**Multiple Offers Received. Highest and Best due Monday, May 10th, 5:00p.m.** This stately, side entrance brick Colonial has been meticulously maintained and updated by the current owners since 1986. This gorgeous home sits on one of the most beautiful blocks in Oak Park. The entryway has unparalleled mill-work details in the foyer including a pair of graciously curved symmetrical newel posts and equally well formed hand rails. This is Old-World wood working craftsmanship at its finest. Gleaming hardwood floors throughout take advantage of the abundant natural light streaming in through the MANY over-sized windows. Freshly painted walls in a contemporary neutral palette only enhance the visual flow of this welcoming home. Arched art-glass windows and built in bookcases flank the wood burning fireplace in the large inviting living room to the west of the generous entry foyer. A very open formal dining room is placed east of the entryway and opens to the spacious dine-in kitchen. A dedicated 8' x 8' space is available for a table AND there is also room for some pull up stools at the counter. All stainless steel appliances and a ton of work space square-footage on the solid surface cream colored countertops makes food prep and entertaining an enjoyable team sport. Opening off of the kitchen is an enclosed screened-in porch that feels like a day in the country. A charming powder room renovated in 2020 finishes off the main floor. The high level of millwork carpentry continues up to the second floor. Three good sized bedrooms (plus a large tandem) and two full baths radiate off of the stunning second floor hallway which showcases a beautifully executed handrail and turned balustrades. The primary en-suite bathroom was expanded and gut rehabbed in April of 2021 with an attention to detail, craftsmanship and very well chosen materials. All new water supply lines were brought to it as well as new waste lines. The knotty pine basement has the potential to be a finished rec room with the dimensions of 24' x 15'. Just outside the screened in back porch is a professionally landscaped garden with a brick paver dining area as well as a raised fire pit "hang" space. Ok, let's talk about the garage. 4 plus cars of space, radiant floor heat, duo door car entryways. One off of the alley side and one on the west driveway side. Even the original fascia and soffit details of the house have been painstakingly recreated on the new garage structure. The driveway and apron paving is of an aggregate sealed concrete that gives it a polished sophisticated look with just a touch of sheen. Above the garage space is an ENORMOUS, 24' x 39', multipurpose gathering space (home office, remote learning, family gathering space, home theater room...) with skylights, exposed roof rafters and tongue and groove paneling through out. This family has hosted OPRF high school sport's team dinners in this space...and yes, the pool table with attachable ping-pong table top is staying. Tuck pointed in 2010, H2O heater replace 2020, Spacepak A/C...This is truly a must-see move in ready beaut! Wonderful Block, Wonderful Neighbors, Wonderful Home! Please be sure to check out BOTH of the virtual tours. One is of the house proper, the second is of the garage structure.
