Property Description

An incredible opportunity awaits you! Delight in living in a fantastic neighborhood - 1.5 blocks to the Metra and Keystone Park, 2.5 blocks to Washington Park. Enter through the new front door and be welcomed by beautiful architectural details - gorgeous hardwood floors, archways, and a beautiful curved staircase and railing ascends to the second floor. The massive living room with wood-burning fireplace, beamed ceiling, and built-in shelves opens to a super sunny sunroom, the perfect place to unwind. Entertain family and friends in the elegant dining room with cross-beamed ceiling. The spacious kitchen offers lots of potential including new stainless steel appliances ('19). The master bedroom is so big, it's an ideal candidate for adding a master bath and walk-in closet. The lower level was updated within in the last few years and includes a family room with carpeting and built-ins, modern full bath, nice sized laundry room, bonus area (great for an office or playroom), three storage areas, and drain tile that surrounds the basement. Get ready for lots of outdoor fun in the incredible fenced-in back yard. Statuesque trees provide shade, perennial plants provide beauty, and a patio area the perfect lounging spot. A little cosmetic updating will make this house shine like you wouldn't believe! Seller is offering a $5000 decorating allowance credit to get you started. Don't let this little gem pass you by. Say "Welcome Home" today!
