Description

Stately prairie four square centrally located in coveted Frank Lloyd Wright Historic district. Built by noted Danish Oak Park builder, August Christenson, for prominent Chicago businessman, CJ Johnson, it's been in the same family for generations, impeccably maintained and sensibly upgraded from the horse and buggy era to the space age. It's near everything making OP desirable - farmer's market, Ridgeland Commons Athletic center, schools, libraries, shopping, dining, entertainment, public transportation, and yet is a quiet, peaceful retreat. Oak Park's proximity to all the city has to offer and O'Hare is an added plus. The hallmarks of a Scandinavian aesthetic and American arts & crafts, which this home exemplifies, are natural materials, lack of ostentation and contrivance and, most importantly, nature- it's beauty and tranquility are always an integral part of a residence. This home's prominent characteristic is a craftsman interior of -grained old wood, built- ins, cozy fireplace, stained glass, wainscoting. These make you feel sheltered, secure, comfy inside. Large windows, porches, abundant greenery lure you outside to commune with nature in your lovely, private garden. It's country living in a refined urban setting. You enter through an elegant, dramatic 30 X10 porch partially screened by white pines. A deck in the secluded rear garden has a Viking cooktop/rotisserie/grill and handmade picnic table. It overlooks an expansive, lush, fenced garden with specimen trees. There are 2 rear patios, one with a firepit. A bright airy country kitchen with a large pantry between it and the formal dining room is for simple, everyday life with everything in easy reach. All four 2nd floor bedrooms are light and airy, punctuated with green views. One has a balcony. There's a mid-century modern bath. The 3r floor bedroom, occupying the entire floor, is a quiet sanctuary with antique wainscoting, full bath. The modern basement with heated floors was architecturally designed as an adaptable space. It can be your family room, gym, children's space, for guests & in-laws, it's fitted for quick installation of an additional light kitchen, if you desire. It has a private entrance, Bose sound system, spa bath with steam shower, Bain Ultra aromatherapy/chromotherapy/thalassotherapy tub, laundry room. There's a 2-car garage w adjacent exterior space for additional cars. The home's many updates include total rewiring, sprinkler system, landscape lighting with 250 volts in the garage to support an ev charger, rare 3 zone pump driven radiant heat, 2 Bradford White water heaters, sump pump, backflow preventer, new sewer line, replacement windows tilting in for cleaning, and more. Space Pac AC includes the attic. The village has just installed a new green alley.
