Surprisingly spacious, freshly painted, and freshened up, there is lots to love in this affordable 2BR/2BTH, 2nd-floor ranch located in the desirable Windridge subdivision. Coming out of the private formal entry there is a light and airy feeling created by the vaulted ceilings and large windows. The open floor plan allows the kitchen w/its eating area to open to the big living room and dining room which has sliding glass doors leading to a private deck overlooking green space, trees, and a pond. Both bedrooms are huge with one having its own private, full bath and walk-in closet. The other is next to the 2nd full bath and both have large windows and great light. The 1 1/2 car attached garage makes getting in and out super convenient and the extra depth adds even more storage than already provided by all the big closets. The community is very well managed, has healthy reserves, maintains the grounds and ponds beautifully, and takes its resident's security seriously with well-lit streets and sidewalks and recently updated, auto-on LED lighting on all the buildings. Great schools, and great proximity to almost any amenity you can think of. Library, shopping, dinner, parks, golf course, Springbrook Prairie to walk/hike/bike/chill, and a dog park too. 6 miles to downtown brings a whole other bevy of conveniences with Metra train station, the riverwalk Centennial beach, and more. And the taxes and HOA dues are very reasonable as well. It doesn't have to cost a lot to get a lot.
