The next chapter of your story begins at 223 Gale. Located on a quiet street in one of River Forest's most sought after locations, this lovely painted lady invites you to walk through to understand how special she is. Step into the foyer, with its grand staircase and beautiful light woodwork, and you'll almost feel like the home is giving you a hug! Both the living and dining rooms--each with their own wood burning fireplaces--are bathed in light throughout the day and the family room--adjacent to the kitchen--is the perfect space to gather for play or to watch TV. The home was meticulously renovated in 2006. Adding on to the back and reconfiguring the space resulted in a home that functions well--and a kitchen that is a real showstopper! With an oversized island, custom Amish-made cabinetry, and a high-end appliance package, this kitchen truly is a cook's dream! All four bedrooms are on the 2nd floor and the master suite, featuring a large dressing room and a thoughtfully designed bath, is the perfect place to unwind after a long day. There is a walk-up attic that offers room for expansion, and the full basement is where you'll find the giant rec room, a half bath, laundry, workroom and several storage areas. The porches & deck are great for entertaining or just taking in nature, and the yard is a perfect play space for active kids. Just 2 blocks to the Metra and an easy walk to schools, shopping, and the nearby forest preserve, you won't want to miss this River Forest gem!!
