Comfort meets style in this classic in-town custom farm-style home. Just three blocks from the train and quaint downtown Downers Grove, this welcoming home stands on a unique, massive lot. This home has stately spacious rooms, with high ceilings, an open floor plan with oversized French doors opening to dining room, living room, sunroom and will meet all of your family needs, year-round, inside and out! The winged front porch offers privacy while enjoying a meal, reading a book or just sitting outside to enjoy a beautiful day - sunny or rainy! Warm and welcoming, the front entry opens to a large foyer and a view of the Sunroom, with a custom barrel ceiling and heated floors. You will also get your first peak at an enormous backyard - complete with custom built fire-pit, a semi-built in above ground pool and free standing hot-tub - not to mention a hill, great for sledding in the winter or slip'n'slide in the summer! There is plenty of room for a 60x80 ice rink, if you are so inclined. You will love the flow of this home. The Mahogany trimmed Living Room opens to the front porch as well as a large Family Room with an oversized, gas ignited wood burning fireplace. The Family Room opens to a gourmet kitchen with classic natural maple cabinetry, granite counters, two islands that allow for tons of counter space. You have a GE Profile high end range, double oven and microwave, glass front sub-zero refrigerator, two sinks, both with garbage disposals, to facilitate ease of preparation: a full stainless-steel kitchen that most only dream of! Gorgeous natural Brazilian Cherry floors are throughout the first floor. The Kitchen flows directly to a tiled mudroom with first floor laundry and a powder room. There is a door to the backyard, so there is no walking through the house with wet feet to use the bathroom! Wide stairs lead to the second and third floors with five bedrooms and four full baths and a full laundry room. The master suite is spacious, has recessed ceiling with custom ceiling lighting, a full suite bath with separate shower and luxury tub with walk in closet with built-in shelving. Two bedrooms have a Jack and Jill bathroom with double sinks and granite counters. Both of these bedrooms have cozy cushioned window seats. The fourth bedroom has a private bath. Another staircase leads to a third floor which sports multiple spaces for living and beds and its own private bath with shower. The basement has high ceilings, a roughed in full bath along with a partly finished recreation room, roughed in fireplace, bonus room, storage room, and a commercial kitchen. The commercial candy kitchen has a 3 well stainless sink, a 10-burner stainless gas range with double gas ovens. The home has a new Carrier high efficiency (96%) furnace with a Ecobee Smart WIFI Thermostat installed in January of 2021 and a new Whirlpool microwave also installed in January of 2021. Comfortable and welcoming, this house will serve your family needs for years to come.
