This amazing ranch home was lovingly cared for and custom built by the original owner. The location alone is incredible on a private dead-end street across from the walking path and Arrowhead Lake (with picnic area, walking, hiking, running, biking, fishing and cross country skiing). From the moment you walk through the beautiful leaded glass door you will be impressed. The spacious foyer boasts marble flooring and the spiral staircase to the walk-out basement is just stunning. The primary bedroom is truly a private suite with its spacious bedroom area with two closets plus an additional walk-in closet and a private bath including a marble jetted tub and separate shower with marble surround. Private water closet with bidet. The second bedroom has a private full bath and bedrooms three and four share a Jack and Jill bathroom. There is also a half bath for guest use. The formal living room has a bay window to let in tons of light, crown molding, and Pella windows. The formal dining room has a stunning crystal chandelier. The main level family room is spacious with a wet bar and a solid stone fireplace that is just amazing. The kitchen is a chef's dream including Sub-Zero refrigerator, Thermador double oven, recessed lighting, plenty of counters and cabinets with pullouts. The sunroom is cozy and overlooks your backyard oasis. The laundry is on the main level and also has a half bath attached. The walk-out basement is neverending! With plenty of closets including a cedar closet, there is a huge unfinished storage area as well as a room that is currently being used as a wine cellar (wine and shelving do not stay). There is another room with double closets that is currently being used as an exercise room but could have so many uses! The lower level second family room and bar area with a solid stone wall and double patio doors leading to the patio and in-ground pool is incredible. There is a second kitchen plus a full bathroom with changing area for the pool. There is a game room as well. The yard is your own vacation paradise including an inviting in-ground pool with three patio spaces, huge shed, pool/pump house, grass/play area, and two grilling stations with electric and piped in natural gas. You are close to all of the amenities of beautiful Palos Heights but on your own private half acre of peace and tranquility. See pictures for floor plan. 75 gallon hot water tank with recirculating pump (replaced in 2021). 400 amp electric service, central vac system, outdoor sprinkler system, 20x40 pool that is 3 feet around the pool with 10.5 foot deep in the center. Pool heater is 3 years old. 1 furnace replaced in 2023 and 2 others replaced in 2021, central air replaced in 2023. 5th bedroom shares furnace with finished attic area (no central air in attic). Keep your utility bills lower with 1 furnace and A/C unit for bedroom and hallway, 2nd furnace and A/C unit for rest of main level, 3rd furnace and A/C unit for walk-out basement, 4th furnace in garage, and 5th furnace in attic - only use what you will need!
