Three years ago, this 2011 custom Oak Forest home with porch and pool sold for $460,000. Now? A listing over the weekend of the Craftsman-with-stuck-on-stone property carries a $750,000 price tag. That’s where price reductions from a previous listing by the same agent had landed after an initial ask of $799,500 in November 2014 and pre-holiday drop to $775,000. If the back yard’s oasis doesn’t provide enough of an escape, Oak Forest Park is a (very long) block up the street, which is located east of Rosslyn Rd.
Measuring 2,538 sq. ft., the floor plan opts for an opened-up, shared living area (also pictured at the top of the story):
The room’s fireplace is dual-fueled. An arched entry along the wall at the back of the room leads to the master suite:
A prep top of counter is deep enough for bar-height seating along the perimeter it shares with the living area:
The dining room has a garden view:
The master suite, at the back of the home, gets northern light:
Two of the 4 secondary bedrooms are also downstairs:
Here’s one of the 2 other full bathrooms:
Upstairs, meanwhile, another 2 secondary bedrooms and a full bathroom share the under-eave areas. Here’s the bedroom that made the listing’s photo opp:
Portions of the patio have enough cover to accommodate a ceiling fan — and it’s all outside the master suite’s side windows:
The lot, which measures 6,480 sq. ft., features a poolscape with a small waterfall and a cabana.
Landscaping screens seating that swings:
The listing warms up the cabana’s punch by providing views of the venue this time of year (above) and in the more resplendent summer:
And there’s a night view, too:
