Property Description

The classic Charles Castle House has been meticulously updated for the new day to day living requirements, while retaining its historic beauty. The professionally landscaped outdoor space allows you to feel like you're on vacation in your own backyard. The front facade also went through a complete undertaking with new walkway, stairs and grand veranda to highlight the impressive original entry door which welcomes you into the large foyer with artful arched painted ceiling. Opening from the enchanting foyer is the graciously sized living room with a built-in and impressive working fireplace and full length windows. Flanking the fireplace are french doors leading in to the delightful sunroom, also featuring a working fireplace to enjoy a quiet book or work from home while taking in the streetscape of lovely homes or watching the sun glimmer off the pool! The dining room has custom built-ins and beautiful windows to flood the room with natural light. Custom designed kitchen featuring Liebherr, Bertazonni and Bosch appliances. This spacious, yet efficient kitchen is sure to delight chef and casual cook alike. The kitchen opens to the cozy family room, also with a working fireplace and both these spaces enjoy direct access to the magnificent fenced-in yard with new in-ground pool. The pool has a retractable cover for total safety. The pool area enjoys a large patio and custom pergola making this the perfect spot to entertain a crowd, after all it is BBQ season, or just enjoy the sunshine while taking in nature. While the pool is a focal point there is still plenty of green space to enjoy. Back inside, traverse the grand staircase to the 2nd floor to find a massive primary bedroom suite complete with zen like restful bedroom, spa like en-suite bath, featuring Ann Sacks tile and Restoration Hardware vanities. Not to be missed is the dressing room with double closets. Also part of this suite is a truly delightful tree-top home office for total privacy, Zoom meetings will be more enjoyable from this dedicated space! There are 3 additional large bedrooms on this floor, two share a Jack & Jill full bath and the back bedroom features its own new bath. Up the full stairs to the 3rd floor to find the charming guest suite complete with new bath. Your guests will feel so special in this restful, private space! There is also additional storage in the attic portion of the 3rd floor. The lower level is not to be missed with an additional family room, large 2nd office or craft room and this finished floor also features that much sought after home gym! No crowds just private space to enjoy your workout and just steps from a newer full bath and huge laundry room with exterior access. There is excellent storage but wait! There is more, how about a room with an old safe as a door which the sellers use to store their wine!... How cool is that? This estate property features a 3 car garage with ample storage and room to park on the driveway too. Short walk to school, shopping, the famous Oak Park Farmers Market, parks, the library and more. All this on a quiet tree lined street in the estate section of Oak Park. Enjoy long walks and marvel at the historic architecture you are surrounded by. This was a special home when it was designed, it has been thoughtfully restored and renovated with every attention to detail.
