This Hulbert House combines the very best of beautiful historic architecture and craftsmanship + pride of ownership that will impress you at every turn. Ready to fall in love? This stunning home has 3 levels of living space with 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths- all on a private 50' x 150' lot in the middle of a lush & desirable block w/that front-porch neighborhood feel ... ideally located between the green and blue line trains w/ easy access to I-290 and downtown Oak Park and Forest Park. This home has been loved, restored, and improved by its current owners over 40 years and the woodwork, 15 stained glass windows, and featured original fixtures are exceptional. Light dances through the mature trees and art glass windows and fills this house with a warmth that makes you feel instantly at HOME. The 1st floor sitting room has a gas log fireplace w/a marble surround & hearth that blends perfectly w/ the art glass windows & is convertible to wood-burning. New white oak floors were installed (2010) on the main floor & second floor hallway to match the original. The beautiful dining room will accommodate your entertaining ambitions, and the family room addition off the kitchen has skylights and a remodeled 1/2 bath + pantry, closet and counter space, and opens onto a large deck for grilling and al fresco dining. The lot is impressive and the mature trees give both shade and privacy, keeping things cooler on hot summer days. The exterior features ground-level patio space and low-maintenance perennials, and the options for your outdoor living or home expansion vision are many. Parking is easy, with a modern 2.5 car garage + a fenced parking pad for an additional 2 cars. The lovely 3-season porch is equipped with both screens and storms, making for a comfortable, versatile space and the 2nd floor NE bedroom has a private balcony with treetop & yard views. With 4 bedrooms on the second floor + expansion options in the attic, there is room for everyone. In 2014 the 2nd floor bathroom was gutted and remodeled w/ radiant floor heat, towel warmer, and gorgeous tile work. All the 2nd floor windows were replaced w/ Marvin custom windows, and the hardwood floors refinished as well. Out-of-town visitors will enjoy a guest area in the finished basement, along with a full bath, family room + mini fridge and microwave area. There is a convenient laundry room here + a well-outfitted workshop. No water worries! The basement was professionally waterproofed by US Waterproofing w/ sump pump and battery backup in 2010 (Check valve and clean-out for main sewer installed front yard). This house is simply special.
