This wonderful five bedroom home is in a highly sought after location in Forest Hills of Western Springs and is much larger than it looks and has a beautiful deep backyard! The convenience of walking to the downtown, train, parks and several outstanding schools can't be emphasized enough! Inside and outside, this house is spacious and spotless! There are loads of windows throughout and the versatile floor plan has 5-6 bedrooms (4 upstairs and two on the first floor), 4 bathrooms, a full finished basement and a sun-room/mudroom. The large living room has hardwood floors and a stunning picture window that overlooks the beautiful tree-lined Woodland Avenue and is open to the dining room and beautiful turned staircase. The living room and dining room offer an open concept that is perfect for larger gatherings. The eat-in kitchen has plenty of cabinets and counter-space and there is a huge walk-in pantry offering loads of storage. Two more spacious rooms on the first floor (one with a large walk-in closet) are currently used as a home office and TV room, yet using them as first floor bedrooms with a full bathroom is a great option if needed. Another important first floor space is the charming sunroom/mudroom with exposed brick that is near the kitchen and leads right out to the private patio and backyard. The second floor addition is well thought out offering loads of space including a large primary-suite with walk-in closet and large bathroom with a double vanity, 3 other large bedrooms with good closet space, a hall bath with double vanity, separate bathtub & shower and a pull-down stair to an attic for great storage. The huge full basement is finished and offers loads of playroom for all age levels and there's a full bathroom! Whether looking for another TV area, game area, work-out room or bar, this basement has room for all of those things. There's also a storage room/workshop and a laundry room. The private backyard is so nice with mature trees, a newer concrete patio, a storage shed for yard items and it is fenced in. Other notables; zoned heating and cooling, roof done in 2012, the garage is attached to the home, the double wide driveway has room for 4 cars and the sturdy exterior means low maintenance. A home like this is truly a rare find in such a desirable location!
