This charming 3-bedroom, 3-bath, cape cod home hasn’t been on the market for over 30 years and enjoys a combination of history, warmth, and numerous updates. As you enter the arched-top front door you step into a piece of architectural history. This Sears Catalog Home was built in 1932 and has stood the test of time. The home is full of the original character of the Rochelle Model complete with a fireplace and the addition of a master suite, fully remodeled kitchen, and meticulous care. This home is on one of the loveliest streets in desirable NW Downers Grove.
Inside you will feel the charm of this home and enjoy a newly remodeled kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, limestone flooring, and under-cabinet lighting. The large first floor master bedroom suite addition completed in 2006 includes lots of windows to let the outside in, a master bath with soaker tub, and a separate glass shower. The suite also includes a walk-in closet by California Closets and a laundry room with stackable washer and dryer. This suite can serve as a partial in-law suite or as a master bedroom suite. The addition includes a covered side door leading to a heated garage and a shed for waste bins.
A bonus room off the patio is perfect for a sitting room, playroom, game room, bar/service area, or office. It also serves as a place to expand the dining area to accommodate a larger number of guests for special occasions. Shutters or wood blinds included throughout the home. Complete first floor living is available if needed.
The deck has privacy for entertaining and includes two unique patio door accesses. The large deep lot is a backyard paradise with a canopy of trees to provide shade on hot summer days. The entire yard is a canvas for a gardener’s artistic hand to add to the existing hues of green and pops of vivid colors.
The large basement is partially finished with lots of storage closets. The finished portion of the basement could be used as a music room, bedroom, playroom, or office.
