49 Brookshire Green in Bloomington, IL  61704

Listing Price:  $162,000

This possibly 5-bedroom home has so much space, you will have room to spare.  There are 4 large bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms.  An extra room in the basement with cabinets could be used as an office, guest room, craft room, or extra bedroom.  This L-shaped bi-level is in an established neighborhood with mature trees.  The house backs up to the wide open green space of Rollingbrook Park on Hershey Road in Bloomington, Illinois.  The house faces south and has a 2 car garage.  The garage has an extra space for a workshop area or more storage.

The kitchen has updated cabinets and new appliances.  A Pella sliding glass door in the dining room allows natural light into the eating area.  The separate dining room off of the kitchen is large enough to accommodate any size dining room table since the room opens up to the living room.  The upper level features a large living room with more bright natural light.  There is a full bathroom in the hallway to the 2 upstairs bedrooms.  The master bedroom has its own master bathroom and Pella sliding glass door to the back deck.  The back deck, which runs the length of the back, of the house allows easy access to the back yard.  The owners and their guests enjoy sitting on the back deck on the north side of the home at any time of day.

Now let’s talk about the basement!  Another large family room makes quality time with guests, kids, or other meeting groups so accommodating.  The downstairs family room has a wood burning fireplace with built-in shelves and cabinets.  The extra room for your office or craft room or spare guest bedroom is the first room you will view. Walking down the hallway, you’ll find a spacious laundry room with big shelves for storage and two equally-sized large bedrooms in the lower level.  The basement also has a full bathroom.  Did you notice in the pictures that the bathrooms all have new vanities and counter-tops?  Three total bathrooms all with updated fixtures.

All of these 4 to 5 bedrooms, three full bathrooms, updated kitchen, two family areas, two car garage with storage or work space, green space beyond your back yard, dining room, Pella sliding glass doors, and much more value priced at $162,000.  You will not only have room to spare, but money to spare also.

This property was listed during 2010.  The tough real estate economy was a tough hurdle to overcome.  This is still a great home, but did not sell during our time as its listing representatives.
