This lovely and inviting Forest Park home will grab you and never let go! Built in 2005, this 4 bed and 3-1/2 bath gem with newly-refinished floors has a modern floor plan with logical and dynamic flow between spaces for optimal usage and light flow. Once you finish relaxing on the large front porch, walk in to a generous foyer and unobtrusive yet appealing half-bath on the left with sitting room or office to the right, followed by a formal dining room and then on to the large kitchen opening to a grand family room! The kitchen is wonderful with stainless appliances, granite counters, tall cabinets and large island for entertaining, complete with extra cabinets and counter-space. Space adjacent can serve as another eating area or light-filled reading nook. Just past that, a spacious back deck overlooks the yard and 2-car garage. Even the staircase up is impressive – wide and light-filled, it carries you to the second floor with a super floorplan for the 4 sleeping quarters – large primary bedroom and second bedroom offer en suite baths, with a very spacious and unique jack-and-jill bathroom setup between bedrooms 3 and 4. Comfort and privacy abound on this floor! A side-entrance mudroom leads you to the lower level, which is somewhat structured and plumbed and ready for your ideas to finish. The 10-foot ceilings add to its flexibility, and there’s already an awesome workshop in place! As for the neighborhood amenities, it’s a short walk to the library, all the retail/restaurants on Madison (Petra Falafel, Kribi Coffee, Twisted Cookie, multiple public parks, the el-train (green and blue), and of course Oak Park is next door.
