Welcome to 712 West Michigan Avenue, just a short distance to the heart of the University of Illinois campus. You will love the beautiful original hardwood flooring throughout the house and the living room that has loads of natural light and the warmth of a wood burning fireplace. Step into the sunroom with low built-in shelves that is perfect for a playroom, craft room, or home office, bathed in sunshine from two walls of tall refurbished vintage windows. Just a few steps away is the spectacular library with 12-foot high floor-to-ceiling bookcases and a rolling library ladder, a second wood burning fireplace, and large windows overlooking the private surroundings of the backyard with a door that leads right out to the patio. The room is truly a book lover's dream and can also serve as a family room or study. The kitchen has custom cabinets with beautiful warm-hued wood and useful pull-out drawers, granite countertops, a sizable pantry and multi-function closet, a large eat-in area surrounded by windows, and a conveniently located half bath. The dining room is a grand place to entertain, with a beautiful built-in buffet area with lots of storage and French doors leading to the patio and offering views of the lush backyard. On the second floor you'll find three generously sized bedrooms with ceiling fans, built-in storage, and a guest bath with dual sinks. The master bedroom is a retreat within itself, featuring its own nicely tiled en suite bathroom with a double sink, a spacious two-part walk-in closet, a private balcony with view of the backyard, and a large sitting room right off the bedroom that can serve as a home office, beautifully lit with views of the mature trees along the brick-paved street. Truly one of a kind. The huge fourth bedroom is in the finished attic with separate energy-efficient heating and air conditioning, a regular bedroom closet, and large extra storage closet. The large space has areas suitable for use as a retreat or playroom - the possibilities are endless. The basement provides an enormous amount of storage. The well-lit front part of the basement has windows, wood paneled walls, and a finished ceiling, and would make a nice workout or craft room. The back area also has windows to lend natural light to a workbench area. A brick and concrete back patio is a great space for grilling and entertaining, and the backyard is spacious and well-landscaped with a nice private feel. The front yard has perennial gardens and an elegant brick circle drive for easy parking. With the electric service to the single-car garage and side of the house neighboring the driveway it would be easy to set up charging for an electric vehicle. The home is close to UIUC, Leal Elementary and other local schools. It is just three short blocks to beautiful Carle Park and close to both the tennis courts at Blair Park and the beauty of Japan House and the UIUC Arboretum. Enjoy easy access to Carle Hospital, the Krannert Performing Arts Center, and downtown Urbana's restaurants and farmers market, all within a few minutes' drive.
