215 Franklin
River Forest, IL

Welcome to 215 Franklin in River Forest! This 1911 farmhouse has been beautifully updated while keeping the vintage charm. Upon entering the spacious front porch, complete with seating areas left & right, you'll experience the soaring 10' ceilings and newly finished hardwood floors. The living & dining rooms are huge and as you swing around to the kitchen you'll notice work areas for cooking, eating and home office. The back family room is gorgeous, complete with fireplace and part of a two story addition from 2004. The family room windows span three walls and provide a view of the wrap-around deck and fenced in backyard, expertly landscaped. The integration of the indoor and outdoor space at 215 is unique! Those spaces truly become extra living areas! You can get onto the wrap-around back deck from the dining room and the family room. The front porch is accessed through french doors in the living room and the front door. Upstairs you'll find 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The primary bedroom suite is huge and has 2 walk-in closets and ensuite bath with double sinks and a steam shower - all part of the 2004 addition. There are interior stairs off the hallway to attic storage, so there are plenty of places for all of your treasures. There is parking for 4+ cars with a 3 car garage and a parking pad. The garage apron is deep enough to accommodate parallel parking too. So much heavy lifting has been done! The hardwood floors were recently refinished. The heat and AC systems were all new within the past 5-8 years; new hot water heater in '19; new Dacor oven in '21; new dishwasher in '19. The unfinished basement is desert dry with a complete waterproofing system (incl sump & transferable lifetime warranty) in '17. 215 Franklin is waiting for you!
