Completely remodeled single family home on a very quiet tree-lined street in the highly ranked River Forest school district. The layout has been attentively redesigned by a professional interior designer (Instagram: @inTangerine) with modern lifestyles in mind. Vaulted ceilings with walnut-clad beams, all new windows, and skylight elevate the main living space with an abundance of sunlight and a lofty sense of space. Vintage features such as the impeccably preserved stained glass and built-ins have been integrated as a nod to the bungalow\'s history. Enlarged bedrooms provide extra private space for all members of the family. Oversized Master suite is a haven with heated floors, a walk-in closet, and private bath. Gorgeous sun-drenched kitchen with stainless steel appliances, quartz island and stunning designer fixtures. Let the outstanding southern exposure add sustainability as it will lend perfectly to solar panels. Finished basement has enormous living and storage areas ready for you to customize for your needs.
