Whether you're looking for your retirement ranch, room to roam in highly desirable School Districts 57 (Lions Park) and 214 (Prospect High School), or have a growing family and seeking that perfect property to add a second floor, this house has it all in a prime Country Club location with golf course views. Slightly oversized corner lot on a quiet street across from the Mt. Prospect Golf Course, every room is large with detailed trims, six-panel doors and newly refinished hardwood floors. Center entry hall opens to the living room (21x14) with gas fireplace, built ins and dentil crown molding, and roomy formal dining room (14x12) with dentil crown molding, chair rail and trims. Comfortable kitchen (14x13) has Amish-made cabinets, newer refrigerator and dishwasher, and large pantry; could easily be combined with dining room for an open-concept kitchen/eating area. Another spacious hall leads to all the bedrooms. Bedroom #1 (15x14) is spacious with views of the golf course and two closets; bedroom #2 (16x12) includes a picture window and window bench, built-in bookshelves and closet (this room would also make a great den/library); bedroom #3 (10x10) has tons of light and closet with built-in shelving. Bonus room/breezeway (15x13) is awaiting your imagination - has been used a variety of ways - as a TV room, mudroom and small family room; it's open to the kitchen, features exposed ceiling beams, door out to the attached two-car garage and sliding doors out to the back patio. One recently updated full bath with tile floor and linen closet, plus powder room on the main floor. Huge basement includes two family room/rec room areas. One is 31x13 and includes stone fireplace (gas) and matching stone wet bar with overhead TV. Second rec room plus office (26x13) is a more recent remodel finished into two rooms that now include a second rec room and office. Office has storage closets and shelving and rec room includes outside entrance to the basement. Other areas include cedar closet, 13x10 laundry room (unfinished), and 20x13 furnace room with additional storage. Corner lot is 10,500 sf, beautifully landscaped with perennials and many native plants, winner of Mt. Prospect Club's Green Thumb Award in 2015, plus patio, in-ground sprinkler system, in-ground fire pit and maintenance-free decorative fence.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
  • Who Should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
