Property Description

Wonderful Center of Town Historic Home. Easy access to all Downtown Oak Park has to offer. This home is also a commuter's dream. Just down the street from the EL and Metra, it is a quick ride or drive into Chicago. The gorgeous open front porch is the perfect entrance to this perfectly located home. Generous rooms throughout, Natural wood trim and cove moldings. 4 bedrooms on second floor plus a finished attic with room to add another full bath and plenty of flexible space. Woodburning fireplace. Dry, unfinished basement. Updates include Zoned A/C, New Boiler (2016), 3 year old roof, newly painted exterior and interior, 200 amp electric, new sewer line out to sidewalk (2017). This is a beautifully maintained family home. While it could benefit from some cosmetic updates, much of the expensive work has been done. It has been true to the historical footprint, but could be easily adapted to fit a more modern aesthetic. Wouldn't you love to live in the Heart of Oak Park?
