251 Crest Road

251 Crest Road, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137

This 1928 French Tudor has been beautifully revitalized inside and out to create a true showpiece! Awarded 'Restoration of the Year' by the Glen Ellyn Historic Preservation Committee in 2006, as well as the 2010 Gold Award Winner for front porch and yard design by the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association, this residence is truly one-of-a-kind! The major 2006 renovation replaced all electric and plumbing, and added air conditioning, a cedar shake roof with copper gutters and downspouts and extensive interior updates. Exterior improvements by Hursthouse Landscape Architects included the addition of the stone front porch, custom Epe hardwood front shutters, new trees and perennials, and a play area with built-in sand pit. The home is fabulous for entertaining with an airy and circular main floor layout that opens to the outdoor living spaces. The expansive living room features a striking stone fireplace and beamed ceilings. The dining room comfortably seats 10 and functions perfectly for both daily and special occasion dining. Stainless steel kitchen appliances include a Bertazzoni Italian gas range, range hood, Bosch dishwasher and Samsung refrigerator. The main floor office features two sets of French doors for privacy. The second floor is charming, with arched alcoves and built-ins in the three bedrooms, as well as an updated hall bath and sitting 'nook' with built-in linen closet. The basement renovation added an additional full bath with walk-in shower, recreation/play room, bonus room and generous storage and utility rooms. Recent updates include new AC, water heater, refrigerator, dishwasher, fresh paint in most rooms and much more! Plenty of room for expansion on the 240' lot... not to mention the fantastic Crest Road neighborhood and a central location walkable to town, train, pool, parks and dining!
