Property Description

MOVE IN READY!!! GREAT LOCATION!!! Quintessential remodel in the heart of Des Plaines. From the curb to the finished lower level, this pristine modernized gem won't cease to satisfy. The kitchen has a Dacor cooktop, duraceramic floor and Anderson garden window over the sink and boasts an eat-in area with built-in dinette. The basement has porcelain flooring & aspen paneling with built-in office, built-in storage units and light-emitting glass block windows. This home is also equipped with a large cedar lined coat closet providing off-season apparel storage. The 1st floor bathroom has been totally redone with 40" vanity and porcelain floor. This home has recessed lighting, hardwood floors and a Zoeller sump pump w/battery backup. The owner spared no expense by installing Pella windows w/blinds, custom window treatments, Anderson storm doors, Feather River entry doors and Velux electric venting skylights w/rain sensors! Living room has a new remote-controlled direct vent natural gas fireplace with upgraded accessories & all bedrooms have high-quality ceiling fans. It also has a pull down staircase to attic for additional storage. Over-sized 2 1/2 car garage with recently installed opener and top-of-the-line Clopay insulated overhead door. Home has updated 200-amp electrical service with whole-house surge protector and hookup for portable generator, while 70-amp sub-panel in garage provides plenty of power for your workshop or Tesla! Home's exterior features fresh paint, new roof with premium GAF/Elk timberline high definition shingles, aluminum gutters with gutter screens and oversized downspouts. Custom western red cedar deck overlooks the beautiful professionally landscaped yard. New Lennox high efficiency furnace and A/C with new Aprilaire whole house humidifier keeps you feeling comfortable 24/7. Unlike most homes this age, overhead sewers & copper water pipes have replaced the original outdated modes of "delivery". Top all this off with 15-minute drives to Woodfield, Premium Outlets, Rivers casino, and other retail favorites as well as most major thoroughfares, Metra and Pace lines. Short stroll to Prairie Lakes, ponds, mini-golf, batting cages, skate park, playgrounds, indoor/outdoor tracks & fitness center. You are one short walk away to the one and only West Park which includes several sports fields and walking/biking path. Come fall in love with this labor of love and personally view the abundance of amenities not listed here.
