Property Description

Welcome to the enchanting enclave of Oak Park, where history whispers through every leafy street and Ernest Hemingway's legacy lingers in the air like an old friend. Nestled in the heart of this cultural haven, mere minutes from the bustling heartbeat of downtown Chicago, stands a majestic colonial residence, a testament to timeless elegance, refined living and walking distance to the coveted Mann School. Step into this captivating abode, and be instantly bewitched by its expansive floor plan, generously bathed in the golden glow of natural sunlight streaming through abundant windows. The culinary enthusiast's dream, the chef's kitchen beckons with its grandeur-an oversized island, a symphony of stainless steel appliances, and a five-burner oven awaiting your culinary creations. Seamlessly flowing into the dining room and family room, this space is a haven for both everyday living and grand entertaining, where laughter dances amidst the aroma of sumptuous feasts. A second living room, adorned with a majestic wood-burning fireplace and bespoke built-in shelving, invites you to linger and luxuriate, while a sunroom offers a delightful oasis for leisurely afternoons. Ascend to the second level, where three serene bedrooms, alongside a versatile tandem space, await to cocoon you in comfort. Here, convenience meets elegance, with laundry facilities discreetly nestled amidst the living quarters. Noteworthy updates, including a brand-new tear-off roof, a fresh coat of paint that breathes new life into every corner, and a new water heater ensuring modern comfort and peace of mind. Venture outside to discover a charming front deck, where you can bask in the serene beauty of the tree-lined street, while the oversized lot and full basement promise endless possibilities for expansion and exploration. As Frank Lloyd Wright once proclaimed, 'Space is the breath of art.' Indeed, this home is a masterpiece of space, inviting you to savor every breath and revel in the artistry of living. Embrace the allure of Oak Park and make this sanctuary your own-a timeless treasure awaiting its fortunate steward."
