Property Description

Comfort meets style in this classic, in-town, custom modern farmhouse. Just three blocks from the train and quaint downtown Downers Grove, this welcoming home stands on a unique, massive lot. You will be within walking distance to the historic Tivoli Theater and Tivoli Bowl, as well as phenomenal restaurants and shopping. Living here is an investment in your children's memories. With stately, spacious rooms, high ceilings, an open floor plan with oversized French doors opening to the dining room, living room, and sunroom, this home will meet all of your family's needs, year-round, inside and out! The inviting winged front porch is perfect for enjoying a meal, reading a book or just sitting outside to enjoy a beautiful day - sunny or rainy! Warm and welcoming, the front entry opens to a large foyer with a direct view of the custom barrel ceilinged Sunroom and an artistically patterned, heated floor. You will also get your first peek at an enormous professionally landscaped backyard - complete with a custom built, gas-ignited fire-pit, a semi-built in, above ground pool and free standing hot-tub - not to mention ... the hill. Great for sledding in the winter or slip'n'sliding in the summer! The flow of this home is amazing: The Mahogany trimmed Living Room opens to the front porch as well as to a spacious Family Room with an oversized, gas ignited, wood burning fireplace. The Family Room opens to a gourmet kitchen with classic, natural maple and painted cabinetry, granite countertops and two islands, one with a butcherblock counter. You will never be short on counterspace in this true chef's kitchen, featuring a GE Profile high end range, double oven and microwave, a glass front sub-zero full refrigerator, two sinks - both with garbage disposals, to facilitate ease of preparation. This is a full stainless-steel appliance kitchen that most only dream of! Hidden in the center island is a heavy appliance, below counter lift shelf in one of the cabinets. Gorgeous natural Brazilian Cherry floors are throughout the first floor. The Kitchen flows directly to a tiled mudroom with a furniture quality 'locker cabinet", first floor commercial-size washer and dryer and a powder room. There is a door from the mudroom to the backyard, so there is no walking through the house with wet feet to use the bathroom! Wide stairs lead to the second and third floors with five (and a potential for 6) bedrooms, four full baths and a full laundry room. The master suite is spacious, with a recessed ceiling, custom ceiling lighting, a full ensuite bath with separate shower and luxury tub. Hidden away, behind the bathroom is a walk-in custom closet, including built-in, solid shelving. Two of the bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom. An extra-long granite counter top with double sinks allow ample primp room for 2 - or more. Both bedrooms adjoining to the bathroom have cozy cushioned window seats and custom closets with built in dressers and shelving. The fourth bedroom, with an incredible view of the park-like backyard, has its own private bath, as well as a custom closet with built in drawers and shelving. A second staircase leads to a finished third floor. This area is a perfect bonus area which includes a built-in sound booth for a budding musician (easily converted to a closet, if preferred) or - thanks to a full bathroom, complete with a shower, this could be another bedroom or guestroom. There is also a storage room that could be easily converted to a 6th bedroom. The partly finished, high ceilinged basement has a roughed in full bath, a roughed in fireplace, bonus room, storage room with a three well utility sink. Your family memories are ready to make in this comfortable and welcoming home for years to come. Additional information, updates and improvements: 3rd floor bath remodeled all new tile, shower, fixtures, vanities; new flooring on third floor and lighting 2022; See documents for more updates and information
