1521 Forest Avenue



MLS# 09646478


Stunning opportunity in leafy River Forest in thoughtfully designed and perfectly realized "forever" home. Luxury finishes abound in delightful melding of Frank Lloyd Wright with transitional modernism. Few homes approach the handsome curb appeal 1521 achieves with the grace of youth (in a market where aging homes are the norm). And this grace extends easily within where wide plank light oak floors greet you beneath soaring ceiling heights. Radiant heat emanates from each of the home's 3 levels (and within the 3-car garage and the cobbled drive) while sounds, images (and security) are expressed via whole home audio visual system. 4 beds up include posh master with sitting room, dual walk ins and a spa-like bath. Livable and comfortable, 1521 offers a massive amount of space + flow with Bulthaup kitchen, butler pantry and breakfast area with formal living + dining rooms and a stunning family room. A museum quality floating staircase brings floors 1 + 2 together and beckons your arrival.

*Private mortgage insurance is an insurance policy that a residential mortgage lender requires of the borrower if the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio of the home is greater than 80%. Mortgage insurance protects the lender from the risk that the borrower may default on the loan. Federal law requires lenders to notify borrowers when the loan-to-value ratio drops below 80%. Mortgage insurance premiums vary, but generally range from $1,000 to $5,000 a year for an average priced home.
