Blue Island

A beautifully maintained, move-in ready brick Bungalow with the perfect mix of vintage charm and modern updates, located on a tree-lined street across from Memorial Park. The wide living room is surrounded by original windows and has a gas-starter fireplace with stone mantel. Evergreen trees outside provide privacy and shade. The separate dining room is located right off the kitchen, with ample room to seat 8-10 people. A spacious, oasis-like master bedroom with exposed brick on two walls has been created by combining 2 smaller bedrooms, but it could easily be re-divided to create a 3-bedroom home if desired. The kitchen is large enough to eat-in, and has been stylishly updated with butcher-block countertop, stainless appliances, and freshly painted solid maple cabinets. An enclosed sun porch off the kitchen is a great place for plants and enjoying morning coffee in the warmer months. The bathroom has been expanded to include a huge soaking tub, with a new vanity and modern penny tile. The full unfinished walkout basement has plenty of space for storage or hobbies, and plumbing in place for another full bathroom. The 45' wide lot accommodates a side driveway leading to a brick garage with ample room for 2 cars. In the backyard there is a cement patio and stone barbecue for entertaining amidst tons of native flowering plants in a healthy pollinator garden. Mechanical features in this home are cozy radiator heat, central AC, a new super-efficient tankless water heater, and some updated copper plumbing. An integrated whole-house stereo system is also included. This house is wonderfully located in Blue Island right off both I-57 and Metra (less than 30 minutes downtown) for easy commuting. Memorial Park and swimming pool are just down the street. This is a gorgeous, inviting home, ready for new owners to make it theirs.
