Property Description

Fabulous curb appeal and a wonderful classic Oak Park Home set on a huge extra deep lot of 150'. Generous setbacks for this home and block create extra wide green space and gorgeous views of this highly sought after tree lined Street. The 800 block of South Kenilworth is regarded as one of Oak Park's extra special locations. Exceptional front porch spans entire width of home with windows on all three sides offering expansive views everywhere you look. An artisan Craftsman entry door welcomes you into this special home. The sellers just completed sanding, staining and finishing all of the oak floors in the foyer, living room, dining room and kitchen and they are gleaming. They also refinished the stairs to second floor and all four bedrooms. Their are also brand new white plantation shades installed on every first floor window. Speaking of windows the owners have replaced the first and second floor windows with comfortable energy efficient thermal pane windows. Beautiful neutral paint throughout the home from the basement through the second floor. The white trim really pops the wood floors. Walking through the living room you will see the gas fireplace with attractive art glass windows over the built in cabinets flanking the fireplace. the living room is open to the dining room which features built cabinets from side to side on the rear wall. Above the buffet their are four colorful art glass windows which also span the width of the buffet. All of the first floor rooms are spacious including the eat in kitchen with a walk-in pantry for great storage and convenience. New plantation shades and newer Craftsman rear door make for an attractive space. The owners removed the older appliances when they refinished the floors. The new owner will probably be updating the kitchen and making it theirs. Their are good size bedrooms and the fourth bedroom would make for a great home office space. The basement was just completly painted, floors walls and ceilings and enjoys nice high ceiling space for an Oak Park Basement. Finally their is the deep extra large deep back yard with a bonus 2.5 car garage and an additional parking space for guests. This is a special home and was enjoyed for 60 years since it was last available to purchase for sale. This could be your home and your new neighborhood. Welcome!
