Spacious, light-filled rooms of this beautifully updated traditional foursquare home are enhanced by dramatic crown moldings, bay windows, crosscut oak doors, refinished wood floors, stained/leaded glass, built-ins and smoothly operating pocket doors showcasing the craftsmanship of a by gone era. Equally elegant and livable with large, eat-in kitchen equipped with an island, two sinks, high quality appliances including 6-burner gas range. 2 ovens, and built-in microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer that will delight gourmet chefs and family cooks alike. This home can be as formal or casual as you want with a wide-open living room with marble-faced gas fireplace and a dining room for a large family or a party of dinner guests. The nearby library/study with its own gas fireplace can easily adapt to a private office by pulling closed its attractive pocket door. A half bath makes the main floor self-contained. Access the second floor by the kitchen staircase or the grand staircase that ascends from the home's welcoming entry area. Of the 4 bright, beautiful bedrooms, 3 are large enough to have siting areas; 2 have gas fireplaces. Presently one bedroom serves as a den/TV room with a well-lit, built-in bookshelf. Two bathrooms on the second floor are impeccably updated with tile and Quartz details. One with a ample shower is situated between two bedrooms. The other has both shower and large cast-iron bubble-jet tub and heated quartz-tiled floor.

Next, head up to floor 3 to a self-contained living space swathed in natural light with views of Lake Superior. With its own kitchen & full updated bath, it can serve as a guest apartment or whatever you need: perhaps a retreat for a teenage/student family member; a studio for your family's artist; a play area for children; a work space for a professional who telecommutes. Also check out the full basement with rec room, shop space, & laundry with oversized washer/dryer; the landscaped yard with wrought-iron fenced areas & large, secluded patio.
