Property Description

Check out the 3d tour link! Just because you are a grown up now doesn't mean you have to give up on the ultimate dream....your very own TREE HOUSE! This Forest Glen Georgian home is updated and immaculately kept with many recent updates! It sits 2 lots that form a pie shape and offer an incredible amount of private and jaw-dropping outdoor living space, all fully fenced with a 6' privacy fence! The tree house is nestled among 10 mature pine/evergreen trees, it is like living in the North Woods in the city!! Endless outdoor entertaining options...there is a 5' diameter fire pit, 2 enormous terraces, grilling area, trails among the pine trees, deck off the kitchen, and a large grassy backyard! Not only is the outdoor space amazing, but the home itself is terrific! This updated 3br home features all hardwood floors, has central air, the roof and deck were replaced in 2020, and spot-tuck-pointing and chimney rebuilt in 2020! The over-sized living room has a bay window, gas fireplace with built-in shelves, and is open to the dining area. The dining area and kitchen are combined to create a large eat-in kitchen! Enjoy island seating for 4-6 people, plus room for a 4+ person dining table. The kitchen includes a kitchen prep sink, and built-in window seating and the current oven will soon be replaced with new stainless-steel oven + microwave combo! The door from the dining/kitchen leads out to a spacious deck and back yard (grass section), and also connects to the terraces and side lot. There is a powder room conveniently located on the first floor, and a side door to the terraces and wooded area of the lot. The 2nd floor has 3 large bedrooms, the master bedroom easily fits a king bed and has double closets! The full bathroom is spa-quality with slate tile and has a corner jacuzzi tub with a skylight, walk-in steam shower with built-in bench, and heated towel bar! The basement is pristine and all open space. Half of the basement is used as a cozy family room with a wood burning fireplace! The floors have all been painted in a terrazzo style apoxy finish and look amazing! The other half of the basement is used for laundry room and storage. There is plenty of room in the basement to add a bathroom if you would like. A drain tile system with sump pump was installed by US Waterproofing about 10 years ago with no water issues since! Tankless hot water heater. Windows are about 10 years old. There is an attic in the home, great for storage. Huge 2.5 car garage, with a pull down ladder to attic storage, and parking for 2 more cars on the driveway! Note, this unique lot is not bordered by an alley on any side! Forest Glen is surrounded by nature....this home is very close to many great Forest Preserve locations with great hiking/biking trails including Forest Glen Woods (just a block away!), Caldwell Woods, Edgebrook Woods, LaBagh Woods, North Park Nature Village! No driving necessary...you can access the North Branch Trail within a couple blocks of this home and bike ~18 miles on paved trails all the way to Skokie Lagoons and Botanic Gardens! Close to 3 golf courses; Edgebrook Golf Course, Billy Caldwell Golf Course, and Bryn Mawr Country Club. Only a couple blocks to the Forest Glen Metra stop. Close to WholeFoods, Marianos, 90/94 and O'Hare. Your wishes have been granted, see you soon!
