Property Description

Welcome to the Historic Morningside Gardens now called Triangle Neighborhood of Mount Prospect. This beautiful period-style Victorian was built in 1874 and brings the best of what Mount Prospect has to offer. This home has been featured on several Mount Prospect walk tours and holds a special place in the Mount Prospect Historical Society. Whether you are walking or driving by the curb appeal will have you in awe! This home features a large enclosed front porch with tons of windows and natural light. Walking into the formal living room places you in the heart of this historic masterpiece. A separate dining room with a fireplace (currently a music room) has original stained glass windows and painted hardwood floors. The music room takes you into the newly modernized eat-in kitchen filled with natural light and quartz counters, custom cabinetry, a large island, white subway tile backsplash, recessed lighting, a beautiful farm sink, and new hardwood flooring. A small coffee/liquor bar right off the kitchen area with a wine fridge. A First-floor bedroom and full bathroom are perfect for in-laws or guests. Two staircases on opposite sides of the home take you to the upper level where two bedrooms are separated by a Jack & Jill bathroom. A loft area perfect for an office overlooks the yard. The Master en-suite is breathtaking and boasts custom cabinetry and a separate large steam shower with the focal point being the claw-foot bubbling tub. The fifth bedroom overlooks the double lot and is currently being used as a pilates studio. The basement access is directly off the living room and is partially finished with another full bathroom, great use of space for children or young adults, or as an additional guest suite. The new fully fenced double-lot backyard has an entertainment Shed with a 70" flat screen and fire pit to enjoy the evenings outside in this private backyard. Walking distance to Downtown Mount Prospect for dinner or the many festivals and activities this great town has to offer. The Metra station with express service to downtown is a short 5 min walk for easy commuting. Sought after district 57 and 214 Schools wrap up this once-in-a-lifetime chance to own historic home.
