One of a kind estate home, in one of River Forest's most beautiful blocks, featuring several original Frank Lloyd Wright residences. The home was purchased by the current owners from Chicago Cubs' former starting All-Star pitcher, Carlos Zambrano, and has many high-end features. 506 Edgewood is the only newer construction home on the block, having been built in 1997. The home was completely remodeled in 2015. Multiple rooms of the home were repainted in 2021 and every other room was touched-up, so everything looks superb and is in like new condition. It combines the best of both worlds: a beautiful historical setting and today's desirable features. The home is a 6 minute walk to the River Forest Metra station, making the commute downtown extraordinarily convenient. It also is one block from Thatcher Woods, a large public forest with miles and miles of paths for walking and biking, and the Trail Side Museum, an indoor museum with an outdoor zoo (coyotes, hawks, owls, foxes, etc.) - a popular attraction for kids and adults. The interior of this large home is phenomenal! The first floor has an open floor-plan. A large foyer leads to a large dining room and modern kitchen. The beautiful kitchen has a professional 8 burner stainless steel stove, a very large island, stunning white quartzite countertops, a built-in large warming drawer, built-in double ovens, built-in microwave, built-in large refrigerator and freezer, and custom top-of-the-line cabinetry with many extraordinary features - truly a chef's dream kitchen. A very large living room, with 20 ft high ceilings, large sky-lights and a large window wall is next to the kitchen - it is a lovely bright space, with tons of natural light, perfect for experiencing the outdoors from the comforts of the inside (a wonderful perk during our long cold weather seasons) and for hanging art. Next to the living room is a classy home-office built by master craftspersons, including custom built-in cabinetry, wood ceiling and fire place. Next to the office is a half-bathroom and the large master bedroom area, including three walk-in closets (offering an extraordinary amount of space) and a large master bathroom. There are too many other details to list. The layout of the second floor is a large loft family room, flanked on each side by one large bathroom and two bedrooms, for a total of 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The loft has beautiful views of Frank Lloyd Wright's Winslow House and is fully wired for entertainment, including built in ceiling speakers. The basement is a true gem. Tall ceilings, space for a pool table and gaming table, a full custom built bar, a 1000+ custom built and temperature controlled wine room, a large exercise room, a full bathroom, another bedroom and tons of storage. The back-yard is nicely landscaped with a deck and includes a beautiful new custom built cedar fence installed in 2021 that fully encloses the backyard with cedar gates on both sides - a private place perfect for entertainment and to let little kids or dogs run around freely without any worries. The large front drive-way leads to a spacious attached three car garage with loads of storage in the form of custom cabinets and shelving. Don't let this one get away!
