If you are looking for a quality home with a bright, fresh, luxury interior this may be it. This townhome is in a class by itself. It is not typical of other homes in the neighborhood and its value cannot be determined by looking at comps.
This is an extremely strong, stable, and durable structure. Unlike newer mass-produced fabrications, the foundation, underpinnings, supports, and truss beams are constructed entirely of concrete and steel. The exterior is brick, not wood or particle board siding. The units are separated by concrete partitions on both sides, which effectively soundproofs you from your neighbors. This unit has a walk-out basement with sliding glass doors.
It has a spacious 2050 sq.ft. of finished living area plus another 425 sq.ft. of unfinished area. The master bedroom is quite large with a bay window overlooking the park and features a double-door entry and a walk-in closet. It has two full bathrooms upstairs, both with showers. One is a private bath off the master bedroom and the other has a shower-tub combination. There is an additional half bath on the main floor. The house and attic are well insulated. Storm windows have been added to all windows.
The kitchen has been repainted, remodeled and modernized. It is bright, beautiful, and spacious. This includes all new counter tops with colorful ceramic tile backsplashes and lovely white ceramic tile on the floor. It has a new refrigerator and new over-the-range microwave. The remodeled kitchen comes with an added island and bar combination with new island cabinets that feature double roll-out drawers for pantry storage. Also included are two new padded swivel barstools with comfortable backs.
The highest quality, thickest, plushest carpet was chosen. The flooring in the foyer and powder room have been replaced with white ceramic tile. The flooring in the dining room and downstairs rec room have been replaced with luxury vinyl planking. This planking is superior to laminate and unlike laminate it is water-proof. The foyer has a new crystal glass chandelier. A new programmable thermostat has been installed. The faucets in all three bathrooms have been replaced with new single-handle style modern versions.
The location is fantastic. It is near Lake Forest Mall, a library, a fire station, day care centers, great schools, I-270, and a short drive to the Metro station. It is easily within walking distance of the Village Lake, a strip mall, the local swimming pool, and various tennis courts. It is far enough away from the main access avenue to be quiet and peaceful. It backs right on to a park with ponds and a network of bicycle/jogging trails.
The home has been newly repainted both inside and out. The entire interior was just repainted before the new carpet was installed. All exterior wood was sanded, caulked, and repainted. Any old wood that had weathered was replaced. The front bricks were thoroughly power washed and freshly painted
