This quaint home is a nature lover's dream! Tucked away on a deep, professionally landscaped Harding Woods lot - overlooking Salt Creek and the forest preserve - this home is like no other. As the only surviving structure of the original Meyer's fruit farm, this private sanctuary has been awarded the Audubon Society Natural Wildlife Habitat award and offers rare views of Harding Woods and Salt Creek. It features amazing perennial gardens, porous paver sidewalks and patios, brick driveway and an irrigation system that uses water pumped from Salt Creek for ease of maintenance. It features hardwood floors throughout, energy efficient windows and a whole house generator. The fabulous first floor living space offers an expansive living room with easy access to the kitchen and 2nd floor staircase. The renovated kitchen features solid oak Mission style cabinetry and a stainless-steel appliance package. The formal dining room leads to the wonderful family room at the rear of the house that features a gas log fireplace, beamed ceiling and two sets of French doors (equipped with rolling storm shades) giving access to the exterior with private entertaining space and wonderful views of the surrounding nature. The recently renovated first floor full bath has beautiful river rock tile, steam shower and towel warmer. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a renovated second floor full bath & laundry. The primary bedroom features a walk-in closet and access to the incredible sun-room with a wall of windows and picture-perfect views of the creek and forest. The sunroom's vaulted ceiling, skylights and electric fireplace offer the perfect spot for a home office, library or reading room. The lower lever features a recreation room with a third fireplace and tons of storage. Complete the package with the enclosed porch attached to the garage which features a hot tub and even more views of the creek and forest. This home makes everyday feel like a vacation!
