Sold on 11/18/16 for $699,000. Exceptional, upgraded Washington Park home boasting four bedrooms and two baths. Centrally located just a short stroll from the park and many local shops and restaurants.  This quintessential bungalow claims the best of today’s modern amenities while paying generous homage to the home’s original era. A rounded front entrance precedes the open concept living room, dining room, and kitchen, studded with arched doorways and built-ins.  Newer kitchen offers stainless appliances (including a five-burner gas stove), first-rate display cabinetry, and a ceramic tile floor. Two bedrooms with ample closet space share an updated full bath to complete the main level. A full, finished basement (featured on HGTV in 2011!)–unparalleled in its renovations and more akin to above ground living space–hosts a sun-filled family room wired with surround sound. The nearby master retreat claims hardwood floors and a ¾ bathroom fit for a spa. A massive walk-in closet loaded with custom built-ins and motion sensor lights serves the master suite. A fourth bedroom or idyllic home office is outfitted with built-in cabinetry, a fireplace with stacked stone surround, hardwood floors, and an egress window. Picturesque yard features two patios, an organic garden bed, and an oversized two car garage with a bonus storage room. Beyond move-in condition, this home includes all new windows (2011), new carpet (2016), central air conditioning (2014), a high-efficiency NG furnace and humidifier (2011), a high capacity hot water heater (2011), a new roof and gutters (2015), included NEST thermostat, and a pet-friendly ADT security system. Rare opportunity to reside in a turnkey home in renowned East Washington Park!
