Just the right size and just the right charm in this Chicago-style bungalow with a couple of unexpected surprises found at the back of the house -- a family room with soaring ceilings, and a playful, treehouse-like screen porch perched above the detached garage. Built in the 1920s and expanded in 2000, the exterior is adobe-style stucco with front and rear additions clad in reclaimed ceramic tile, designed in 1913 to appear as wood shingles for Cyrus McCormick, Jr.'s "Walden" house in Lake Forest. Just inside the front door, a ribbon of windows floods the front sunroom with natural light. Other first floor features hardwood floors throughout, a large living room with fireplace, formal dining room, full bath, plus bedroom or optional den. A gallery style kitchen opens to the large family room with dramatic, vaulted ceilings and large windows overlooking the yard. Upstairs, a loft overlooks the family room and offers the perfect opportunity for a quiet reading nook or play space, and the large master bedroom has a lovely sitting area. Additional second floor rooms include bedroom #3, a hall bath, and an additional bedroom or optional nursery or craft room. Perhaps the most unexpected feature is the detached garage with second floor screen porch. Perfect for entertaining and enjoying summer breezes among the treetops.
