Awake every day to beautiful lake views! Whether from your bedroom, kitchen, dining area, or living room - even your balcony. The Chicago skyline is visible, too. This 1 bedroom with den home is the perfect Goldilocks option if you find the typical 1 bedroom too small yet don't need the space and tax/assessment expenses of a 2 bedroom. Plus, love the move-in ready convenience of the updates and condition in this condo at the full amenity Optima Horizons Association. The kitchen has all new cabinets, quartz counters, INDUCTION cooktop, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave, backsplash, flooring, lighting and more. Its redesigned layout provides open, unobstructed lake views by eliminating the unsightly overhanging cabinets above the island typical in the original build. The bath is refreshed with a new double vanity, faucets, toilet, and flooring. In fact, flooring throughout the home is newly installed durable ez-care waterproof vinyl you'll think is wood. The in-unit washer/dryer is brand new. The living room and bedroom feature power window blinds, including blackout style in the bedroom for when you want to snuggle in bed a bit longer. The den provides great work-at-home space (yet also note the nook for a desk in the bedroom, too) that can double as a guest room or TV room or whatever extra need you have. Walk-in closet by the entry plus plentiful closets in the bedroom and by the bath provide great storage. TWO deeded garage spots! Only because of the call of career opportunities does the seller reluctantly give up this dreamy space and offer it to become your new home.
