This stunning American Foursquare house is the special place you've been waiting for. This century old home has the classic Craftsman style you love with all the modern features you need, like all new energy-efficient windows, high-velocity central air, multi-zone heating and more! As you approach the home, you're struck by the uniqueness of its style in this area , with its knee braces, exposed rafter trails and carefully selected colors. The charm continues as you walk through the impressive wood door and notice the exquisitely preserved woodwork which is believed to be original. The spacious living room, anchored by a brick fireplace with wood-burning stove and room-length built-ins reflects the character of this home's early 20th century construction. The modern eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, newer cabinets, and granite counters extends from the front to the rear of the home and opens to a large back deck (composite, low maintenance) which is perfect for outdoor entertaining. French doors lead from the kitchen to the dining room where a large bay window brightens the space. Another set of French doors lead into the heated sunroom where the exposed, unfinished ceiling provides a rustic look. This cozy space will become your favorite spot to relax, soak in the sun or wind down your day with a movie or cuddle up with a good book. Rich wood textures and amazing grain patterns come to life as you climb the staircase to the second floor. There you'll find four nice-sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms including an en-suite master bathroom with tub shower. The master bedroom offers an escape. Two sets of French doors brighten the space but also lead you to a private balcony overlooking the backyard. The third floor has a third full bathroom and two more bedrooms which can be used for guests or a home office. Prepare to entertain in your fully fenced-in two-tier backyard with full deck and patio. A sliding board creatively connects the two levels. Commuting into the city is made easy. The Melrose Park train station is steps from the front door and offers direct service to center city in 20 minutes and the airport. This home has been lovingly improved over the past three years. Thirty-four windows in the home were replaced in 2017, most with Pella architectural series. Stucco was replaced on three sides of the home in 2017 (maintenance-free). The furnace was replaced in 2016 and two additional zones were added. High velocity central air conditioning was also installed in 2016. Other improvements include, new roof (2015), storage shed (2018), recreational vehicle pad with 50Amp circuit (2018), front landscaping and lighting (2018), new carpet in sunroom (2020).
