Description

OWN A PART OF FLOSSMOOR HISTORY! Only four families have owned this 1903 home - will you be the fifth? The current owners have turned this home into the best it's ever been - restoring the woodwork to its original glory, updating the systems, and adding a large kitchen and family room. Just four doors down from charming downtown Flossmoor you will find this beautiful three-story American Four Square on a double lot. Walk up the brick path and onto the enclosed porch, perfect for visiting with neighbors or watching the world go by. The original doors and knobs that lead you into and through the vestibule give you the first taste of the exquisite craftsmanship that lies beyond. From the foyer you are open to the original parlor, used now as a music room. Across the hall is the formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace, now used as a spacious study. Beyond that is the large, yet intimate formal dining room, with built-ins and French doors, separated from the study by 8 foot, original pocket doors.. At the rear of the home is the newest part - a gorgeous and wonderfully laid out kitchen, breakfast and family room grouping with slate floors and extensive windows allowing in lots of natural light. The addition and all baths feature radiant heated floors, while other rooms feature restored, antique filigreed radiators. The house has central air conditioning, with separate units for each of the three floors. A large deck with low maintenance composite decking wraps around the back and south side of the house. The woodwork on the staircase leading to the upper floors is stunning and was meticulously restored from under layers of paint. On the first floor, there are original, quarter sawn oak floors, while the second floor features solid cherry flooring. On the second floor is the master suite, with a walk-in closet and a very large bath with a huge shower and whirlpool soaking tub served by a dedicated hot water heater.. Two additional generously sized bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath. The laundry was relocated to this floor for the most convenience. The third floor is a small step back in time. Likely the original household staff quarters, a previous owner transformed it into a huge bedroom with capacious built-ins, used by this owner as a recreation room with pool table and seating areas. A separate old bedroom is used currently for storage, and there is yet another large storage room and a full bath. A pull-down stair gives access to the large, stand-up attic, providing even more convenient storage. The house is prewired for ethernet, video, and in-wall speakers, in most rooms. The exterior features much new, but harmonious, hardscape, including an inviting side entrance to the mudroom, and providing access to the oversized 2 car detached garage (which has historical significance!).Gardening records go back 80 years. The roof on this home was replaced just weeks ago, and the entire exterior, including the original redwood siding, ornamentation, and window casements were recently restored and painted in period colours The current owners have been magnificent stewards of this property, and are ready to pass it on to another family to love. This home is less than 800 feet from the Metra Electric station, with very convenient trains to the University of Chicago (express trains are only 22 minutes) and to downtown Chicago. Easy expressway access as well.
