Berwyn is famed for its Chicago-style brick bungalows and ornate Victorian houses, but there are also newer styles of architecture in this favored suburb – like 3239 S. Wenonah Ave., a classic brick split-level ranch house built in 1955.

Distinctly angular and modular, the home is as easy to care for as it is to appreciate. The solid brick home has an updated kitchen (2007), hardwood flooring, updated bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and more, all within walking distance to the train.

The living room is bright and sunny with terrific natural light. The refinished hardwood floors gleam and freshly painted walls in eggshell offer a neutral decorating palette for the new owners’ style.

The formal dining room has lovely ceramic tile for a special touch, and designer lighting adds flair. It adjoins the beautifully updated kitchen, casual and crisp in golden ceramic tiling. The kitchen has newer appliances, including a built-in dishwasher, cook top and microwave. The deep double sink has a designer stainless-steel faucet. Light oak cabinetry makes this kitchen warm and cheery even when the famed Chicago winds and snowflakes blow.

A short staircase leads to the second level, where the master bedroom has newer neutral carpeting. Recently painted walls are taupe with a decorator wall in cocoa.

The second bedroom has ample closet space and offers many opportunities for use as a family room or private office. With a newer Jacuzzi tub, pedestal sink and ceramic tiled floor, the full modern bathroom is comfortable and attractive.

A partially finished basement has glass-block windows and solid steel-beam construction. Ideal for laundry, children’s play and hobbies, this space could easily be finished to create additional living space.

The house has many new mechanicals including central air conditioning and a new roof with warranty. A large fenced backyard has a great brick patio for outdoor fun. A two-car garage has alley access.
