Property Description

Extensively renovated and restored in 2016-17, this gracious English Country Manor is situated on nearly 1/2 an acre on picturesque Sheridan Place just steps to Lake Michigan. Grand yet manageable, every room in this home offers architectural detail and character not found in newer construction. From the exquisite restored oak paneling in the reception hall and grand staircase, this home is a perfect balance of character and updates for today's lifestyle - a top of the line Chef's kitchen and butler's pantry, first floor family room and entertaining size living room and dining room. The welcoming bluestone entry foyer is balanced by a bluestone veranda adjacent to the attached garage and mudroom. Four large bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms on the second level, along with laundry and generous storage - each room is incredibly versatile. The dramatic primary suite has a vaulted and beamed 15'+ ceiling, walk-in closet and timeless spa-like bathroom. With large windows on every side - this home is unexpectedly flooded with light while balanced with warm finishes. New custom storms throughout. Located on a quiet street of less than 20 houses, this home sits on a 100x201 lot with a park-like back yard and patio. Just steps to Lighthouse beach, Gillson Park, Northwestern, and endless options for biking and walking, 2881 Sheridan Place is a rarely available renovated "perfect size" home with a exceptional character and A+ location.
