Charming, bright, larger-than-appears home in fantastic Forest Park beckons! The cheery front porch leads into a large foyer showcasing tall ceilings, loads of natural light, and a huge, convenient coat closet and flows to the open concept living and dining areas. The sunlit parlor with pristine crown molding and large bay windows is perfect to gather with loved ones - room enough for multiple conversation areas. Generous dining room features original built-ins and can host your largest holiday gathering - yet is intimate enough for everyday living. Cooking your gourmet meals is an absolute delight in the spacious, updated kitchen featuring a huge butcher block island, miles of granite countertops, loads of charming maple cabinetry, stylish slate floors, and all stainless appliances. Convenient first-floor bedroom (used as an office in COVID-times) and sparkling full bath are ideal for guests or teens. Off the kitchen is a large sunroom offering a handy drop zone and bonus flexible space for working at home or a cozy reading nook. Beautiful natural woodwork, hardwood floors, and large windows throughout this first level. When you're ready to retire, head upstairs to find three bright bedrooms and full bath. Enormous, light-filled primary bedroom features soaring, beamed ceilings, a full wall of double closets, and is a semi-en-suite with access to the family bathroom. The other two generous bedrooms boast wonderful closet space too! Cheery and bright hallway bath with updated tile surround and whirlpool tub rounds out this level. In lower level, the unfinished, dry basement (sump-pump and drain tile system - 2021; flood control prevention system - 2015) is waiting for your creative ideas for when you might need more room. Space galore on the outside too! The large, true double lot with charming paver patio is made for BBQs, summer parties, and playing ball or fetch! Convenient two-car garage plus additional parking space as well, but leave your car at home because this wonderful Forest Park location is walkable to schools, shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, the pool complex, tennis courts, parks, award-winning Roos center, public transportation and a short hop to I290. All the room to roam, character, light, and charm you could want in a great location - this is the one you've been waiting for - welcome home!
