Property Description

This charming, painted Victorian has been meticulously maintained and updated by the current owners since 1998. The front porch, which was designed and added in 2001 by the owners, has an arched ceiling that echoes the curve of the arched front door with its curved side lights. The home was recognized by "The Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest." It's a gorgeous four bedroom, two and one half bath home that sits on a quiet tree-lined residential cul-de-sac in the Ridgeland/Oak Park Historical District. The entryway has unparalleled mill-work details in the foyer including a hall tree mirror and built-in bench with a lift-lid for storage. An art glass transom center window sets off the bay in the large sun-filled living room. There are gleaming hardwood floors through out. A first floor sun room, which opens through French doors off of the dining room, is currently being used as a home office. Original woodwork and custom paint treatments blend well with the modern amenities of newer kitchen, baths and mechanicals. An extensive Home Improvement breakdown has been added to the additional documents available for agents to share. Four generous bedrooms and a second office space round out the second floor along with a beautifully renovated bath. The third floor attic is "untapped" space. The Dutch roof line lends itself to the potential of 9+ foot ceilings. The third floor could make an incredible primary bedroom with an ensuite bath. The two-car garage was rehabbed (new doors, new siding, new roof) in 2018. The basement, which is protected by a drain tile and sump pump system, has a bath that was a gut rehab in 2020. A 2-level deck, just off of the kitchen, seamlessly blends the inside with the outdoors for ease of entertaining. Two summer block parties, pancake breakfasts, and incredible neighbors await you on the 300 block of South Taylor. Close to Green Line, Pete's Market, farmers market, and schools.
