Oak Park

Mature trees, native plantings and stunning curb appeal set this turn-of-the-century Gable-front, Queen Anne farmhouse apart from its peers on a 50x148 lot at the center of Forest Avenue. Original and pristine doors, trim and moldings with craftsman influence still adorn the interior of the home, designed by noted architect, F. Meyer for its original owner, William Meilahu. The brick-paver side drive leads to the new (2016) custom built, 2-car garage and spacious, fully fenced yard. Fire up a fall feast on the 450sf raised rear deck. South-side neighboring lot is wide-open allowing natural light and views to flood the interior of the home. Spacious eat-in kitchen features gleaming maple floors, all stainless appliances and 42" cherry shaker cabinets. Just a half block from Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, enjoy an easy walk or bike to downtown Oak Park, Metra and CTA. 3 bedrooms plus an upstairs office with an optional bed/den adjacent to a newer full bath on the first floor. Full size, side-by-side basement laundry room w/sink and folding area. Abundant storage throughout with plenty of nooks for hobbies, homework and crafts! Best of all, watch the leaves turn from the full length front porch complete with swing and take in the beauty of gorgeous neighboring homes in this historic district.
