This captivating and distinctive downtown/college area Naperville home has not been available for over 60 years, as it has been the proud home of the well-known Fawell family. Full of warmth, and charm and boasting many outstanding architectural details, the home has enjoyed great care and was expanded to embrace a sizeable first-floor family room and a spacious second-floor primary bedroom suite. The first-floor family room offers 3 walls of windows, gas fireplace, a pass-through window to the kitchen, and an entry door to the patio. The kitchen was beautifully redone a number of years ago and includes solid surface counters, Island, custom cabinetry, and newer upgraded stainless steel appliances. The ceilings are 9 feet and higher in many rooms and graceful archways welcome you to many of the comfortable living spaces. The first floor is outstanding and quite versatile. There is a library adjacent to the foyer and a stunning living room with beamed cathedral ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and distinctive custom windows. The staircase is "tucked" between the living and dining rooms. There is a main floor bedroom and an adjacent full bath. Also to be enjoyed is a den/study and plenty of closet space. Two laundry centers (main floor and in the basement). Note the hardwood floors throughout most of the main level and the impressive millwork detail. The 2nd floor offers 3 additional bedrooms and two full baths: the primary bedroom suite (with its own private bath) and two other good size bedrooms. For a home of this vintage, the walk-in closet space is quite impressive. You will love the studio off of the 3rd bedroom (also with a walk-in attic, and a seasonal clothes closet). A unique alcoved full hall bath is shared by bedrooms 3 and 4. The basement has a finished recreation/game room and plenty of unfinished storage space. A second laundry center is located here as well. The home has radiant baseboard heat (The boiler is about 4 years old). Central air conditioning was added to the main level and two of the bedrooms on the second floor have Mitsubishi Electric Air Conditioning Wall Systems. There is a 3/4 bath in the basement (newly renovated). The location is outstanding - walk/bike to town, North Central College, and to the highly rated "Blue Ribbon" Highlands Elementary School. The trilogy of District 203 schools is second to none (Highlands GS, Kennedy JH, and Naperville Central HS). This is a rare opportunity to own a home with a little bit of history to it in a coveted location!
