3608 Harvard is located between Byron and Cowper on a beautiful block in the heart of Highland Park. Originally built in 1994, the home has been lavishly renovated in recent years to look and feel like new construction with today’s modern take on traditional style. High ceilings, smooth finish walls and wide room transitions set the tone of the first floor of the home. A graceful curved staircase is the focal point of an entry hall that blends into spacious dining and living rooms. There are three living areas downstairs, occupying the east side of the house. A painted panel study at the front of the house is accessed through double doors off the living room. The living room, at the center of the house, receives light from all sides and is a beautiful setting with a stone fireplace. Two double openings connecting the living room to the family room contain a fully equipped wet bar and the main level powder room. The family room is large and bright with painted panel walls, stone fireplace and tall windows opening to the backyard. The family room is open to the breakfast room and kitchen area at the west side of the house, creating plenty of open space for a multitasking family. The kitchen has crisp, white cabinetry, white limestone countertops and stainless Viking appliances. A generous butler’s pantry connects it to a beautiful dining room at the front, completing the circular flow of the first level. Upstairs are four spacious bedrooms, each with its own bath. The master suite has sitting area, vaulted ceiling and a breathtaking white marble master bath equipped with separate vanities, his and hers closets, a soaking tub and frameless glass shower. A large game room at the back of the second floor is adjacent to the rear staircase to the kitchen.
An adaptation of traditional for the modern family, this home is beautifully finished and maintained to the nines, needing nothing but your furnishings. You will love the location within easy walking distance of Armstrong Elementary School, and several neighborhood parks including the Highland Park swimming pool.
