Absolutely "Stunning, Amazing, and Beautiful" . . .The moment you set foot onto this timeless home's Grand Trex-decked front porch with its elegant beadboard ceilings and refreshing ceiling fan, you know that this home is a gateway to a life of comfort and historical charm. Originally constructed in 1920 as part of the storied Jesse Wheaton farm and originally crafted as a distinguished Sears Roebuck home, this residence has been transformed meticulously to blend its rich heritage with state-of-the-art modern amenities. As you enter through the classic cherry front door, the soaring vaulted foyer welcomes you, showcasing the home's original oak staircase-an artifact that whispers stories of the past. To your right, an enormous 24 x 18 living room invites intimate gatherings by the original brick fireplace, surrounded by custom-built bookcases. The dining experience in the home's French country dining room is an idyllic backdrop for your dinner parties. Adjacent, practical, yet stylish amenities include a walk-in coat closet, a discreet powder room, and a large walk-in pantry. The kitchen and family room combo stretches a luxurious 30 x 24 feet, where culinary dreams come alive. Equipped with two high-end KitchenAid ovens, Broan hood, Thermidor range, and a Bosch dishwasher, this kitchen is a chef's paradise. The enormous island has a built-in sink and the breakfast bar peninsula invites Sunday brunches that open to double terraced Trex decks-an entertainer's delight overlooking the meticulously manicured lawns and vibrant garden. Upstairs, the private living quarters feature 4-5 bedrooms, radiating elegance and comfort. The master suite serves as a luxurious retreat, complete with a vaulted ceiling, a custom Elfa walk-in closet, and an en-suite bathroom. This spa-like bathroom is equipped with slate flooring, rich cherry cabinets, and a spacious soaker tub for two, strategically placed by windows that frame tranquil garden views. Additionally, the suite includes a separate toilet and double walk-in steam shower, elevating the relaxation experience. Radiant heated floors add warmth and comfort. The second bathroom is equally impressive, featuring dual Corian sinks, a separate bath and toilet area, a solar tube for natural light and radiant heated floors. Each of the other bedrooms have their own charm with vaulted ceilings or walk-in closets, providing ample personal space. The upstairs is complemented by a turret library, adding a touch of old-world charm. The fourth bedroom offers flexibility for future configurations, being pre-wired and ready to be divided into two separate rooms with just the addition of a wall. There's also a double-door linen closet, and hallway skylight. This fabulous home also includes a finished basement with surround sound-ideal for hosting movie nights or casual get-togethers. Additionally, the space is pre-wired and plumbed for an entertainment kitchen and/or additional bathroom. The original basement offers ample space for lots of storage and additional room for your own Wine cellar / Root cellar. The meticulously designed three-car garage boasts overhead shelving, warm water tap for washing cars, bathing pets or filling up pools, and an 8' overhead door opening to the backyard oasis, complete with mature trees and shrubs, which promises endless days of outdoor enjoyment. Each update to this home was carefully considered right down to the choice of Hardie Board Fiber Cement Siding-a non-combustible material boasting a Class A fire rating. Situated just a 5-minute walk from Northside Park and a 10-minute walk from downtown Wheaton, this home is ideally located near top schools, parks, and amenities. Enjoy modern comfort steeped in rich history at this prime Wheaton property. Top schools in Wheaton-Longfellow Elementary, Franklin Middle School and Wheaton North High School, top-notch park district with team sports, two public pools and classes galore.
