Overview

If you want to live in your dream fairy tale house, look no further than this abode affectionately known as "The Mushroom House", with its curved shingle roof, bouldered walls and new copper gutters. It brings enchantment to children and a warm feeling of home every day. Inside is a stunning boulder fireplace and a princess balcony in the living room. The grand staircase with a hand-carved balustrade and overseen by an original fresco, splits into two leading to the master and another bedroom, resulting in extra privacy. Kitchen has been remodeled in 2010 with granite countertops, stone backsplash, top of the line JennAir appliances, including industrial strength cooking range, heated floors, and 2nd staircase. Located in the New Trier township, close to the Forest Preserve, golf course, beach, train station and freeway. Incredible value for this gem of a house featured in the book "Architectural Album: Chicago's North Shore" and a website about the ten richest U.S.A. towns.
