I recently toured a must-see home in Cory-Merrill, just southeast of Washington Park.

1280 S Milwaukee St.

This 5,249-square-foot, four-bedroom, six-bathroom curbside standout at 1280 S Milwaukee Street just hit the market at $1.4 million.

The entrance way curves through meticulous landscaping, ending on a front porch with high wood ceilings and tons of natural light — a grand entrance.

Built in 2000, the traditional architecture makes a statement in a neighborhood that sees mostly modern design in its new builds.

The attached three-car garage is a great find — and it leads to a generous mudroom.

Upstairs hosts the sprawling master suite featuring a fireplace, sitting area and huge walk-in closet. Three bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, are all on the second floor, too.

The open and airy downstairs leads to the back patio. A relaxing water feature reestablishes the vibrant garden vibes.

Don’t let the brightly colored walls in the pictures throw you, with interior paint this home will shine.

Bonus — the seller is offering a generous $25,000 credit for restaining the hardwood floors and a new carpet. I haven’t see a credit this large in quite some time.

The home is in a premier location within the Cory-Merrill neighborhood. It is within walking distance of Bonnie Brae Park, Cory Elementary School and coffee, restaurants and ice cream along University Blvd. A winner!
