Description

Welcome to 1970 Koehler Drive! This home has been owned by only one family, who lovingly cared for it- and it shows! In 1961, when this new neighborhood "Orchard Lake" was being built, the owner worked with her builder to add upgrades that no other home in the neighborhood had. First, to make the home more spacious, she asked the builder to plan an exaggerated overhang/eave on both sides of the rear of the home. This change added an extra 20sf-30sf to every upstairs bedroom- as a result, this home has really nicely-sized bedrooms! Next, she splurged on a vaulted ceiling with rich walnut beams throughout the main floor rooms. The ceiling vault was designed and engineered to begin 2' higher than the builder's typical option, which gave the living room, dining room, entry foyer, and kitchen such beautiful, soaring ceilings! (The current owners had a 12' Christmas tree!) As you walk through this home you'll notice that it feels bright with natural light, and so spacious. You'll also notice how fresh this home feels, because the hardwood floors have just been refinished, the cork floor buffed to a sheen, and the walls painted. But that was just the start. There's so much new here: new tile-work; new lighting; new light switches and outlets; new countertops; new sinks; new toilets, new faucets, and new vanities. Additionally, there are new cordless window blinds throughout the home- so, you won't be hustling to find window coverings for privacy when you move in. The beautiful border spanning the front of the home is planted with perennials- including huge, thriving hydrangeas- while the backyard is bordered by ground cover and shrubs... making this an easy-care yard that is fenced on both sides. And what a great location! For young kids, you can't get better than this location! Koehler Drive is directly across from Lake Park (Lake Opeka), where you'll enjoy Movies in the Park; weekly live concerts in the bandshell; sailing and paddle boating; golfing; playing soccer, picnicking, and hiking the path bordering the lake- as well as ice skating, hockey, and sledding in the winter. Walkable to elementary, middle, and high school; grocery stores within 1 mile; easy access to I-90 and O'Hare airport. Come visit this wonderful home which has been thoroughly enjoyed by the original family for 6+ decades. Your family will love it, too! It's the definition of "move-in ready"!
