Prepare to fall in love. Sitting on the southwest corner of LeMoyne Parkway and Hayes, this traditional brick home greets you with an inspiring garden (featured in the 2017 Oak Park River Forest Garden Walk) & welcoming side entrance. This is a house made for entertaining. As you enter the foyer, the stylish and eclectic vibe is simply captivating. To your right, French doors open to an expansive living room overlooking the parkway through fourteen prairie-style stained glass windows. The wood-burning fireplace is updated with river rock and is flanked by new custom built-in cabinets and a deep mantle. Enjoy multiple seating areas in this inviting space. The dining room, at the center of the home, with its stunning light fixture, boasts six additional stained glass windows & is spacious enough to accommodate larger gatherings. Off of the dining room, relax or mingle in the intimate lounge space with an inviting view of the secluded backyard paradise. (Alternatively, this space would make a great home office, playroom, or eating area.) The large kitchen includes a butler's pantry and features ample storage, contemporary lighting, custom blinds, Silestone countertops, stainless steel appliances, & vintage-inspired subway tile. The light-filled mudroom off the kitchen transitions to the serene backyard space. Here, bluestone pavers, a privacy hedge, and mature evergreens create a secluded space that includes a newer six-person hot tub. A hall closet and elegant powder room complete the first floor. The second floor includes three bedrooms. The primary bedroom is nearly the full width of the home, and offers views of the parkway. The two additional bedrooms are connected by a tandem room, which is currently used as a creative space, but would work equally as well as a playroom, nursery, or home office. The smallest of the secondary bedrooms has its own outdoor covered porch. This floor's full bathroom features beautiful vintage white tile, an updated vanity w/Carrera marble top, new lighting & a new classic beveled mirror. The finished basement spans the full footprint of the home and is a recreational dream. This level includes a large family room (wired for a home theater), project space, office area, recently expanded full bathroom, & a newly refreshed laundry room. You can access the backyard space through a covered entry. The 2-car brick garage has a side apron on Hayes Avenue & can accommodate additional parking. Some updates include a New Boiler (February 2021) Electric service upgraded to 200 amps, and an overhead sewer system with ejector pump added for flood prevention (A full list of improvements is available to download) Get ready to enjoy your best life in this rare corner lot gem. It will win you over the minute you step inside.
