Closed / MLS #11711099 / Single Family / River Forest
Listing information updated 3/20/2023 at 4:23pm
Expanded mid-century ranch home in the heart of River Forest on a beautiful block populated by distinguished homes. The home was extensively remodeled in the 1990's, when a huge, well-appointed kitchen was designed with glass doors to a rear deck overlooking a lovely back yard and patio. Two upstairs bedrooms and a large master bath were also added during the 1990 remodel. Most rooms are large and bright. Flexible first floor - room next to kitchen is currently used as a family room but could easily be a formal dining room. The 2nd floor bedrooms have sliding doors to a balcony overlooking back yard. The master bedroom has a walk in closet and an adjoining huge master bath with double sinks, whirlpool tub and separate shower. The finished basement has a large family room with fireplace, a separate wet bar, and recreation area, and a kitchen/laundry room. The fully fenced backyard has a deck, and two separate paver patios, one with a large, unique, brick barbeque/oven. This home needs updating but represents a great opportunity for either a homeowner or a professional contractor/builder who may wish to rehab or expand. This 3 Bedroom/3 bath home is an estate sale and is being sold "as is".
