Property Description

Do you know what year The Chicago White Stockings (yes, I said "stockings"... google it! lol) won against the Cleveland Blues in the 1st game played in baseball's American League? Here's a few hints: William McKinley was inaugurated for a 2nd term, New York was the first state to require license plates (they cost $1, by the way), and you could buy a brand new home for only $5,000! The year was 1901, and it was full of amazing events including the construction of this beautifully maintained, 2 story vintage charmer! You are going to fall madly in love with this spacious home nestled in the heart of Waukegan, just minutes from the Metra, downtown area, Great Lakes Naval Base, and most importantly for all of you water lovers out there- THE BEACH! Old world charm and features meet today's colors and conveniences in this updated 3 bedroom property with full, unfinished basement. From the moment you step inside, you'll love the beautiful woodwork, oversized trim, crown moldings, gleaming floors, arched doorways, vintage fixtures, and so much more! Great layout for entertaining, including a massive Dining Room with bay window and inviting Kitchen with all appliances, oak cabinets, and cool coffee bar/ pantry nook for lots of extra storage! On breezy, balmy evenings, enjoy a glass of wine or family dinner al fresco on one of TWO spacious enclosed porches! Once upstairs, you'll find 3 roomy bedrooms with large windows and good sized closets for a home of this age. A full basement and oversized yard, with plenty of space to build a garage, complete this adorable, move-in ready home! Won't last long so see this one and make an offer today!
