Property Description

Let's talk room with a view! Wake up each morning with a tranquil view of the forest preserve. You may even spot a deer or 3! This lovingly cared for brick home has been in the same family for 70 years. Although in good condition it will be sold "as is." The living room has a huge picture window making you feel like you live in the enchanted forest. It has a very large dining room for those special dinners. The kitchen is white with an attached breakfast room. There are 3 nice sized bedrooms with ample closet space and 1.1 baths. The family room overlooks the beautifully landscaped'll be sure to see Peter Rabbit and his family. You'll love the finished basement with built in bar. Now let's talk location. You're one block from the River Forest Metra and Keystone Park. A short walk to award winning Lincoln School. Trailside Museum is right down the street. Hop on I-290 at DesPlaines for a seamless commute to the city or western suburbs. The River Forest Jewel is on Lake Street along with the River Forest Town Center which is home to Whole Foods, Panera, DSW Shoes, and Starbuck's just to name a few. Please note the kitchen appliances are excluded. This is a home where memories are made. Don't miss the bomb shelter in the basement that was built in the 60's. Very cool.
