Enjoy the good life at 5725 Hillcrest Road, a mid-century modern (MCM) home with immaculate maintenance, updates, and upgrades inside and outside. The sellers have designed a magical home and grounds over 40+ years including more than 100 labeled woodland plants throughout the 0.63 acres. Flagstone pathways, a blue stone patio, and dreamy views of the yard from within the home afford privacy and peace. Designed by G. E. Steckmesser in 1954, a student and later full-time employee of the famed Prairie style architect Frank Lloyd Wright, for Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hoekstra, the home features a nearly 4,400 sq ft total including the full basement, 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, an attached 2.5 car garage, an original inglenook and built-in cabinetry, a V-shaped plaster barrel ceiling, and horizontal banded woodwork throughout many of the rooms. The sellers created a large primary bedroom suite and sitting room on the second-floor addition, and a 4-season sunroom with three walls of exterior windows. The other three bedrooms and full bathroom are on the first floor. Kitchen and bathrooms are all updated tastefully and designed to complement the original design. Chevron shaped transom windows are a recurring architectural detail throughout the home and in the redwood and cedar siding too. Full basement has large above-grade windows that sun-drench the room, has exterior access to the backyard, drain tile system, sump pump with backup battery, and crawl space. Zoned central heating and cooling. Original drawings and newer plans remain with the home. Less than one block from Hillcrest Elementary School and a short distance to downtown Downers Grove and the Metra BNSF Downers Grove Main Street stop. Move Confidently!
