Located in the hub of River Forest is this adorable, perfectly maintained home that checks off all the boxes for the first-time homebuyer or empty nester. Gutted to the studs in 2004 means updated electric, plumbing, lawn irrigation, and a new chimney liner for the wood-burning fireplace located in the first-floor family room. Two bedrooms (+nursery) are upstairs along with a large, full bath with jacuzzi tub, shower, and double vanity. The finished basement has been waterproofed and features a rec room, laundry room, storage room, and the second full bathroom with a Kohler, body spray shower. The deep setback in the front allows for an expansive, quiet front yard while the spacious backyard offers a patio and covered walkway from the 2-car garage. Walk to everything- Metra, Green Line, schools, local shops, Madison St., and steps to Lathrop House Cafe. A fantastic alternative to attached living!
