Property Description

A rare offering of a piece of history located in the Historic First Division on almost a half acre of beautifully landscaped piece of property. This well loved family home is one of the oldest structures in the quaint Village of Riverside known for curvilinear streets, ample setbacks, and pastoral parkways. Featured on the Riverside Museum Walking Tour and known for its wraparound porch with decorative bracketed posts, this magnificent stately French Victorian is like no other with 10' - 20' ceiling heights. You will be in awe of the architectural detail, the impeccable condition and the elegance of this home. The majestic foyer leads to the formal living room and dining room both with fireplaces. From the dining room you will find a fabulous kitchen with beautiful cream custom cabinetry and beautiful quartz island and countertops with an adjacent warm and inviting breakfast room/library with fireplace and beautiful French doors that lead to the spectacular music/ballroom/family room with stunning terrazzo floor and breathtaking stained-glass ceiling. The conservatory/sunroom with heated marble floors presents picturesque views of the meticulously landscaped yard. The Music Room and Conservatory have been the center of many family gatherings and provided many happy and loving memories. Off the spacious second floor foyer you are greeted by the massive Primary Suite with fireplace, office, three walk-in cedar closets and private laundry, the second bedroom en suite and the third bedroom with fireplace adjacent to the full hallway bathroom. A huge walk in closet that can be converted back into a bedroom, an additional bedroom, full bath and a large cedar closet can be found on the third floor. The finished basement with a separate exterior entrance features a full second kitchen, laundry, half bath and storage. This beloved home of 37 years is one of the original homes built in the Village of Riverside which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a National Historic Landmark. The unsurpassed natural beauty of greenery, wooded trees and the Des Plaines River, are unparalleled. The Village of Riverside (which includes the Metra station) with its sylvan country-like charm is the product of the landscaping creativity and philosophy of the eminent landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux and is just a 7 minute walk along the serene views of the Des Plaines River. Riverside is located 9 miles west of the Chicago City Center and is easily accessible via Metra and the Interstate. Convenient to Midway, the Interstate and Brookfield Zoo. An era of loving memories has come to an end for this long time family home. It's time for new love and memories to be created here.
