Property Description

Privacy galore sold here in this custom Tuscan-style home tucked away in the exclusive River Forest neighborhood where 26 homesites border the Braden River. Mature trees abound on this 3/4 acre lot with the Williamson's Creek wrapping around the property flowing into the river.

This graced home has four bedrooms, three and a half baths with a den/office, over 3400 square feet of thoughtfully designed space to give maximum independence. Even a Mother-in-Law suite is logistically placed off the kitchen. All bedrooms sport large walk-in closets.

Reflections of the Balcony Overlook are seen along with the customized entertainment center which enhances this grand space. Perfect for those who work remotely or are in school is the adjacent office with masterfully designed 2-sided desk, shelving and styled storage. Step down into the sunny master-suite with two large closets, a delectable bathroom and walk out to the spa and pool through the convenient French doors. You will note the formal dining area off the gathering room and off the kitchen hallway. The kitchen is for those who want a private area with tons of practical spaces designed perfectly for entertaining. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a generously sized bathroom. A circle paver drive entry to an oversized three car garage is found in this unique and desirable River Forest home where neighbors really care about each other. The zeroscape yard envelopes the inviting free form pool with its beach, waterfalls and spa area. You will never want to leave home! Conveniently located near schools, stores and I-75.
