Property Description

THIS IS THE ONE! 2291 Birchwood Lane is a tastefully renovated sprawling ranch situated on over an acre of professionally landscaped grounds, accessed by a circular driveway on one of Northfield's idyllic lanes. Renovated and expanded in 2008, and thoroughly updated in 2017, this home features today's modern design elements including a neutral palette throughout, generously sized rooms with designer fixtures, an entertainer's floor plan highlighted by an open white kitchen with large center island, high-end appliances, walk-in pantry and built-in workstation. The oversized family room and heart of the home has soaring ceilings, beautiful built-ins, wet bar with sink and French doors that lead to the large stone terrace with steps down to the firepit area. Featuring five bedrooms on the main floor, including a master suite with incredible dressing room, the flow of this ranch is incomparable. The lower level boasts a huge Rec Room with 10ft ceilings, full bath, plenty of storage closets, and an optional 6th bedroom/au pair suite. The attached 3 car heated garage with Tesla charger provides abundant storage, and can be accessed through the laundry room adjacent to the mudroom which is complete with lockers, heated floors and more storage. An updated home entertainment and security system is wired throughout to suit today's lifestyle. 2291 Birchwood is located off Sunset Ridge Road just South of Willow, and within close walking distance to Northfield's award winning schools, Clarkson Park and more.
