Welcome to this bright and airy 6 bedroom, 3 bath, jumbo bungalow perfect for working from home and perfect for its easy access to downtown and the suburbs. Enjoy the large layout of the home and its location on an oversized corner lot which allows for a large rear-yard deck with rose gardens, and a side yard great for outdoor recreation. The current owners brought the home to 21st century contemporary living standards both in form and function while preserving the character and good bones associated with homes of its time. The living room has top-of-the line Renewal by Anderson windows, including an envious picture window. Virtually every other window in the home has been replaced and, given the home's favorable exposures and separation from neighboring homes, there is an exceptional amount of natural light throughout. The spacious eat-in kitchen boasts 42-inch Decora shadow gray cabinets, all stainless appliances, quartz countertops, breakfast bar seating, and an adjoining second dining area leading the way to custom blinds-beneath-the-glass sliding patio doors. All three large bathrooms (one per-floor with a double vanity upstairs) have been tastefully renovated with modern materials and finishes. With six above-grade bedrooms each with surprisingly spacious closets, there should be no shortage of sleeping and home office arrangements. And if this were not enough, there's an entire finished basement encompassing the entire footprint of the house, replete with a built-in bar capable of comfortably accommodating a good many neighbors. Behind the scenes, you will find central air and heat, new 200 AMP electric, copper plumbing and a comprehensive flood control system. Easily drive right into your unobstructed two-car garage. Last but not least, there's the location, location, location! The home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood with close proximity to three beautiful playgrounds, and forest preserves to run, bike, play, and enjoy a refreshing walk. It's an easy walk to the Gladstone Park Metra station and is close to the Jefferson Park Blue Line and Metra station via the Milwaukee Ave bus. Importantly, you will find easy access to the major 90 and 94 highways with direct access to downtown, the airports, suburbs and beyond.
