This home has been loved and owned by the same family for all of the 95 years this home has been built near West Kankakee and on the Kankakee River! This family is looking for another family to preserve and improve this home even more. This home was remodeled in 2007 with new plumbing, new wiring, new furnace, new central air, new water heater, new Pella double hung vinyl windows and exterior doors. Many other updates, too! This home is great for post-COVID entertaining with its open floor plan between the kitchen, the dining area and the living room! Yet for privacy and quiet there are 2 bedrooms near the back of the home separated by the full bathroom. The other bedroom is in the front and is separated from the other bedrooms and could be used as either a bedroom or an office. The basement is unfinished with concrete walls and a newer bathroom. Also, the big bonus is there is a walk up attic that may be possible to finish for extra living space. Or just leave it unfinished for storage. There is a back door that leads back to the back yard and steps that take you down to the beautiful Kankakee River for canoeing or fishing! You can even canoe down to the State Park for even more fun & relaxation! Decorate the fence with grape vines harkening back to the day when the present owner's great grandfather had a vineyard on the property! Plenty of yard for a garden or raised garden beds. You can walk out the front door to the open front porch and relax or walk down the street to the riverfront park for your kids or grandkids and walking trail for yourself. Or bike along the Riverfront Trail down the street west approx. 4 blocks to 2 other parks and the Kankakee County Museum along with many schools and churches. Also, within a 5 minute drive is Ace Hardware, WalMart, Tractor Supply Co., Kankakee Community College, River Road Ball Fields, Ice Valley Centre for ice skating, Splash Valley Aquatic Center, downtown Kankakee and its famous Farmers Market and more! Within 1 hour commute to downtown Chicago and Grant Park to access the museums, arts, professional sports, the lakefront, friends, family and more! Ask for 1 year AHS brand home warranty! If this is your primary home, you can reduce your real estate taxes by applying for a Homestead Exemption! Don't delay, own this home before its gone!
