About 988 Buena Road house

Inviting Colonial with eye-catching curb appeal due to its brick facade, colonnade, large symmetrical windows and center front entry. This impressive home is set back from the street, sited on a .33 acre wooded parcel. With 2,898 square feet above grade, it offers 4 bedrooms, 2.1 baths, a finished basement, and an attached 2-car garage. A coveted location within the H.O. Stone subdivision, you will enjoy easy access to downtown Lake Forest, Lake Michigan, award-winning schools, bike/hiking trails, outstanding restaurants, and many convenient commuting options. In fact, there are three nearby Metra train stations! Step inside to appreciate the traditional floor plan with wide foyer and adjacent formal rooms. The expansive living room has maple wood flooring, recessed lighting, surround sound, crown molding, built-in bookcases, and tall windows that invite compelling views of nature from three sides. With similar finishes, the spacious separate dining room is an ideal spot to host holiday meals, or entertain family and friends. The renovated kitchen has an "open to family room" design. Highlights include 48" cherry cabinetry, a center island with granite top, upgraded stainless steel appliances, newly refinished maple floors, and a sophisticated L-shaped planning desk. The family room is complete with fireplace, custom cherry built-ins and French doors. Near the kitchen, the laundry/mud-room also provides quick access to the pretty rear yard. All four generously-scaled bedrooms are on the second level. It is rare for all bedrooms to have crown moldings and large closets, yet these do. The en suite primary bedroom features crown molding, a spacious custom walk-in closet, and a renovated bathroom with marble vanity top, and seated shower. In January of 2023, the sellers refinished 1,076 square feet of the basement with Pergo plank flooring, red oak stairs, a separate office/playroom, and a rec room area that has the potential to be a 5th bedroom. This entire space is light, bright, and feels brand new. Additional major improvements include: Refinished hardwood floors (2024), upgraded attic insulation (2024), new Maytag washer (2023), new sewer line from house to street with 35-year warranty (2022), new 200-amp electrical panel (2020), new impact resistant roof and 6" oversized gutters with 35-year transferable warranty (2020), new Marvin Signature Ultimate windows in SW bedroom and basement w/egress (2020), new granite kitchen island, new stainless steel refrigerator and Bosch gas cooktop (2020), new cedar fence with 6 X 6" posts (2019), and HVAC replacement (2014). Pride of ownership is evident in every room of this beautiful home. It is absolutely in move-in condition!
