IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A TURN-KEY WITH ALL THE MODERN FINISHES, THIS IS IT! Note from the Sellers... "We bought this house as a foreclosure and have made it into our dream home! We had to put a lot of work into it: new roof, new siding, painted outside and inside, 2 new AC units, new windows, new master bathroom (with HEATED FLOORS), furnace style fireplace, fenced yard, new water heater, new sub pump, new well pump, 2 new heaters, new garage heater, all within the past 6 years. The major things have been done. The open floor plan, basement, and patio have been a dream to host parties and gatherings. We were the hosting house and it was always welcomed! The backyard has been our oasis and we've spent every warm night eating on the patio outside. The fence with the tall arborvitaes have given us a peace of mind for our kids and dog to play in and keeps it very private! The neighbors are amazing, house is near a bike/walking trail, parks, and close to Metra. This house has been very special to us and if it wasn't having our third child... we'd be staying here but hoping this home will treat the next family as well as it did for us. Happy house hunting."
