Description

This well kept Colonial is just blocks from downtown Glen Ellyn, train station, Glenbard West HS, and Forest Glen Elementary. Situated on a spacious corner lot, this home boasts beautiful landscaping and mature trees all around. Step inside to hardwood floors and original wood trim throughout. An inviting dining room lies at the center of the home, surrounded by the front room, kitchen, banquette, powder room, and a cozy den. The updated kitchen features granite countertops with stainless steel appliances. The second level offers two bedrooms, a full bath, and the master suite with a large dressing room and master bath. On the third floor is a large bedroom with beautiful dormer window seats and walk-in attic access for additional storage. The finished basement provides an inviting living space complete with a second fireplace and built in entertainment center. A clean workshop with finished floors awaits the next owner along with the laundry room, radon mitigation system (2021), and crawlspace. The fully fenced backyard provides a peaceful retreat with mature trees, perennial plants, a refinished deck (2020), and the detached two car garage. A new sewer clean out was installed at the street 5/22. This home has location, charm, and space!
