224 S Kenilworth Avenue Elmhurst, IL 60126
A center of town estate quality gem modernized for today's busy family. A 75x190 lot that will always be in demand steps from the heart of Elmhurst shopping, restaurants and train to the city. For families with young children, Immaculate Conception, Montessori, and Hawthorne elementary as well as 3 children-oriented parks are a couple minutes walk away. This home underwent an extensive renovation in 2008 yet kept much of the original character including rich crown molding, radiator heat, double hung windows, tile roof and copper gutters . What went was the inconvenience of old house infrastructure, completely replaced electrical and plumbing, added ducted AC, in ceiling/wall speakers and a gorgeous functional kitchen with SS appliances and creamy cabinets. Larger than it seems, this home has classic features including formal dining room, living room, eat-in kitchen, hardwood floors, vestibule entryway with original subway tile walls, and relaxing screen porch. Great for a variety of buyers, the first floor has a sunny primary bedroom suite including separate desk/sitting area, marble mosaic tiled bathroom with step-in shower, and walk in closet. On the way up to the second floor there is a roof top deck overlooking the fenced in backyard, firepit, paver patio and grilling area. A robot lawn mower comes with the house so your yard is always trim and neat. 3 bedrooms and newer beautiful white full bath with 2 separate vanity areas are on the second floor. Every bedroom has good sized closets and a desk nook/area and built-in shelves. A laundry shoot to the basement makes it fun for the kids to keep things neat. The basement has an additional external doorway to the backyard so that it can be used for additional bedroom or living space. Currently there is a laundry area and separate workout room, with lots of room left over to finish for whatever your family needs. This home is great to live in as it is, can be expanded or, as is the choice of several neighbors, start fresh on a great lot. Cannot beat this location! Solid home and location that has stood the test of time!
