About 278 Linden Park Place, Highland Park, Illinois
Welcome to 278 Linden Park Place- East Highland Park's hidden treasure and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This fabulous modern farmhouse offers ten rooms, four+ bedrooms, two full and two half baths, and a separate 2 1/2 car garage. Originally built as the barn for the Italianate house at 274 Linden Park Place, which served as The Alta School for Girls in the 1890's and is now a beautiful home. The barn, with it's vertical broad wood siding, was converted into a residence in the 1950's. It is gloriously tucked back and hidden beyond the ravine and accessed by a timber bridge and sits privately on an enormous 3/4 acre ravine lot. This home has been in the same family for over 35 years, meticulously cared for, and thoughtfully updated and modernized. There is almost 2500 square feet of living space on two floors and stunning views from all rooms in all seasons. The generous living room has a stunning stone fireplace and the large dining room opens to both the kitchen and the delightful screened porch offering incredible views of the yard and ravine. The well-equipped kitchen offers quality wood cabinetry, stainless appliances, Corian counters, an eating area, and a convenient adjacent laundry room. The office or study and 1/2 bath complete the first floor. On the second floor there is an amazing two room primary suite, which includes a second fireplace, great built-ins, a private bath with double vanity and walk- in shower, as well as access to a possible roof deck over the screened porch. There are three additional bedrooms upstairs and an updated hall bathroom. One of the bedrooms has a lovely remodeled en-suite half bath. This flexible floor plan lends itself to many different room uses and lifestyles. There are new oak hardwood floors on the first floor and new carpeting on the second floor. The entire home has been freshly painted with mostly new light fixtures throughout. There is partial central air conditioning, two wood burning fireplaces, a separate workshop attached to the garage, and even a sprinkler system for the lawn. Enjoy the peaceful surroundings, the mature trees, the expansive lawn, and the unique setting offered here. Linden Park Place is ideally located within blocks of Lake Michigan, schools, transportation and downtown Highland Park. * Please do not drive over the bridge to view the property without an appointment.
