427 illinois is a magnificent home designed by architect James Nagle, member of the renowned'Chicago Seven' post-modernist group. consisting of a montage of angles and lines that constitute a home with astounding square footage and space, 427 will drift into your frame of awareness like some delicious slice of pie, sufficiently sweet to explode on the tip of your tongue and, if you are into that sort of thing, make you say'more.' here's more... a cedar shingled wonder that unfolds loft-like with angles, spaces and light - an overwhelming amount of light with four bedrooms up and another... nestled in the recently finished basement. the floorplan flows with sureness from a welcoming foyer at the front door off the crescent drive and leads to a effusive living room dining room punctuated by a fireplace and resolutely surrounded by window after window. the entire tableau strikes me as something from places we have stayed in sante fe with a soaring ceiling and views to the nestled backyard with work shed and beautiful blue stone patio. the main floor further unfolds through two access points to the kitchen which overlooks an eat in area along with a family room. a two car attached garage is adjacent to this location. the second level consists of a lovely master suite that is lofted and overlooking the living room and dining room and has a walk in closet and bath. there are three other beds and one bath on this floor and two of the bedrooms offer soaring flights of fantasy to the kids or the child within as the ceilings soar on an angle and beneath the high point both bedrooms offer lofted space for the future denizens of this den of creativity. all of the bedrooms are spacious and honestly are unlike most of what you have ever seen. the newly finished basement is home to abundant and usable space that includes a fifth bedroom ensuite with a thoughtful bath. also on this level is flex space with high ceilings for an in home office, recreation room, storage and work room. among other things my client is a musician and part of the set up allows for in home recording. you have the option to use this space as you wish. finally, the backyard is gathering place that lives in the realm of wishful thinking. situated amid greenery (when the time comes) and a high fence ensconced by a deliciously deciduous greenery, there is a blue stone patio, firepit and a wondrous working shed for utility or a magical getaway akin to the hobbit. this home is a short walk to centennial park, the pool, ice rink and the rec center. it attends ramona, highcrest, wilmette jr. high and new trier. the home is a delight to show and the sellers are good friends. when they moved in they replaced subfloors throughout, installed new flooring and carpeting, did the basement with new flooring and a new bath and revolutionized the back yard. i hope your client finds as much beauty in this home as we have. this gorgeous home is priced appropriately for...
