Looking for a classic, French-style home to call your own? This property at 4517 Lorraine Ave. in Highland Park offers just that, plus five bedrooms, four bathrooms and one half-bathroom. The 5,630-square-foot home was originally built in 1929 and has plenty of old-world charm like arched doorways, detailed fireplace surrounds and a stained glass window along the staircase.
It’s not without modern amenities, though. The home features an open-concept kitchen, family room and dining area that make the most of how we live today.
Listing agent Thomas Bellinger of Compass said that the home’s design suits its placement on the French streets in Highland Park because it “has a bunch of the French architectural character.”
A step through the front door leads into the home’s foyer where the detailed staircase rail catches the eye. There are built-in bookcases on either side of the front door that have an old-world charm in their arched shape.
The formal living room is full of natural light and has a fireplace at its center. The formal dining room has an elaborate chandelier over the table and wood paneling along the walls. The main living area, which includes the kitchen, family room and second dining area, has an abundance of built-in cabinets for kitchen storage, a long center island and access to the back patio.
All of the bedrooms in the home sit on the second level. The primary suite has a fireplace, bay windows, space for a seating area and a bathroom with a separate tub and shower.
The home also includes an office, a playroom and a gameroom. Outside, the home has a pool and backyard patio space.
The property is on the market for $2,790,000 and is listed by Thomas Bellinger of Compass.
