Effortless in-town living in Lake Forest! Located mere blocks from downtown and West Park, this well-maintained brick and cedar home is a hidden gem. The current owners have lovingly maintained this home inside and out, making numerous updates and modernizations over the years so that it is truly move-in ready for the next owner. A bright, flowing and functional floorplan meets all of the needs of today with a great room featuring fireplace, a wall of built-ins and plantation shutters. Vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors infuse the home with a warm, expansive feeling that will inspire future gatherings. The kitchen opens to a large dining area, making it easy to entertain or prepare meals for loved ones. Rich cherry cabinetry and stainless steel appliances give the kitchen a touch of luxe. Off the kitchen, there's also a lovely den/family room space overlooking the patio in the backyard. A powder room, plus a spacious mudroom and laundry space round out the amenities on the first floor. Upstairs, three bedrooms offer privacy, including a large main bedroom suite with a spacious walk-in closet and bath with dual sinks. The finished basement, freshly completed in 2019, extends the livable square footage of the home with a fun rec room space and home office area - perfect for a Zoom Room. A fully fenced yard, detached two-car garage and low maintenance backyard with an outdoor entertaining patio and gas grill will make this a comfortable domain for years to come. A second-to-none location close to everything Lake Forest has to offer only enhances the property.
