Welcome to your magazine-featured 4bd/2.5ba oversized corner lot home with one of Glen Ellyn's most unique and luxury garden & outdoor spaces! With almost 4,000 sq ft of total living space including a finished basement, there's plenty of indoor/outdoor room for entertaining and relaxing. Enter through a grand foyer past your private home office, formal dining room, and half-bath to your eat-in chef's kitchen with 42" cabinets, granite countertops, & wine fridge. Open-concept to living room and sitting area with picture windows and gas fireplace. Incredible woodwork details include hardwood floors, wainscoting, and crown molding throughout the home. 4 bedrooms, full 2nd bathroom, and laundry room located on second floor. Bright primary bedroom with natural light from all sides includes en-suite bath with large double-vanity, walk-in glassless marble shower, and walk-in closet. Don't miss the private side entry off kitchen and mudroom, leading you into a fenced-in courtyard with outdoor dining, grill, and hammock area. Walk through your secret hosta garden & flagstone path with pathway lighting to access your organic fruit, vegetable, and herb garden. Established and mature fruit-producing trees: 2 peach trees, 2 pear trees, 1 cherry tree, and 2 espalier apple trees (Macintosh and Gala). Fun fact: "espalier" apple trees are trained to grow horizontally against the backdrop of your home. Unwind in your luxury all-natural stone built-in seating wall & fire-glass gas firepit behind your petite pearl grapevine privacy wall, making you feel like you've been transported to a vineyard in California. Work (and play!) in your finished outdoor shed with wired electrical Edison bulbs, reclaimed wood built-in shelves & workbench countertop, wine fridge, new windows overlooking your garden, and control center for your underground irrigation system, outdoor sound system, and flippable TV to be watched from the shed or firepit. All outdoor electrical lighting & spotlights are hardwired, with solar-powered fencepost caps highlighting your 30x32 sq ft fenced-in garden with defined decomposed granite pathways, corten steel raised beds, and custom vertical wood trellises. Continue to grow your own organic produce, or for a lower maintenance option, fill your garden with perennial herbs and flowers. Additional professional landscaping features 23 Rose of Sharon trees along sidewalk and hardscaped driveway extension with quartstone pavers to accommodate 5+ guests in driveway. Located 5 blocks from Forest Glen Elementary School, 3 blocks from Hadley Junior High School, and less than 1 mile from award-winning Glenbard West High School, train station, and downtown Glen Ellyn.
