Beautifully landscaped downtown Craftsman on extra deep lot! Everything is done for you! Move in Ready! Conveniently nestled in charming and highly desired downtown Crystal Lake. 5 minute stroll to Starbucks, Metra, downtown restaurants and dozens of quaint shops. You have found your home in small town USA, but still a train ride into Chicago. Home is only 2 minutes from a bike path that goes directly to 3 Oaks and other amenities.


Start your mornings sipping a cup of coffee in a beautifully landscaped backyard surrounded by a 6ft privacy fence, with a new wood composite deck and stone patio. Cook your meals in a beautiful gourmet kitchen with maple cabinetry, stainless steal appliances, under cabinet lighting and granite counter tops.  Spend your evenings in front of a stone surround gas fireplace or outside curled up by the fire pit, under the lighted pergola and finish the night by taking a relaxing bath in the newly remodeled spa like large master en suite with heated floors, while your guests enjoy the upstairs bath that has been updated with travertine tile.
