Property Description

Life is better at the lake! This vintage cottage-type three bedroom home is across the street from Cedar Lake, located in Lake Villa, the "Gateway to the Chain o'Lakes." Head to your mailbox, turn to the Lake, and public access is steps away. The front door opens into an entryway perfect for keeping coats, boots, and fishing gear. Enjoy a wood burning fire in the hand cut limestone fireplace and watch the light glint over the cedar beams in the living room. Need room for kids or grandkids to run around? You have your choice of the front patio or back deck, side yard or backyard (with newer chain link fence so the dog can play too), or the front yard. The front has cottage-style metal open work fencing, yards of perennials, and a 4x4 raised garden bed. In the spring this yard will bloom with lilac, daffodils, roses, peonies, raspberry bushes and red currants, plus two dwarf cherry trees. Best of all, the mechanicals have been taken care of. In 2014 the electric was updated throughout, a new HVAC system installed, and a new complete septic system. Also in 2014, a 24x24 garage was built, with front and back automatic garage doors. In 2016 the bathroom was renovated to include a vessel sink and antique persian tiles. In 2017 a new roof followed. In 2019 a state-of-art water filtration system was put in, and the plumbing converted to copper pipes. In 2021 the property was painted throughout, new carpeting was instaled in all three bedrooms and the oak hardwood floors in the living room and dining room were refinished in a beautiful walnut stain. This home has roomy closets, cabinet storage, and an unfinished partial basement with a back door to the yard. Its cozy layout makes it more affordable to heat in the winter and cool in the summer. Come see this one-of-a-kind genuine vintage lake home.
