Description

Bigger than it looks! This charming Tudor Cottage offers four bedrooms, two and a half baths and a walk out lower level/basement. On the main floor, you'll find a great open floor plan that runs along the back of the house that seamlessly blends the kitchen with the family room. As you enter 697 Riford from the herringbone styled front brick walk, the charm of this vintage home is evident as you are greeted by a nice sized living room, a side staircase and a cozy dining room. Straight ahead is a hall towards the back of the house where you'll find yourself in a bright, smartly planned cook's kitchen that that is open to the family room. Built in cabinetry under the kitchen peninsula offers a spot for your TV so it doesn't dominate the room and storage space for games, books and what not. The large family room can be arranged for comfy seating in front of the TV and offers a little nook for a small table for casual meals, a round of cards or a board game. Everyday you'll be treated to beautiful changing views of Perry's Pond and Churchill Woods Forest Preserve from the expansive windows along the back of the house from every level. Great updates abound with the new kitchen, master bath and second floor hall bath all completed within the past three years. Though carpeted, wood floors are under the living room, on the stairs and the two front bedrooms. The partially finished walk out basement leads to a spacious brick patio where you can additionally enjoy the wooded pond views. Recent updates include: Master Bath which includes a floating double bowl vanity, standalone soaking tub and separate glass shower - 2021; Kitchen consisting of white cabinets, Bosch stainless appliances (including two under counter ovens), quartz counters, docking station for smart phones & tablets and oak floors - 2020; Second Floor Hall Bath - 2019; Roof/Gutters - 2012; AC (2) 2013 & 2020; Furnaces (2) 2008 & 2019; Washer and Dryer - 2019. 697 Riford is just a mile from downtown Glen Ellyn which includes the ability to pass by pretty Lake Ellyn on your way in to town. Sellers use the fireplace occasionally to burn firelogs and have had no issues, however the fireplace is conveyed AS IS.
