Stunning Mid Century Modern architectural gem with panoramic lake views and so many beautiful original features, very close to Chicago and the Dunes, and a quick zip up to Michigan's wine country. This home has so much to offer - sprawling rooms, terrazzo flooring, skylights, sleek lines and thoughtful engineering...all in the perfect location to enjoy this small city's festivals and vibrant downtown. Black lacquer Indiana Coppes Nappannee cabinets with hairpin legs fill the kitchen, its corner sink looking out over the water, and it has plenty of space for a table and chairs. The adjacent great room with massive limestone and marble fireplace and non-stop windows can house more dining and lots of seating. Upper level has a huge master suite with balcony, a large 2nd bedroom and another spacious loft style room that could be an office or 3rd bedroom. Lower level is another large bright space for entertaining. 500 square foot garage has extra storage and an attached greenhouse. All closets are cedar lined and blend into the paneled walls. The tongue and groove ceilings with gorgeous beams are clean and bright and present like artwork to enjoy in every room along with exposed brick walls and continuous high quality flooring. Situated on a large rounded lot, every room has water views, and you'll have your own boathouse to pull into after riding or paddling around Lake George, a meandering body of water which weaves throughout the town of Hobart and falls over the dam at Festival Park, just down the street from this home. Evening brings the twinkling lights of the city and moonlight reflecting on the gentle waves. An extraordinary home for both entertaining and comfort. This special house would be a beautiful retreat, a place to relax and take in the natural surroundings, yet is within walking distance from parks, the downtown with its bars and restaurants, library, market, and bridges and walkways. Low taxes and great schools are an added perk. Also it's a quick easy drive to downtown Chicago via either the Skyway or 80/94. A functional, livable home as is, it really has the potential to become a MCM showcase of brilliant design and beauty. This amazing work of architecture could easily be tweaked to restore it to its 1956 charm, but the necessary important upgrades have already been done. A new roof and industrial gutters have been added, plus new furnace and air conditioning units, and one bathroom completely remodeled. Some TLC will be required to complete the remaining rooms, but the custom cabinetry and details are clever and attractive, all worth preserving. Comes with original blueprints and the original sales brochure shown in the photos on this listing and in the link to the folder with hundreds more.
