Property tax reduction! The Cook County Assessor just notified the homeowners (July of 2020) that the property's assessed value has been reduced by 9%. One of a kind estate home, in one of River Forest's most beautiful blocks, featuring several original and beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright houses. The home was purchased by the current owners from Chicago Cubs' former starting All-Star pitcher, Carlos Zambrano, and has many high-end features. 06 Edgewood is the only newer construction home on the block, having been built in 1997. It combines the best of both worlds: a beautiful historical setting and today's desirable features. The home is a 6 minute walk to the River Forest Metra station, making the commute downtown extraordinarily convenient. It also is one block from Thatcher Woods, a large public forest with miles and miles of paths for walking and biking, and the Trail Side Museum, an indoor museum with an outdoor zoo (coyotes, hawks, owls, foxes, etc.) - a very popular attraction for kids and adults. The exterior of the home is nice, but elegantly understated. A pretty front yard, a spacious attached three car garage and an attractive fenced-in back yard. The interior is phenomenal. The first floor has an open floor-plan. A large foyer leads to a large dining room and modern kitchen. The beautiful kitchen has a professional 8 burner stainless steel stove, a very large island, stunning white quartzite countertops, a built-in large warming drawer, built-in double ovens, built-in microwave, built-in large refrigerator and freezer, and custom top-of-the-line cabinetry with many extraordinary features - truly a chef's dream kitchen. A very large living room, with 20 ft high ceilings, large sky-lights and a large window wall is next to the kitchen - it is a lovely bright space, with tons of natural light, perfect for experiencing the outdoors from the comforts of the inside (a wonderful perk during our long cold weather seasons) and for hanging art. Next to the living room is a gorgeous office, with custom built-in cabinetry and custom designed and crafted wood ceiling. Next to the office is a half-bathroom and the large master bedroom area, including three walk-in closets and a large master bathroom. There are many other details, including new 8 foot mahogany doors, new wide plank oak floors, new furnace and new water heater. The layout of the second floor is a large loft family room, flanked on each side by one large bathroom and two bedrooms, for a total of 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The loft has beautiful views of the Winslow House and is fully wired for entertainment, including built in ceiling speakers. The basement is a true gem. High ceilings, a pool table and gaming table area, a full custom designed and built bar, a 1000+ custom designed and built and temperature controlled wine room, a large exercise room, a full bathroom, another bedroom and tons of storage. Don't let this one be the one that got away! Click on the video of this listing to view a professional drone video of the entire house. Flying through the home is a neat visual experience and the next best thing to visiting in person.
