DRASTIC PR$CE REDUCTION, $10,000!!! ACREAGE - SUBDIVISION POSSIBLE!!! Back on the Market due to Buyer Financing issues. Nice well-kept Ranch Home on (almost) secluded 4.2 acres landscape with mature trees in Lake Forest School District. Norman G. Wilder Wildlife Preserve is right around the corner. Brick front and Vinyl Siding with new Architectural Grade Roof Shingles in 2019 and new gutter guards make for easy maintenance. This home boasts 2,352 sq. ft of living area with 3 BR & 2 Full Bath's. Home faces W. Evens Rd. where the 1 car garage can be entered. The long side of the lot extends along Firetower Rd., and the rear property extends all the way to Kersey Rd. where there is 145' frontage. The land is level and cleared except for about a half-acre or that connects to Kersey Rd. The uniqueness of this property is that there is frontage on "3" State Maintained Roads. Subdivision IS possible, but that is up to the new owner. The driveway is connected to the neighbors for convenience only but not a shared driveway. This home can be entered through the Breezeway or the Sun Porch in the front or one of three doors in the back. Living Room #1 has beautiful Pine Tongue & Groove walls and a propane Brick Fireplace (non-functional). Hardwood Floors under carpet. The kitchen is entered through the L.R. or the side door through the Breezeway. The kitchen was recently upgraded to quartz countertops, with DBL SS sink and new Designer Faucet with pull out sprayer, soft close cabinet doors and drawers, under counter lighting, tile flooring and an electric window shade. The second Living Room is 17' X 28' and located down the hallway on the other side of the house. It could be considered a Great Room, but it is just too cozy for that designation. The main BR has 2 closets. Both Full Baths have Step-in Showers. Two (2) additional BR's offer plenty of room. Also, off the hallway between the 2 LR's is a 9' X 10' Office with built-in shelving, and across the hall is a closet with more built-in shelving. The Laundry Room is located in the rear of the home and is where a Whole House Vacuum Unit attached to the wall, and also where the heating system is located. This room is where a lift-up access door to the crawl space. Want to just sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery? This home has an awesome 25' X 5.5' Sun Porch on the front of home facing open fields and tree lined borders. Has upgraded Sliding Windows and Screens. Something you don't see much anymore is a Breezeway (27' X 8') separating the house from the garage. A perfect place for showing off plants and flowers. Entrance to the over-sized single garage with overhead door opener, is through the Breezeway. Plenty of storage and a workbench area here where previous owner did woodworking. There is also PVC duct work that was used for sanders that could easily be restored to usable. Two (2) large sheds located in the rear yard. The largest shed is 25' X 17' with a concrete floor, electric, and a DBL door in the front and a large side door for mower entrance. Shed #2 is also good size, 10' X 16'. Due to the size and the location of the land frontage on Firetower Rd., Subdivision is a go of at least one lot, possibly more. A very unique property. * PLEASE NOTE: A new Septic System & Well HAS BEEN INSTALLED and CERTIFIED just a few months ago! Inherited Property so being sold "As-Is". No Must Sell Contingencies accepted! As we know, acreage and buildable, clear land is scarce these days. Possibilities are limitless so put this unique property on your tour today!
