This elegant Dutch Colonial is a must-see! The warm and welcoming entrance leads you into the formal dining room and spacious living room complete with a wood-burning fireplace along with an additional sitting room. The kitchen is adorned with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, an island, and a walk-in pantry. In 2002, a two-story custom addition was constructed onto the back of the home. The first-floor portion of the addition consists of a spacious family room with a gas fireplace, eating area, mudroom, and a spacious screened-in porch. The second-floor addition includes the large master bedroom and ensuite with double vanity, soaking tub, separate shower, private commode, and walk-in closet. There are 4 additional bedrooms on the second floor along with a second full bath with a walk-in shower and a highly desired laundry room. In 2017, the maple wood floors throughout the house were refinished with a dark walnut shade and the hardwood trim with a fresh white color. The expansive third-floor multi-purpose room is heated and air-conditioned and features a huge walk-in storage area. The unfinished basement contains a full bathroom with a separate shower and tub. The home is located on a corner lot with a three-car extra deep garage. An easy walk to Washington Elementary School, Lincoln Middle School, and Centennial Park, as well as downtown Park Ridge restaurants, shops, and train station. Updates include the roof in April 2010, third-floor furnace in 2018, basement furnace in 2017, refrigerator in May 2020, ION sump pump in June 2020, and two new water heaters in November 2021.
