Escape to the English Countryside right in beautiful Flossmoor. Close to schools, town and train to the University of Chicago and the city, this charming estate is ready to welcome you home. A classic, beautiful cottage style house, it has all the space you'd want- both inside and out - as well as the updates that you seek. This 4 bedroom home with 3 full baths including two master suites was built in 1925 to exacting standards, and recently updated to meet the needs of a modern family. The curb appeal of this home is striking - from the lush professional landscaping to the magnificent custom cedar thatch roof- the original was replaced only 8 years ago, is fire resistant and should last a lifetime, along with the copper gutters. As you walk into the welcoming foyer you'll get a sense of the warm and inviting nature of the home. The living room has a large beautiful fireplace, and bump out window letting in lovely natural light. The cook's kitchen is a show stopper - with extensive cabinets, multiple pantries, copper farmhouse sink, built in fridge AND refrigerator drawers, as well as a massive stove and breakfast bar. A large farmhouse table graces the dining area. The home has great sightlines but distinct spaces-- the family room is right off of the kitchen with lots of space and built-ins. A convenient first floor laundry is adjacent as well. The rear of the home is a stunning first floor master suite, with gorgeous custom bathroom and large walk in closet. The second floor has another bed/bath suite, and two more bedrooms sharing a beautifully updated hall bath. Plenty of storage too - including a fully floored tall attic with pull down stair. The basement of the home has a great recreation room as well as ample storage. The backyard is unparalleled! A patio is right off the back yard, and then leads to a heated gym, and a bar/entertaining area that has winter enclosures for year round enjoyment. Further seating, with pergola and another firepit area make this an entertainer's dream. Extensive vegetable and easy-care perennial gardens line the back yard of this double lot. 2+ car garage, with large attached shed, and lots of driveway parking round out this incredible property. This property may never again be available in your lifetime - don't miss your opportunity!
