9223 West 121st Street, Palos Park
A white picket fence, circle drive, and two Latin phrases, etched in the front brick columns, whimsically welcome both fun and good fortune through the wrought iron gates. A true "labor of love" throughout their 20+ years of ownership, this tranquil retreat created many memories with friends and family. A parklike setting with a 25x25 gazebo, a woodshed, and one of the most inviting front porches you'll ever see! All surrounded by beautiful gardens, a variety of trees, brick pathways, and Old St. Louis Lights. Set in Palos Park, known for its timeless elegance, this home has been updated with today's luxuries while maintaining its architectural integrity. Front vestibule serves as an entrance and shelters you from the elements while providing ample space for jackets and shoes. Original maple flooring guides you through the magnificently maintained estate. All the rooms you'd expect in a well designed floorpan with a few extras not forgotten in this time period. A music room with ornate plaster ceiling utilizing over 10,000 pieces. Did you see the winking eye? Just one of many hidden gestures sure to bring a smile. A parlor with large windows overlooking the picturesque grounds. A dining room to share celebrations with coffered ceiling and fireplace. A sunroom with gas fireplace, a heated floor and large travertine tile. Everything you'd expect in a historic masterpiece and then comes the kitchen!. Built-in high end appliances, island with seating, granite counters, glass backsplash...all while maintaining its original charm. Upper levels have 4 large bedrooms and a finished attic that could easily be converted to a 5th bedroom if needed. Keeping true to it's character there is a sink in the bedrooms and in one even a claw bathtub. Back in the day this allowed for simple tasks such as teeth brushing and hand washing while not occupying the main bathroom. Still a great idea today and can easily be transitioned to a personal vanity or wet bar. And then there's the dressing room with custom built ins. Oh Yes...You're going to need a shopping spree. The basement while mostly unfinished highlights the original stone foundation and has a few surprises of its own. A secret passage through the bookcase reveals your own personal space with wine racks to be purposed as you choose. A finished area nearby could make a nice playroom or exercise area. Convenient bathroom and still plenty of storage options. All this and a 4 car garage! Convenient to shopping, dining, library, METRA, and some of the most sought after schools in the area! A step back in time, but oh what a future!
