Property Description

Calling all buyers with vision and creativity to this lovingly-maintained home on a massive 50-ft-wide lot in Oak Park's highly-desirable Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District. This almost 2000-square-foot house is PRICED TO SELL! Move in and enjoy as it is, or take advantage of the unique opportunity to design and customize updates exactly to your style. A screened-in front porch offers the perfect place to read and relax. The sizable foyer provides a bonus room space. Gorgeous wood flooring spans the entry, living room, and dining room. The eat-in kitchen provides not only ample space for a full table, but endless opportunities for modernization. An adjoining pantry area provides even more kitchen storage, along with a conveniently-placed coat closet. The first-floor powder room has incredibly high ceilings, well-lit by a skylight. The formal dining room boasts beautiful wood built-ins, and leads to an incredibly spacious yet cozy family room addition complemented by a wood-burning fireplace. Gorgeous original wood frames the bedroom doorways on the large second-floor landing, which also features two hallway closets. 4 good-sized bedrooms fill the corners of the second floor, one of which features a walk-in closet. A walk-up attic, offering an additional 500+ square feet of potential living space, awaits your ideas for a master suite, rec room, etc. The basement is ideal for expansion of living space, with great ceiling height. You'll find the washer, dryer, and sink in the utility room of the basement, while the finished portion of the basement offers an opportunity for a rec room, family room, work-from-home office, or guest room. An adorable back deck overlooks a large and lush fully-fenced backyard and 2 1/2 car garage. This home sits on a gorgeous tree-lined street in the highly-rated Mann Elementary School district, and is within walking distance to school (only one block!), parks, and all of the shops and restaurants that downtown Oak Park has to offer. The opportunity to purchase a home of this size for this price - on this magnitude of lot (8000 sq ft!), in this school district - does not come along often. Bring your ideas, imagination, and eye for design to make this beautiful house your perfect home. Buyers can focus on any cosmetic updates they may want, as much of the heavy lifting has already been done! A full roof tear-off and installation of a new 30-year-roof was completed in 2016. A brand-new furnace was installed in November 2020, and the exterior of the home was painted in 2017. Property sold "as-is."
