39 Locust Road, Winnetka, IL 60093

As you enter, close your eyes and imagine what this remarkable home once was. Go back to a different time and place. A time with with no internet, no hurried life, and yes..... no cell phones. Do you remember? A time when elegance mattered, not just square footage. A time when success and class was something you carried with you quietly. Never flaunted. This is not new construction.....far from it. This is old, this is vintage. Granite counters? No. SS appliances? No. All of today's bells & whistles? Not a chance. But this home does have several qualities missing in today's new construction, to go along with its' generous room sizes and ample closet space. Words like warmth, charm, and character, which are overused by real estate agents, really apply here. If these walls could talk, oh the stories they could tell! The buyer of this home is looking for a renovation project, wanting to add their touch, their flair, their ideas, to make it their home for another 50 years. 1st floor office, 5th bedroom, family room and laundry room. Master BR suite with beautiful vintage dressing room & 5 double-door closets almost stops you in your tracks. The backyard? Breathless. It's nothing short of amazing, from the in-ground pool to the english really need to see it to believe it. Please don't take our word for it. It's truly an opportunity of a lifetime.
