Welcome to the Albert A. Standish House in the heart of the Frank Lloyd Wright Historical District. Built in 1887 by Albert H. Standish, a descendant of the Mayflowers Myles Standish, using lumber that was hand selected from the Standish family forest in Michigan. Constructed as a Victorian single-family home with a third-floor ballroom, it was converted in 1921 to a 3 flat. The current owners have lived here for 44 years and have lovingly preserved and maintained this home while partially de-converting the first and second floors. For the last ten years they have used the whole house as a single family. However, the third-floor apartment remains a legal, non-conforming unit, with separate utilities, and is currently zoned as multi-family. With 4,524 square feet above grade and nineteen rooms across three stories, this historic property includes six bedrooms, three bathrooms, separate living, dining and family rooms and space for multiple home office options. Graced with soaring ceilings, original molding, pocket doors, a two-story sunroom connected by a spiral staircase, the original fireplace with a custom tile surround that contains the initials of the original owner, stained glass windows and many built in cabinets. The home has quarter sawn oak floors for the first and second floors and maple flooring in the main kitchen. There are staircases in the front and back of the home and the property offers a deep lot, numerous perennial plantings, a 12-foot screened gazebo and a three-car garage built in 1993 which is served by a concrete driveway. This property offers unlimited opportunities. Completely de-convert this home to single family and customize the space to meet your needs with plenty of room for home offices, yoga and work out space, media rooms, art studios the possibilities are endless. The large, unfinished, dry basement contains a laundry area and a tremendous amount of storage and workshop space, but also offers even more expansion opportunities for your future wine cellar or billiard room. Utilize the high ceiling third floor apartment as a spacious primary suite or as a welcoming place for multi-generational extended family living, as an Au Pair quarters or lease it for additional income or as an Air BnB. The 300/400 block of Grove is a quiet friendly street. The neighbors celebrate summer holidays with coffee get-togethers and the annual block party is a top summer event.

Only several blocks to the green line, schools, the library, Scoville Park, the shops and restaurants at Lake and Oak Park, Trader Joes, Lake theater and all downtown Oak Park. 2021 Property tax without the senior, senior freeze and disabled veteran exemption is $21,466.
