Dawn McKenna (NS)

740 Humboldt Avenue, Winnetka, IL 60093

Location, space and privacy combine in East Winnetka just one block from Sheridan Road and Lake Michigan. Set amid some of Winnetka's finest estates, this rarely available half-acre lot presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build your dream home in an idyllic setting with lake views. Originally part of a larger estate, the property is currently comprised of a modest New England-style brick and cedar Colonial-one of only three homes on the entire block, giving it an unparalleled sense of privacy. The traditionally styled residence has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The first floor features a gracious knotty pine living room opening to a classic screened porch, powder room, wet bar/kitchenette and attached garage with laundry. A private yard can be enjoyed off the porch with picturesque views of the expansive tree-lined property stretching beyond. Upstairs, the main living quarters contain two bedrooms, a full bath, full kitchen and a dining room/family room highlighted by a fireplace. Use the existing home as a starting point, or begin anew. Bring your vision to this special property nestled in a quiet pocket of town within walking distance of Lloyd Beach, Tower Road beach, downtown Winnetka and the Village Green. Enjoy the ultimate North Shore lifestyle from 740 Humboldt.
