This 5 Bed and 3 Bath walk-out bungalow, with fully appointed 2 bed suite, is set on a spacious lot backing on forest preserve within the upscale subdivision of Sunset Woods. A sheltered entranceway leads you into the dramatic living area. The knock-down plaster ceilings rise to a grand 11 feet with crown in the living room, featuring a fireplace with a custom surround for your art collection or big screen. Windows face into the sunny balcony and magnificent cedars which flank the back garden. Nine-foot ceilings, large windows and gleaming hardwood floors lend continuity to the main floor. The Chef's Kitchen has stacked espresso maple cabinets, an over-sized island, granite counters, gas range with custom back-splash and stainless appliances, including a newer Bosch dishwasher. The spacious master bedroom faces the forest and offers a walk-in closet, 4-piece en-suite with shower and separate soaker tub. Two other spacious, bedrooms complete the excellent floor plan on the main floor. The fully finished lower level provides flexible living space with a separate office and large family room with direct access to the sheltered rear deck. A few steps take you into a landscaped patio with raised beds and meandering granite pathways. The rustic staircase leads you down to the forest floor, a dry creek bed and into the forest grotto. Also, on the lower level is the sunny and spacious two-bedroom suite which will be perfect for family or guests. It also offers great revenue potential. The suite has its own laundry and designated off-street parking; its Mediterranean-style landscaped courtyard will be a delight to either guests or tenants. The suite also has its own staircase, entrance and garden space to ensure privacy. This home offers low maintenance bee-friendly, perennial landscaping and natural gas heating, as well as some new home warranty remaining. This property has been well loved, impeccably maintained, and offers a new owner natural beauty and a luxury lifestyle.
