Property Description

This is the home you've been waiting for, never before on the market. This stately, classic brick Tudor-style home was custom built by the current owner and wonderfully designed by James Tharp. Built with true craftsmanship, high-quality construction, and affixed 16 feet above street level. The home is located in one of the most private, serene settings in Palos Park. An absolutely beautiful 1.3-acre wooded lot that is set on a cul-de-sac backing up to the Forest Preserve and Tampier Lake creating beautiful views from every room of the home. The lush gardens, mature trees, and water views adorn the stately grounds. A chef's kitchen features a sub-zero fridge, commercial-grade Wolf range, granite countertops, travertine backsplash, butcher block island, and breakfast room. Perfect for entertaining, the formal dining and living room leads into a dramatic 2 story family room with an impressive stone fireplace, wood-burning/gas start. The family and living rooms lead out to a large back deck with a gas grill hook up. There is a lovely 12 ft. screened gazebo and paver walkway alongside the home leading back into a convenient mudroom/laundry room with the attached 3 car garage. The primary suite has a generous walk-in closet, a large bathroom with a double bowl sink, a shower room, and a separate tub. A private sitting room and an open loft-both spaces are flexible in use for relaxing or working from home. An additional office upstairs has a generous walk-in closet with a large window. The first-floor den has a wall of built-in bookcases and a wood-burning fireplace. The space is perfect as a library or 5th bedroom for guests unable to use stairs. The first floor has a full bath as well. The 10 foot ceiling basement is perfectly laid out with a game/rec room, a 3rd fireplace, media room, exercise room, and plenty of storage. An optional additional bedroom downstairs provides a flexible floorplan for the buyer: the powder room is plumbed for a full bath expansion. City water and sewer. Additional updates include low E glass Pella windows, new roof 2016, new driveway 2013, central vac system, ecobee smart thermostats, and more. The list of improvements goes on! A must-see home!
