From the moment you take the front stairs to the steel entry door with dual sidelights and a storm door, you will know this townhome is special. Upon entering, enjoy the warmth & beauty of the gorgeous oak hardwood floors. Adding to their natural beauty is the fact that they have been laid with three-, five- and seven-inch tongue and groove planks at an angle through the main living areas. Due to the floor plan, as you step down the hall, the planks now flow in a straight pattern. Architecturally detailed ceilings add drama throughout this home with cathedral, vaulted and multiple angled ceilings. Enhancing the central cathedral ceiling is a deep beam running from the loft to the top of the living room`s custom, two-story stone fireplace. Adding to the uniqueness of the fireplace are its one-piece stone hearth and its stone mantel, all highlighted with dimmer eyeball lights. Nestled perfectly on what could be the best lot in the subdivision, this home backs up to the Oak Hills Golf Course and offers a full, wooded view from its oversized deck (which spans the width of the home). The living room & the foyer are two-story in height, while the adjacent formal dining room drops down yet still includes a cathedral ceiling. Since the kitchen boasts a large dining area, you may choose, as this original homeowner has, to create a cozy sitting area in the dining room. This space was customized with an added window that mimicks the cathedral angles. Eight back windows are new. A solid oak staircase leads from the foyer and the living room up to the almost 400-square-foot loft with an open spindle, oak railing, providing views of the foyer & the kitchen. This space is so large that you could divide it in two, producing a third bedroom while maintaining the large loft.
Perfect for entertaining, the flowing floor plan allows your guests to move from room to room and easily transition outdoors. A kitchen wall includes two full-size stationary windows with a center sliding door, giving access to the deck and golf course view. The kitchen offers ample cabinets and an angled design, creating an open space. The double porcelain sink sits in the corner of the plentiful countertops. This room also includes a full pantry and separate storage closets. The bedrooms are separated from each other, allowing you and guests privacy. The master suite is generous in size and amenities with a vaulted ceiling and a bumped-out box window with an 18-inch-deep oak ledge. Your private bath rivals a five-star hotel, with a deep skylight, a ceramic Jacuzzi and a separate shower. It features ceramic flooring, a private lavatory, a large walk-in closet and a double-bowl vanity. The second bedroom has built-in oak shelves and a large double closet. Berber carpeting with upgraded padding fills the bedrooms and the loft. The spacious full bath offers ceramic floors and tub surround, a Kohler toilet, a large single vanity with a marble sink & a waterfall faucet. The unfinished basement boasts high ceilings, allowing for easy completion, a laundry area with its included washer & dryer, a 50-gallon water heater, a Carrier furnace with an Aprilaire humidifier & one-year-new central air. The two-car garage boasts extra insulation, drywalled & painted walls, recessed lighting, a ceiling fan, a raised back storage area and an amazing $2200 epoxy finished floor. Add to all this a location within 30 minutes of Downtown Chicago, Midway Airport and abundant shopping, near highways, schools, parks & the Metra!
