Potential for $6,000 down payment assistance thru IHDA if you qualify * Check out this swanky 1900+ square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bath MCM (mid-century modern) condo! It's on the 2nd floor in the northeast corner of an ELEVATOR building, nestled away on a quiet yet convenient block at the NW edge of River Forest. You WILL probably want to upgrade the flooring from the shades of slightly shaggy green carpet in the bedrooms, but overall the condo is well on its way to being move-in ready, with the hall bath completely re-done recently with a tasteful white subway tile backdrop & gorgeous marble-topped vanity. Super spacious room sizes, and tell me that wall dividing the kitchen, living, and dining rooms isn't begging for a big opening in it, if not to be completely removed, for a MODERN, open floor plan! Even as it is, the L shaped living and dining rooms flow between the foyer, white cabinet eat-in kitchen, and private east-facing balcony nicely. (Sorry, no grills allowed on the balconies, so you'll have to settle for nearby Russell's BBQ or Jim & Pete's.) Beyond the kitchen is the 3rd bedroom, complete with 2 closets and its hallway door, but opened up at the kitchen side to create a cozy den / office / guest space (could easily be closed back up into a traditional bedroom). The middle bedroom is almost as spacious and easily fits a queen or larger bedroom set. At the end of the hall, the oversized primary suite includes two closets, one a walk-in, and an ensuite vanity area and full bathroom with walk-in shower -- a little reconfiguring of this space could DRAMATICALLY elevate the feel and era of this sweet suite! A+ well maintained elevator building complete with storage lockers, a shared exercise room for residents (and their trainers!), covered parking included, and did I mention central air too? There's just enough time to get in and make it yours before the holidays!

Welcome to the Solomon Thatcher Jr. Home, one of the first and finest homes built in River Forest. This home was built on 516 and 518 Keystone Avenue.

A rare opportunity to own a very distinctive home situated one block from beautiful Keystone Park, and the River Forest Metra train station. This impressive three story home features a Mansard roof, elongated windows, and a welcoming porch and veranda. Solomon built this home with thoughtful, hand crafted millwork. He was a builder that also owned a sawmill which accounts for the incredible selection and execution of the woodwork displayed throughout the home. The home is designed around a grand central foyer with soaring ceilings, 8' pocket doors and a transom of french panes. The foyer and the first floor rooms are filled with art and stained glass, fireplaces, some original gas light sconces, hand carved woodwork, wainscoting, beamed ceilings and more. Moving through the grand foyer is the intimate dining room showcasing warm walnut wainscoting and breathtaking crown moldings found frequently in great Chicago architecture of this period. Off the dining room is a breakfast room flooded with light and panoramic views of the expansive yard and mature trees. The chef's kitchen features custom cabinetry, granite counter tops, an island with seating for six, high-end stainless steel appliances including a professional 48" oven/range, two refrigerators and two dishwashers for quick clean up. Off of the kitchen is a convenient mudroom that includes first floor laundry. This awesome kitchen was selected for the annual Parenthesis Kitchen walk. The home was also featured as an ASID showcase home, a Wright Plus house walk home and was on the 2022 River Forest Historic Homes Tour.
