to come inside the home.
Gorgeous brazilian cherry floors and staircase, nice millwork, great tall windows and neutral decor showcase the formal living room. An entire remodel of the kitchen (within last 6 years) and dining area includes; new cherry cabinets, "Verde Fantastico" granite counters, Wolf gas range, dual temp wine refrigerator, pantry cupboard, pot drawers and excellent lighting. Dishwasher, built-in microwave and stainless sink with Kohler faucet are also provided. The kitchen flooring is a gorgeous porcelain tile in a limestone finish.
The family room is a welcome retreat, complete with wood-burning fireplace and flanking custom cabinetry, while opposite is a built-in desk and more bookcases. Glass sliding doors access the yard or deck from both the dining area and family room.
There is a large closet off the back hall that could be converted again to laundry facilities if preferred. A beautiful guest powder room completes the first floor.
The second floor features cherry flooring throughout the hall and bedrooms. The master bedroom features two closets and a fully remodeled bath with gorgeous onyx porcelain tile, shower with dual shower heads (one a rainshower), pedestal sink and heated towel rack.
The two other family bedrooms share a nicely updated hall bath, with marble flooring, new vanity with marble counter and a tub/shower.
The basement is large with ceiling heights worthy of finishing for a recreation room one day, if desired. HVAC units are both approximately eight years old and the roof was just replaced in August 2012. The home has a security system.
The yard is very private and provides a woodland garden environment. A nice deck provides a place for dining, lounging and barbeques!

Some call Lake Bluff a great place to live. Others may refer to its unique character and hometown values. Chicago Magazine ranks Lake Bluff as one of 20 great towns and neighborhoods of the Chicago Metropolitan Region, and Coastal Living Magazine raves Lake Bluff is "a community for the community-minded."
Whatever is said, one can't beat the community atmosphere found in this North Shore town!
Located 35 miles north of Chicago on beautiful Lake Michigan, the Village of Lake Bluff was once a turn-of-the-century summer resort. As a modern full service municipality, Lake Bluff is unique in character and hometown values and offers a lifestyle that is removed from urban traffic and bustle.
