Absolutely charming and impeccably maintained bungalow on an oversized lot in Portage Park! Enter the foyer through the original door and mosaic tile floor and walk up into a large, open living room with a fabulous brick decorative fireplace surrounded by built-in bookshelves. Original, untouched woodwork, trim and hardwood floors are everywhere as you go through the separate dining room into the remodeled kitchen with black appliances and granite counters as well as a MultiPure under-cabinet water purification system. The original ironing board cupboard has even been converted into a spice rack! There are 2 good sized bedrooms on the main level and a full bath with a pedestal sink, bath tub and original hexagonal tile. The enclosed back porch has been insulated and turned into a bonus room with a new (level) floor and huge south facing windows that welcome warm breezes. A new staircase to the lower level leads to an enormous open recreation room, bright with glass block windows, a ventless gas fireplace, new carpeting and canned LED lights, and another full bath with a walk-in shower. This space can easily be converted into a 3rd bedroom plus an office. The laundry room has side-by-side machines and a workshop. A lovely, fully fenced-in backyard leads to the original 2-car garage that has been preserved and re-sided. This home has been lovingly cared for down to the smallest detail and is a pleasure to show!
