Description

Incredible opportunity to make your home in a part of River Forest's rich architectural heritage. For the first time in 30 years, this stunning and meticulously maintained 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom Victorian home is ready to change hands. Spanning nearly 5,000 square feet across 4 levels, the home strikes the perfect balance between 21st century fine living while preserving the history and soul of a property constructed over a century ago. Situated on an oversized 75x157 lot, the house radiates curb appeal with its architectural lines, period millwork and 35x20 wrap-around porch which has been host to a great deal of entertaining over the years. Step inside and be greeted by the Victorian foyer with double L-shaped balustrade staircase with decorative newel posts to the right and extra-wide pocket doors leading to the double parlor living room to the left. The living and dining rooms, with their numerous windows and 10ft ceilings, pay homage to the original construction with restored original inlaid hardwood flooring, updated gas "coal basket" fireplace with marble surround, leaded-glass feature windows and restored wood trim throughout with a second set of double-wide pocket doors separating the living and dining rooms. From there, you are transported to a 21st century chef's kitchen worthy of a feature in Architectural Digest with custom cabinetry, a large recessed bump-out picture window above an extra-wide double sink, high-end stainless appliances, including a separate steam convection oven, dual temperature wine locker and well-appointed wet bar with a stunning quartzite cook and eat-in island at the center of it all. Choose between two sets of stairs to continue the tour above, where on the second floor you will find three bedrooms and two full baths, including the primary suite featuring a large dressing room with double closets filled with extensive built-ins and a recently completed private bathroom with warmed marble floors, double vanity sink and a walk-in/sit-down shower. The two other amply-sized bedrooms share a second double vanity full bath followed by a conveniently located laundry room replete with built-in cabinets. Ascend to the third floor to discover a 1,000 square foot open-concept fourth bedroom with full bath that can also serve as a home office and/or additional recreation area. Both the 2nd and 3rd floors boast 9 ft. ceilings which add to their grandeur. Additional amenities include, but are certainly not limited to: dual zone central air and heat; upgraded electric with underground service connection; new 1-inch copper water supply from street (2017); complete replacement of all sash windows to thermal double-pane/double-hung (2014); hard-wired built-in speakers and sound system in living room, kitchen and front porch; first floor powder room (2014); rear deck extension with dedicated gas service to outdoor grill; professional hardscaping and landscaping; and newer 2.5 car garage with concrete side drive. Last but not least, the home is located in an award-winning school district and in close proximity to everything: multiple supermarkets, shopping, dining, entertainment, public transportation, expressways, parks, the River Forest Tennis Club and even a bocce ball court!
