Description

Welcome to 544 Elm Street. Thoughtfully rehabbed from top to bottom in 2009, this historic, 2-story 1895 farmhouse with classic front porch will capture your heart the second you step in the front door. The custom woodwork, moldings, millwork and built-ins are stunning. Gracious open lay-out for the kitchen/dining/living room, while also creating cozy sitting places whether you prefer to be in front of the fireplace or to relax in the sunroom surrounded by glass on three sides. In fact, every room is filled with an abundance of natural light with rows of large windows which also provide views of the landscaping and mature trees that surround the property, which sits on a 160-foot deep lot that includes a large, detached 2-car garage. Walls were opened up on the 2nd floor as well during the renovation to create a larger full bath with heated floors and convert what was a small 3rd bedroom into a cozy open space perfect for watching your favorite movie, reading or a home office. The rehab also included installation of high quality Hardie Board siding, new windows, central air conditioning, updated electric and plumbing, main floor laundry, mudroom and charming main floor powder room. More recent updates include new appliances in 2020 and new windows and paint in the basement and new asphalt driveway August 2021. Situated across the street from A-rated Forest Glen Elementary, this lovely home is also walking distance to Glenbard West High School, picturesque Lake Ellyn, town, train and restaurants.
