Imagine yourself in a large, brick, custom Georgian home built in 1927 by and for the builder himself. Well, imagine no longer! Restored original vintage charm and installation of all the modern amenities make this house a dream come true. As you walk up to the home you are greeted by a front yard and a covered front porch. Open the front door to a natural foyer and a view through the home and into the backyard offering that open floor plan feel. Natural light pours in from every window in the home with sun from morning until night due to the Eastern and Western exposure. Through the foyer, walk into the living room or into the full Dining room that leads into a library/study overlooking the backyard. Come around the corner and you are at the back of the house with a heated floor kitchen that spans the entire distance between the dining room and library/study. This naturally flowing kitchen has it all: hand selected Brazilian granite, double ovens, a 5 burner gas range, microwave drawer, garbage disposal, garbage compactor, deep sink, double drawer dishwasher, and tons of custom cabinets. Some would call it the ideal "chefs kitchen". Let's make our way to the wide staircase that leads to the 2nd floor. Once upstairs, you will find the primary bedroom facing the front of the home with a custom, en suite bathroom. The other 3 bedrooms are on the other side of the home offering great privacy. There is an extra surprise on this floor! There is a hidden room that has been insulated and carpeted and can only be accessed from the hallway through a hatched door and a custom built-in ladder. This room is a kid's dream! It's great for hiding out, sleepovers, an artist's loft, or anything you can imagine! If this wasn't already enough space, let's take a look at the basement. The basement is half finished. It is currently being used for storage on one side and a rec room on the other. The driveway spans the whole lot (150 feet) with plenty of space for recreation, guest cars, etc. This backyard has it all and is fully fenced! Vegetable and herb gardens, low maintenance perennial and native landscaping, a playset, a water feature, plenty of room for a large patio table and still green space to enjoy. The garage is not your normal garage. To start, it fits 2 cars and then has an extra 5 feet of storage. Make your way to the 2nd floor of the garage to find a custom sound-proofed music studio that could be a second office or home theater room. Imagination was put into full use when designing this home and it still is wowing people to this day! Pride of ownership shows with all of the major updates recently completed: 2021 hot water heater, 2020 house roof, 2019 Pella wood windows, 2017 music studio, 2016 furnace and AC, and 2016 Garage roof.

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. Keystone Avenue is affectionately referred to as "The Street of Dreams" with some of the deepest parkways, setbacks, and yards up to 235' deep. 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. The second floor includes a magnificent hallway with a striking floor to ceiling mahogany trimmed mirror. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and a sunroom on the second floor. The Primary suite includes a fireplace, sitting area, walk-in closet, luxurious spa bath, separate shower and elegant double sink vanity. Third floor includes a game room, an office, 3 bedrooms and a full bath. There is a Coach House above the garage that is freshly painted and includes one bedroom, a family room, kitchen and a full bath. This is your opportunity to live in a wonderful home in a fabulous location on one of the largest lots in River Forest.

The magnificent W. Muther House, designed in 1913 by William E. Drummond who was Frank Lloyd Wright's chief engineer. Prairie style architecture at its finest with what was at the time an innovative open living concept with a free-standing Roman brick fireplace separating the living and dining areas. The home is situated on one of River Forest's quietest and most charming streets, and there is a breathtaking view from every window. The back yard borders the Forest Preserves and provides privacy, peace and tranquility while being just two blocks from the Metra Station with easy access to downtown Chicago. The new kitchen with granite counters and SubZero refrigerator has two picture windows to take in the view of the English style gardens which include 1600 daffodils, native plants such as Virginia Bluebells, Celadon Poppies, Trout Lillies, Lilacs, and an herb garden. The bright first floor family room opens to a back yard pergola and patio. There is an office on the first floor with a half bath, and an enclosed porch on the second floor with a beautiful view of the woods. The two back bedrooms and bath could easily be combined into a master bedroom suite. The third floor is finished, and there is a recently finished basement rec room with French doors to provide plenty of sunlight. New boiler, central air, hot water heater and exterior stucco. A full set of Drummond's architectural plans will be conveyed with the home.
