Description

BEST LOCATION WHILE LIVING IN AN OAK PARK PRAIRIE STYLE GEM! Rarely available, an architectural and prairie-style home, the Joseph S. Guy House, designed by the celebrated firm of TALLMADGE & WATSON in 1915 is on the market for the first time in 19 years! The rich dark brick house invites you inside via a handsome bluestone walkway adorned with four massive limestone planters to a welcoming front porch framed with copper planters. The prairie style stained glass and quarter-sawn oak front door provides you a hint of the woodwork and art glass design found throughout the house in the 20 stained glass windows and the exquisite stained glass dining room french doors. The original tile foyer directs you up three steps into the meticulously cared for first floor of the house. You first arrive at the 22-by-17 foot living room and library framed in quarter-sawn oak and illuminated with original Stueben glass shades. Horizontal bands and the curved 9-foot ceiling define the main living spaces on the first floor. Large vertical casement windows provide natural light into this show-piece space. A massive floor to ceiling brick wood-burning fireplace with an oak mantel define the perfect gathering space. Adjacent to the living room is a south facing nook framed with 4 art glass windows, cushioned window seat and original oak built-in glass cabinets. Perfect for quiet reading. Next stop is through 2 art glass french doors into the formal dining room, which continues the barrel vaulted ceiling along with the Steuben glass fixtures to match those in the living room. The dining room is illuminated by 4 southern faced stained glass windows and showcases built-in china cabinets. Next to the dining room is a beautiful sunroom, separated by another set of french doors, featuring original marble floors. A custom swinging wood door leads you to the butlers pantry which is perfect for a gourmet coffee bar. The large, attractive kitchen has an eat-in breakfast bar and features granite counters and checkered granite and marble floors. Top notch appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Gaggenau cooktop & oven, and a Miele dishwasher. The kitchen steps down to a half bathroom with original fixtures and then onto the spacious basement, which has been recently waterproofed, and could be further finished to provide an informal TV room or kid's playroom. The 2nd floor continues the architectural elements found on the first floor including the horizontal wood bands, rich cherry woodwork and additional art glass windows. The large master bedroom has south facing stained glass windows and abundant closet space including custom-built cedar closets and a large walkthrough closet designed to perfectly manage your wardrobe. The master bath with travertine tile floors, Fulper pottery accents, and granite counters has two Corian sinks, a large tub and a separate large shower stall. Enter the sun room, with an oak ceiling, off the master bedroom through french doors making for a perfect for an office, TV or reading room. Large 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are serviced by a hall bath which repeats the design motif of the master bath.The oversized backyard features a custom outdoor room with a pergola, grill, in-ground speakers, and a gas fire pit set on a bluestone patio.The brick 3-car garage is the perfect backdrop to project movies while you cozy next to the fire on the outdoor couches.Backyard is completely fenced and landscaped in 2021 with abundant flowering shrubs and wildflowers to attract butterflies. This home is ideally located to OPRF High School, Ridgeland Commons swimming pool and ice rink, Oak Park's 4th of July firework display, finish line for the Frank Lloyd Wright 5k, Oak Park Farmer's Market, Pete's Fresh Market grocery store, the Metra and Green Line L Train, and a quick walk to Lake Street restaurants and nightlife.
