Only once in a lifetime does a home of this stature and design become available. This is your opportunity to restore one of the most well-known homes in River Forest. This home has undeniable potential. Magnificently built in the Italian Renaissance tradition, this extraordinary home exudes charm, grace and classic elegance in every area. Large in scale at approximately 10,500 square feet; yet intimate spaces throughout. Room for everyone. This house was thoughtfully arranged for entertaining and private family time. Perfectly sized, with 14-foot ceilings, the rooms flow seamlessly from one to another. The antique marble fireplace, inviting living room, and stately dining room are complemented by an enormous four seasons terrace. Upstairs discover an amazing master suite that is framed to include a sunny dressing room, large closet, sauna and a luxurious rain shower bath. Three additional en-suite bedrooms are on the 2nd floor; two with sitting rooms. There is a convenient laundry area and access to the private 3rd floor. The third floor is vast, with a second office, a 5th guest bedroom, two full baths (one with steam shower) and one additional laundry room. The basement has space for a home theater, play room and plenty of storage. This is your unique opportunity to add your personal style and finishing touches that suits your family. This is certainly a home to be admired, treasured and lived in. That is what it was built for - to be enjoyed by all who visit, but to be loved by the lucky ones who live there. Located in the estate section of charming River Forest, commuter village to world-class Chicago. Willard Elementary and Roosevelt Junior High are a short walk away and not too far away from acclaimed Oak Park River Forest, Trinity, and Fenwick High Schools.
