Live in a little bit of Downers Grove history and enjoy the charm of an old town with all the modern conveniences on a HUGE 100 x 295 LOT. If location is important to you, this home is located only a few minutes from the train station, two interstate expressways, a fire station, Good Samaritan Hospital, shopping, and restaurants. Your kids will go to award winning Downers Grove north schools. The grade school is smaller and more personal and is located directly behind the home so your children don't even have to cross a street at Belle Aire Elementary. Herrick Junior High and Downers Grove North High School are about a half mile easy walk. A beautiful neighborhood park is only a block away. The Burlington Northern commuter train has three stops in Downers Grove and there are several Pace bus stops within a few blocks. You can enjoy a friendly, renovated downtown with restaurants and shopping, many seasonal festivals, Friday night antique car shows, acclaimed Downers Grove parks and a new recreational facility. The home was the original home on the street and was a small farm whose acreage was sold over the years. There are maple and oak hardwood floors throughout the entire house and gorgeous restored woodwork including a colonnade with built in book cases between the living room and dining room. The original front door has beveled glass and all the wood doors have original brass hardware. A large family room has built in window boxes with storage and a large closet. The dining room has a bow window with a lovely view of the neighborhood. The large country kitchen is next to a big, functional mudroom and the breakfast room opens to a large screened porch. The master suite has a walk in closet and a large bathroom. All three bathrooms are ceramic and have pedestal sinks, two have claw foot bathtubs. Refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, washer & dryer are included. Many improvements have been made to the original house. The electric service has been updated with much rewiring and new circuit breakers. Much of the plumbing has been replaced and updated. The house has city water and has a reverse osmosis water system for the kitchen. The house is heated with hot water heat, cast iron radiators and the boiler was new in 1998. The lot is 3/4 acre of wooded seclusion with perennial gardens on a 100 x 295 lot, and brick front walk. Many hardwood trees, flowering trees and evergreens make this yard a year round pleasure you can enjoy from the screened back porch, the florida front porch, and the many large windows.
