    Description

    River Forest 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom vintage home that has been timelessly updated. This sun filled home includes tons of windows, wood floors throughout, and a fully renovated main floor bathroom. The kitchen was recently remodeled with shaker cabinets, stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and a peninsula that opens up to the breakfast nook and living room. The kitchen also features a butler's pantry that leads you into the generously sized dining room. The main floor also includes one of the four bedrooms and the family room. The upstairs includes two generously sized bedrooms, a bathroom and a bonus space currently being utilized as a playroom. The lower level boasts the fourth bedroom, copious amounts of bonus space (currently being utilized as a TV area, game area, gym, laundry room and additional storage space with the possibility to build out an additional bathroom). Waterproof flooring and a shut-valve were installed by the previous owners and this has resulted in no water entry into the basement. There is a door from the basement that leads you to the backyard and to the crawl space that provides loads of additional storage. The backyard is a true oasis, with a large deck directly off the breakfast/living area, a back fire pit area and tons or yard space perfect for gardening or playing. Two car garage with even more additional storage. The home has a fabulous heating and cooling system, with a new space pac AC installed in 2018 and the boiler was replaced in 2020. Enjoy the perks of living on a tree lined street while still being 1 block from Madison St., a bustling bar and restaurant area. Lincoln Elementary School, Roosevelt Middle School & Oak Park and River Forest High School.
