618 Marengo Ave

$395,000 618 Marengo Avenue, Forest Park, IL 60130

This classic brick bungalow two flat is located in the heart of Forest Park. Only steps from the blue line "L" stop, Harlem Avenue buses, Eisenhower Expressway, and Forest Park's downtown shopping and nightlife, this is the home that has it all! The first floor unit is duplexed into the basement for true single family home living. The first floor offers an expansive living room which opens to a formal dining room with original built in china cabinet and picture frame moldings! There are also two bedrooms both large enough for king sized beds. The eat in kitchen plus pantry is in the back of the home, and off the kitchen is a three season porch. Outside that porch is an extremely large deck. Making your way to the finished basement you will find a large study at the bottom of the stairs, deep walk in closet, a full family room, second full bathroom, and a third large bedroom. The basement has a laundry room with two sets of washer and dryers separated for the second floor apartment. And that takes us to apartment number two on the top floor. This cozy unit has been rented since 2006 when I sold the building to the current owner. Never a day with a vacancy it is a cozy two bedroom unit with eat in kitchen and living room. There is also an enclosed back porch. The two and a half car garage has ample room for parking and storage with a full on pull down walk up attic. Don't worry about parking for your tenants because they have a full driveway off the front for their cars. An added bonus is the full on lift station flood control system that has kept the basement dry for years. This is a great starter home, regular investment(run the numbers!), or a perfect place to retire!
