Park Ridge is a picturesque suburb with a "small town" look and feel, located only 14 miles northwest of downtown Chicago. It is a coveted place to live with its vibrant Uptown shopping area, including the historic Pickwick Theater, charming parks, tree-lined streets, pleasing architecture and excellent schools.

This custom colonial-style home with exterior Tudor detailing, built in 1988, is located in an area of Park Ridge popularly known as the Golden Triangle. It is within walking distance of Centennial Park, the sled hill, the Park Ridge Park District's Recreation Center, Maine South High School, Lincoln Middle School and Washington Elementary School.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

It features more than 3,200 square feet of living space, a large finished basement with work room, four bedrooms, two full and two half baths; an oversized, attached two-car garage and a fenced, professionally landscaped yard.

Listing agent Gerald Berkowitz of Century 21 Elm gives additional details:

What would your perfect buyer look like?

"This is the perfect home for someone who wants to plant roots into a great neighborhood and community. The home is conveniently located close to schools and recreation and Park Ridge is ideal for someone who wants to hop on the train and commute to Chicago."

What is the coolest thing about living in this neighborhood?

"Since the home is located on a limited-access street with only eight other homes, it has almost a country-living feeling even though you are actually close to all the conveniences."

What is one adjective you would use to describe this home?

"Comfortable! It is a great place to return to and put up your feet."

Name three trees, shrubs or plants featured in the yard.

"There is a majestic Century oak that arches over the house, providing it with energy-saving shade, as well as river birches, Persian lilacs, burning bushes and holly in the professionally landscaped yard."
