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. Mechanical room houses new water heater, sump pump and drain tiles. There is an extra area for a workshop, wine cellar, or maybe a sauna - you decide! Convenient path from walk-up exit leads to your yard and oversized-detached 3-car garage with extra external space for parking and possible expansion of garage into an Accessory Dwelling Unit. Newly constructed mudroom and rear entrance lead to freshly quarried flagstone patio. The spacious backyard enclosed by a 6 foot original white wall and security gates is a perfect private oasis or place to entertain your crowd. Enjoy the best of both city and suburban living with shops, restaurants, and public transportation just steps away, and a quick drive to the expressway for commuters. Come see the designer upgrades and reconfigured spaces that elevate this unique home.
