Lifestyle*Privacy*Arboretum*Peace*MCM-mid-century modern home. With vision for beauty and healing the environment, the sellers spent over 40 years curating a stunning, nature lovers paradise. The home was designed by G. E. Steckmesser in 1954, a student and later full-time employee of the famed Prairie style architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The well maintained home features nearly 4,400 sq ft total, including the full basement. Some unique features include the original inglenook and built-in cabinetry, a lighted, V-shaped plaster barrel ceiling, and horizontal banded woodwork throughout many of the rooms. The large primary bedroom suite includes a home office/sitting room. The 4-season Sunroom with three walls of exterior windows offering stunning views all year round. Kitchen and bathrooms are all updated tastefully and designed to complement the original design. Chevron shaped transom windows are a recurring architectural detail throughout the home and in the redwood and cedar siding too. Full basement has large above-grade windows that sun-drench the room, has exterior access to the backyard, drain tile system, sump pump with backup battery, and crawl space. Zoned central heating and cooling. Original drawings and newer plans remain with the home. More than 100 labeled woodland plants throughout the 0.63 acres. The yard has a koi pond, flagstone pathways, blue stone patio, designated vegetable garden, dreamy year round views of the yard from within the home. Located less than a block from Hillcrest Elementary School. A short distance to downtown Downers Grove and Metra BNSF Downers Grove Main Street stop, close to the Avery Coonley School and Morton Arboretum. Move Confidently!
