** Multiple Offers Received. Highest and Best by 7:00 pm on Thu, Jun 1st. ** Charming, stylish, updated and deceptively spacious home on a quiet, tree-lined street beckons! Step onto the inviting front porch and into the large, open living room and be wowed by the tall, sun-drenched southern exposure windows, the gleaming hardwood floors, and the soaring ceilings. This living room is perfect for entertaining friends as well as for cozy nights with loved ones and the generous adjacent bright dining room with tall windows can easily host your biggest holiday gatherings. Whipping up your gourmet meals is a delight in the bright, clean, thoughtfully-designed gut rehabbed kitchen (2019) with all stainless appliances, loads of cabinetry, miles of quartz countertops, an extra deep undermount sink, an appliance nook and even under cabinet heating to keep your tootsies warm! Past the kitchen, you'll find a huge, sunny family room with windows on three sides and so many potential uses - make it the perfect family room, office, craft room or more. A gut rehabbed full bath (2019) with a mix of trendy and classic tile, upgraded fixtures, a deep soaking tub, and a convenient drop zone area round out the first floor. When you're ready to retire, head upstairs where you'll find an elegant primary bed and two additional charming, sun-filled bedrooms. The stylish, fully rehabbed hallway bath (2019) has beautiful finishes and a walk-in shower. The expansive, dry basement boasts new drain tile and sump pump (both 2021) and with its classy luxury vinyl flooring, is open to your ideas for use - workout space, another family room, or play space? Past the clean laundry space (2019) and water heater (2020) is the surprise in the home - a large heated room with its own private entrance that can be used as a bedroom, an office or a space to meet with clients - the possibilities are endless! Al fresco, the double wide lot has beautiful landscaping to enjoy nature with plenty of space for a vegetable gardening or throwing a ball, with a low maintenance concrete patio for warm weather grilling and dining. A newer two-car garage (2018) offers additional room for storage and external parking pad is great for out-of-town guests! So much has been done in this home - blown insulation in attic (2021), all new copper water main (2019), new plumbing (2019), updated electric (2019), new windows (2019-2020) and more! All this on a fabulous, double lot on a lovely, leafy, Forest Park street that's just blocks from public transit, the 290, schools, parks, and all the fun of Madison Street's cafes, shopping, dining, and entertainment. This is the one you've been waiting for - all you have to do is move in and unpack. Welcome home!
