This newly constructed 3600 square foot house is on one of the best streets in Oak Park, this home blends seamlessly with its neighbors—Frank Lloyd Wright is right next door!—but the interior is designed for today’s lifestyle.

The overall aesthetic of the house is French farmhouse revival on the exterior and urban farmhouse on the interior. The house boasts 5 bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms. At the front of the house is the living room with a wood burning fireplace and an office, or possible 5th bedroom, across the hall. The open floor plan on the first floor connects, the kitchen, dining and family room seamlessly. The kitchen has a large island that makes everyday kitchen prep and entertaining easy and enjoyable. The kitchen has top of line appliances, including a Bertazzoni range, wall ovens, refrigerator, dishwasher a microwave drawer and refrigerated snack drawers. The kitchen also has a walk in pantry. Off the back family room, there is a mudroom clad in shiplap and a new half  bathroom with easy access to the backyard.

The primary bedroom suite is on the second floor and at the back of the house which gets amazing natural light. There are two walk in closets with plenty of storage. The primary bathroom feels like a spa with a  soaking tub, a stand-alone limestone tiled shower, a double sink vanity, heated floors and beautiful glass accents. A second bedroom has an en suite bathroom and is located at the front of the house. Two more bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. Laundry is located on the second floor with storage and room to fold laundry.
