Incredible opportunity to utilize fabulous construction drawings by Melichar Architects to complete this beautiful home in Villa Turicum on .94 acres with a three car attached garage! This property features spacious rooms with a proposed kitchen overlooking the backyard, a huge first floor guest suite/optional first floor primary suite, 4 bedrooms on the second floor with hardwood floors, including a sizable primary suite with fireplace ready to customize to fit your needs. Most interior millwork, finishes, flooring and cabinetry have been removed. Home sold As Is. This beautiful Georgian home is east of Sheridan Road, just blocks from Lake Michigan with a private, fenced backyard. Other features include an impressive two-story foyer with a lovely staircase, wonderful floor plan and 4 wood-burning fireplaces. The previous owners built a 3-story addition from 1999-2001. It includes a first-floor suite with a bedroom, two full bathrooms (one with a jetted tub and the other with a shower), a huge walk-in closet, wet bar, sitting room, and 2nd floor office or playroom. The bright sitting room has vaulted ceilings, skylights, windows, and a glass sliding door that opens to the patio and backyard. On the 2nd floor of this newer area, a huge storage space connects with bedroom 4 on the original 2nd floor. The lower level was expanded during this renovation to include an English basement (north and east windows are above grade), a large recreation room with a walk-in closet, and a full bathroom with jetted tub. All double-hung windows were replaced with Renewal by Anderson windows in 2018 by the previous owner. This is the perfect opportunity to finish designing your dream home in a wonderful neighborhood working with a top architect. One also has the ability to select their own finishes or use the finishes pre-selected by the architect. Choose your own contractor to complete this incredible home.
