The first thing that attracted us the neighborhood was the Stevenson HS school district because it is one of the best in the country. Both of our children had excellent experiences there and were very well prepared for college. We wanted a large yard that our kids could play in and safe streets where we could walk and the kids could ride their bikes. The first year we lived there, our son got the autographs of two Chicago Bears football players, as it is a friendly and welcoming neighborhood.
One of the best features of the neighborhood is the parks in the village and the great aquatic center for village residents. We took our grandson there last summer, and we all had a ball! There is also a nice YMCA just 5 minutes away that has been great for staying in shape, but people also walk and jog throughout the neighborhood. It is also very convenient to shopping in many directions whether you head to Lake Zurich, Vernon Hills or Buffalo Grove – they are each about 10 minutes away. There are also summer concerts and fireworks in the park just down the street.
One of the first things that attracted us to the house itself was that it had space for everyone and their interests. All the bedrooms are large and gave everyone plenty of space.
Our house has lots of storage space, including a large furnace room in the basement with built-in shelves, many closets, two attics and the 3-car garage. We loved the huge finished walkout basement where we set up a ping pong table and played a variety of all kinds of games as a family.
The house has been great for entertaining with the easy flow from the dining room, kitchen, family room, porch and deck. We liked the wet bar in the family room which has added to our parties and gatherings. It is newly painted inside and out, and the kitchen has been updated with maintenance free quartz counter tops.
My husband and I each had room for a separate office in the home as well. We have also loved sitting on our deck and watching our kids and their friends play in the yard. We enjoyed grilling on the deck and eating on the back porch. We enjoy watching the perennial flowers like daffodils bloom each spring.
